The shoes were supplied and they were wooden clogs, but the catch was no socks were provided. Because no socks were worn their feet would get blisters and sore all the time. The striped pajamas got washed only every six weeks usually and you worked and slept in the same clothes so they got very dirty. The Nazi’s would kill the Jews if they did not do what the Nazi’s said, or they did not like the
Under Hitler’s Natzi regime, the Jewish people faced mass extinction and suffered perhaps the worst atrocities ever committed to mankind. The concentration camps that Jewish people were sent to were merely a path to their own excruciating death. Their lives consisted of an unrelenting schedule, with less than the bare necessities and ultimately culminated in any number of inhumane scenarios of their
The conditions while working in camps made resistance strenuous, yet the Jews still desired to disobey. Since a large amount of Jews resisted at work, the Nazis punished those who never meant to cause any harm. Resistance came in many forms during the Holocaust, whether it was organized
Night: Dehumanization “He was so terrible that he was no longer terrible. Only dehumanized” (F. Scott Fitzgerald). Jews were treated so badly that they began to act terribly but eventually they reached the point beyond repair and it was all due to dehumanization. The Holocaust took place in WW2, it was a horrific event that killed millions of Jews. Many Jews were taken from their homes and were killed, or were treated less than animals until death of starvation or exhaustion.
An estimated twenty five percent of the Cambodian population died because of the beliefs of the Khmer Rouge. Many dies because of harsh labor camp conditions and malnutrition (Krkljes). In Night, Elie describes the scene in the shed when they are taking a small break from marching. He says there are many dead corpses on the ground just laying there. “After trampling over many bodies and corpses, we succeeded in getting inside.”
The Holocaust is one of the most memorable tragedies known to this day. Many people are very uneducated to this day about what really happened during the Holocaust and how these people were treated. An estimated 6 million Jews were murdered during this time. Just that shows how brutal and heartless some people can be towards other human beings. Millions of Jews were treated extremely inhumane and were executed like animals.
In retaliation to Jews for killing a German policeman in self defense on July 31, 1940 the nazis carried out a public mass execution(“Holocaust”). This day was later named “Bloody Wednesday”. They were tortured by anxiety, were insecure of the present, torn between hope and despair, and felt helpless. There were many people who were persecuted during the Holocaust that weren’t Jewish: spouses of Jews, Roma Gypsies, resisters, priests and pastor, Jehovah Witnesses, political enemies, homosexuals, the disabled, and African-German descent. Spouses of Jews had to choose between getting a divorce or being sent to concentration camps along with their Jewish Spouse.
On September 1, 1941 Hitler ordered all of the Jews to wear a yellow star. If they removed it and were caught they were imprisoned and taken to labor camps or shot on the spot. Catchers searched for hidden Jews everywhere. If Catchers found them they would be taxed large amounts of money. Jews didn’t have much money already especially since they had taken over their businesses and workplaces, so being taxed was not good for them.
One example of when this right was violated is towards the beginning of the book, when Elie and his fellow Jews just arrive to their first concentration camp and Elie witnesses “babies.. Children thrown into the flames” by the truckloads (Wiesel 32). This had to be extremely demoralizing to see your own people die such a horrible death and also for those victims of the deaths to be babies and children is even worse. This event violated human rights because being put to death by flames is torture and it is degrading and unfair treatment and punishment not only to those who died by it but for those other inmates who had to witness it. Another event that violated the fifth article of human rights is later in the story when Elie is punished unjustly and receives “twenty-five” whip lashes and then is verbally assaulted by his Kapo for “mix[ing] into other people’s affairs” (Wiesel 57-58).
The Holocaust was a genocide in Germany of all European Jews and ‘undesirables’, led by Adolf Hitler; he managed to kill 6 million jews using concentration camps and systematic killing. In the concentration camps, the Jews were forced to do labour work in factories to manufacture goods for the war; conditions were terrible, as Jewish individuals were not treated well physically and psychologically. Previous knowledge and impressions of mine, regarding the Holocaust, came from classroom discussions, reading textbooks, and by doing assignments. Therefore, the film depicted how truly horrific the Holocaust was, as it ruined the lives of innocent individuals, due to a factor of their lives which they could not control; can not decide to be Jewish,
The Holocaust was one of the worst examples of genocide that has occurred in the world and throughout history. Millions of people died during the Holocaust, including Jews and gypsies as well as homosexuals and those with mental illnesses. When people think of or remember the Holocaust, they typically relate it to concentration camps. The camps were used to house and execute prisoners and also perform hard manual labor. Every aspect of daily life in the camps was horrific as the conditions were brutal, both mentally and physically.
The Holocaust was the state sponsored murder of over six million Jews. The Germans targeted multiple different groups due to their racial inferiority, such as the gypsies, the disabled, or homosexuals. The Jews were the Nazi genocides main target, however the other minority groups were treated horribly as well. All of these individuals were treated ruthlessly without mercy, and they had no way out. The prisoners of the camps were forced to complete extremely difficult labor, and on top of it they were horribly mistreated and some were eventually executed.
1933 to 1945 is a time known as the Holocaust, a word meaning sacrificed by fire or burnt. It was a government endorsed plan lead by the Nazi’s and their brutal leader Adolf Hitler, to separate, persecute and execute European Jews. By the end of the Holocaust around 6 million Jews died from execution or disease, which was far off the Nazi’s ultimate goal to eliminate 11 million. Jews were the main target but Sinta and Romanian people (also known as gypsies), homosexuals and people with disabilities were also harmed.
The tragic events of the Holocaust began when Adolf Hitler came to power. He tortured and killed Jews, homosexuals and gypsies because of their beliefs. The Nazis believe that the Jews posed as a threat to the German civilization so they discriminated them for years. They were forced to work on labor camps (concentration camps) and beaten if they attempted to withhold from pain. Furthermore, they faced starvation and illnesses, which also contributed to their deaths.
The Holocaust, an event that many people does not want to happen again. The Holocaust was one of the worst events in the 20th century, many people died during it. There were many causes for the Holocaust, but the main cause were Anti-Semitism, which was a hatred of Jews. Along with causes, there were also many effects that happen after the Holocaust. There were not only affects that took place in Germany but around the world.
