What is a concentration camp to you? Most likely you would say a horrible place where they followed Jews. To the many Jewish people who had nowhere to go, this was more or less a place to stay and not a place to die. So in other words to the many people that were being shipped to these camps, they almost had no choice. If you had no food water or shelter, most likely you would turn to the first person to help you, and the first person they turned to wasn’t the right one at all. But how could someone like Hitler, a failure in school, become such a feared warlord? Well from research I learned that Hitler had a meeting to create a group that would eventually slaughter the Jews through thorough planning and most likely through the start of a war.

I chose the concentration camp Treblinka, it was established in November of 1941. With the support of the SS and Police Leader for District Warsaw in “Generalgouvernement”, SS and police authorities established a forced-labor camp for Jews (Treblinka). Later on it became Treblinka I. In addition to it being a labor camp, it also served as a “Labor Education Camp” for non-Jewish Poles, who the Germans believed to have violated labor discipline. Jewish and Polish prisoners were put into separate compounds of the camp, and deployed at forced labor. The killing center known as Treblinka II was completed in July of 1942, about a mile from the Treblinka I, and a rail spur was added that led from Treblinka I to Treblinka II. The Treblinka camp
In 1944, medical doctor Miklos Nyiszli, a Hungarian Jew and family man, arrived at the Auschwitz camp in Poland. In an effort to stay alive after being separated from his daughter and wife—though he feared his days would soon be counted—he volunteered to work as a pathologist under Nazi Dr. Josef Mengele. Working under the supervision of a Nazi superior meant one became Sonderkommando. As a Sonderkommando, one had the privilege to wear civilian clothes and receive better meals. Hence, working for Dr. Mengele, Dr. Nyiszli had certain privileges other Jewish prisoners did not obtain.

Millions of screaming voices never to be silenced as each and every soul stays to haunt the terrible site. No matter who it was the Germans came and killed to further pursue the goal at task. If seen as a threat, then eventually people from that group would be killed too. Yet the thing everyone should get out of remembering the most horrific event in history is Never Forget.
