“The first concentration camps were made to detain people without trial, usually under harsh conditions.” (www.theholocaustexplained.org) The Nazis did this because they discriminate and hate the Jews. “German authorities established camps to handle the masses of people arrested as alleged subversives.” (www.ushmm.org) Germany blamed the Jews for their loss of World War I. “Concentration camps held two purposes, these purposes were to demoralize and dehumanize the prisoners.” (www.owlspace-ccm.rice.edu) The Nazis tortured them and made them break on the inside. It was sad to be taken to a concentration camp because it meant that it was the end of your life.
Everyone has the right to the protection of the law against such interference or attacks.” and in the book it says “Dozens of inmates were there to receive us, sticks in hand, striking anywhere, anyone, without reason.” and that shows the unnecessary abuse from the camp. And also the inmates killed to help themselves and they were skin and bones so whenever the harsh winters came they all fought to live and to get better clothing. And so the Nazis went way out of their way to try to rid the world of jews but in the end they
All these brave people faced harsh punishments such as being hung, shot, or killed with poisonous gas. To conclude, concentration camps did horrible thing to people just because Hitler did see them as "desirable", Hitler thought that we should live in a world without Jews.

When they harbored Max, they were doing something extremely dangerous because if the Nazis found out, everybody who lived there would be kidnapped and killed. Also, Hans gave bread to the Jewish man, even though he knew that the Nazis would punish him, but he had to do what he knew was right. He was not a coward for standing up for the Jewish people. Liesel knew that harboring a Jew was extremely dangerous and against the law, but Liesel and Max both have lost people due to Hitler, so they had something to bond over. Rosa also shows courage by allowing her husband keep Max safe in their basement, and having a soft spot for Max, even though he is a
The prisoners in the Holocaust were tormented and treated so cruelly, and the acts so inhumane, that bystanders had to resist, help, and fight back against the Nazis even if the consequences were death. The people that resisted weren 't just in the camps (Meir Berliner), but also outside the camps (Sophie Scholl), and people even hid Jews in their homes in Poland (Zegota). Sophie Scholl, who was an anti-nazi, helped to spread the information about the Holocaust . Scholl and her group made leaflets and passed them around secretly to encourage the people to resist passively against Nazis. “...the leaflet warned [the citizens] that Hitler was leading Germany into the abyss...” (Sophie Scholl Paragraph 12).
These people were tagged as numbered instead of called by their names, sent to live in places and leave all their belongings behind to be burned by the Nazis. The Jewish people were not just deprived of their identities or their belongings, but of all their human rights. The Jews during this time were treated like nothing, they were treated like the dirt that the Nazis had stomped their boots through and spat on. This was not only a time of fear and death, but this was a time for war.

Without considering him, he raped Hassan as a child. His act of cruelty didn’t only affect Hassan but it affected his relationship with Amir. Assef continued his Hazara executions and got rid of most.
It too is a misfortune that you were never prosecuted for your heinous crimes against humanity; moreover, the records of your human experimentation were destroyed some 50 years ago (Baron). I hope this letter inflicts emotional pain on your past actions as you now have a perspective of a Jew. We are humans, not some inferior race that should be irradiated. Your other targets such as the Gypsies and even the mentally and/or physically disabled individuals are as human as you. Your role in the killing of thousands of innocent people not only brought physical and psychological pain to those individuals, but this pain has only perpetuated discrimination and turmoil throughout the world.
(“Genocide”)This is genocide is consider institutional or systemic oppression because the Nazis took the control and decided to kill all the Jews without any valid reason. This cause oppression because they didn't have any chance to the Jews to react or express, Jews only have a sure destine and was to be killed or hid for the rest of their
Nyiszlis story is contributed greatly to the history of the Holocaust. Although people might say the way Dr. Nyiszli acted in Auschwitz wasn’t right, he did it so he can share his story and the truth with everyone. He had a reason for it all. Now the world knows how cruel and cold-hearted they had to be to do all those evil things. Nyiszli tells us how SS officers were so heartless that they put thousands of people in ovens without even caring.
