The only way to freedom was at the death camp. They were steered just because they were Jews. And World War ll was the most devastating place for them during that time. Six and a half million of the Jews and people were killed and the only thing they both wanted to be was free. Kristina and Pobel had lived in the sewers for as long as they can remember but Pobel was killed and Kristina escpaed the sewers and made it out of decease camp.
She eventually got caught and got sent to the Auschwitz death camp where her, her jewish family members and hiders, sadly got killed. Eventually her father went back to the attic which they lived in, and found little Anne Franks diary. He than got her diary published as a book and it is now one of the most famous Holocoust storys in history. And to this day the attic which Anne and her family hid in, is now a museum which many people go to wonder how they lived and how terrible it
The SS guards at the camp worked the people relentlessly and once they became too weak to work they killed them in the gas chambers. Undeniably, splitting up families, sending them to gas chambers, and working the prisoners to death is proving that Auschwitz Birkenau was most definitely a
The book Night by Elie Wiesel portrays him as a young boy living and surviving through one of the most horrific moments in history, the Nazis and all the concentration camps including Auschwitz, Buna, and Buchenwald. As a young boy Elie grew up in Sighet, a small town in Romania. Elie and the rest of the town, including his father mother and siblings were captured by the Germans and were taken to many of the concentration camps. While at the camps Elie was left with his father and experienced many of the horrors of the camps. Throughout the book Elie and his father saw some of the awful things that happened at the camps including people burned, hanged, murdered, beaten, starved, and put to work under terrible conditions.
World War II is one of the worst times throughout history. One of the worst times in World War II is the Holocaust. There is a lot of uncertainty of when the Holocaust started. The Holocaust was an event in time where Germany captured and imprisoned people who angered Germany but mostly imprisoned Jews. The prisoners were taken from their homes, split from there family and sent to concentration camps across Germany, at these camps prisoners were forced to work, tortured and killed.
One of the largest death camps in Germany, Auschwitz, was a result of the Wannsee Conference. This camp was known for the gas chambers that killed 6 thousand Jews a day (The Holocaust Notes, pg 4&7). After waiting in line to be evaluated by “doctors,” Jews were separated in different groups, most of which were sent to the “showers” that were actually gas chambers and got carbon monoxide poisoning. The others who weren't killed immediately worked at the camp and either starved to death or were later purged. By the end of World War 2, about 6 million Jews were murdered in concentration camps (Textbook, pg 503-504).
The conditions in camps were inhumane. Women, children, the elderly, and people who could not work were killed immediately. Millions of innocent people died, and very few people did survive. In Night, Elie Wiesel shows that the relationships between father and son change dramatically due to the inhumanity of death
Before entering the ovens the Jews were stripped of everything for a ¨shower¨ where they all merged in. ¨Very close to us stood the tall chimney of the crematoriums furnace. It no longer impressed us.¨ The Jews got locked in the chambers and were left there to burn slowly and painfully. The Holocaust was many years full of torture to innocent people. Dehumanization, neglect and the ovens were not the right solution to Hitler's plan.
When liberating Auschwitz the Red army described the people as living “skeletons”. The camp smelled terrible because of all the unburied bodies that were stacked up in sheds and broken buildings. They also found over seven tons of human hair, about 836,000 women’s coats and 349,000 men’s suits. Then when liberating Majdanek the Red army found much of the same characteristics but the prisoners were so far past the breaking point that they would say when they were going to die, and they wished for it. There were stacks of dried, bleached bones and skulls.
The horrible event of the Holocaust persecuted , forced jewish people to leave their home, and sent to camps to work till death. The holocaust left many people homeless and orphaned. There are books, movies and autobiographies describing the tragic time of the Holocaust. The first book ever written was “The Diary of a Young Girl” by Anne Frank which is about a young girl hiding in the “Secret Annexe” during Nazi invasions. Secondly, there is a movie called Life is Beautiful by Roberto Benigni which is about a father, Guido, and his son, Joshua in terrible conditions at a concentration camp.
