One main condition during the Holocaust was lice and fleas. This was because so many people were in such a small area, a room that could only fit one hundred, would be packed with almost one thousand people, the lice and fleas were everywhere because of this. Men would get their heads shaved, and woman would get their hair cut really short, or sometimes even shaved all the way off like men, they did this in order to try stop the spreading of lice. In the barracks the lice and fleas were spreaded the worst. The bed would move in the straw beds because they were so infested with the bugs. Also men and womens clothes were infested with the bugs badly because they could not wash their clothing, so the lice and fleas
What happened to the Jews during the Holocaust was unthinkable; millions of people were persecuted. Jews were asked to vacate their homes and were shifted to specific areas in cities known as ghettos. In these ghettos, several families had to live under one roof in cramped and unhealthy manner. About 6 million Jews were sent to concentration camps. Jews were transported in freight trains to these camps under inhumane conditions, and many perished on the way. They were hardly given any food. They were also made to work long hours, some times 12 to 14 hours without a break. The Nazis did not spare women or children. According to estimates, the Nazis killed 1.2 millions Jewish children and thousands of gypsy and disabled
Have you ever wondered what it was like for the jews living in the camps? The daily life in the camps is a realistic clarification of how jews were treated and taken cared of in the concentration camps. People were taken out of their homes by the Nazis and were forced into concentration camps. The Nazis were a party of people that believed that their German race was better than any other race that is why jews and many others were forced out of their homes into the camps. The largest number of prisoners were jews but other individuals were arrested and locked up for many purposes such as, for nationality and for political joining. Prisoners were subjugated to unbelievable torture from the very moment they reported to the camps
Mostly Jews were murdered, some died on the way there. They’d get beaten if they did not do what they were told. The solders would either tap you to the left or the right. The left you automatically go to the gas chambers, all children would go to the left. The right they let you live and work in the camps. They would have the prisoners to translate to the other prisoners to registrate. They’d get feed hot water and old pieces of bread.
The conditions of the camp were unbearable. The prisoners were barely fed, mainly bread and water, and were cramped in small sleeping arrangements. "Hundreds slept in triple-tiered rows of bunks (Adler 51)." In the quarters that they stayed, there were no adequate cleaning facilities or restrooms for the prisoners. They rarely were able to change clothes which meant the "clothes were always infested with lice (Swiebocka 18)." Those were sick went to the infirmary where also there were eventually killed in the gas chambers or a lethal injection. The Germans did not want to have anyone not capable of hard work to live. Prisoners were also harshly punished for small things such as taking food or "relieving themselves during work hours (Swiebocka 19)." The biggest punishment was execution. The most common punishment was to receive lashings with a whip.
Adolf Hitler and his actions are the cause of World War II. “Those who want to live, let them fight, and those who don't want to fight in this world of eternal struggle they don't deserve to live, ” by Adolf Hitler. This is an important quote since Hitler believed in the power of war. His parents died when he was young, so he went into the army very young and fought in World War I.
As I’m sure most people know Adolf Hitler was the leader of the Germans from August 2 1934 to April 30 1945, but do you know that as Fuhrer of Germany he was the driving force behind the start of WWII. During his reign he tried to bring Germany back to the powerful country it had been before the First World War. In this paper I will prove that Hitler’s actions lead to start of WWII, and I plan to prove how his direct disregard of the Treaty of Versailles pushed the world into WWII.
When they arrived at the camps they all had to shave or cut their hair, switch their clothes out and completely get rid of their human dignity. According http://www.theholocaustexplained.org/ks3/the-camps/daily-life/journeys/#.Wc5La0t97rd their daily routine consisted of waking up early then they did Appell, which is roll call. During roll call they had to stand in rows for hours, without moving, and in all weather. For breakfast, they drank coffee or herbal tea, for lunch they ate watery soup and if they were lucky, they could have turnip or a potato peel, then for dinner they ate a piece of black bread, a small piece of sausage, and some marmalade or cheese.
They were forced to receive identification numbers and new housing inside a small, dingy, and poor camp. They were also given vaccines, to protect them from diseases that they might encounter while in the camp. The living space inside the camps was very small, and most people were forced to live in small shacks or stables.
The prisoners heads were shaved and they were given threadbare clothing. During the winter, the clothing was slightly heavier. The guards beat and whipped anyone who disagreed with them, and forced the prisoners to run long distances even though the inmates were weak from malnutrition. Rations included a small portion of bread and sometimes bread. The Nazis had their captives run to work in war factories where they endured harsh treatment. Because the prisoners were overworked, under feed, and were forced into such close quarters,many of them were sickly and were able to receive the treatment
They did what every jew in a concentration camp, they either got to a gas chamber and died of poison or they got sent to the right which they survived for now and they had to do daily runs, and if they fell, they got killed. They also got sick
‘From the first day that he "seized power," January 30, 1933, Hitler knew that only sudden death awaited him if he failed to restore pride and empire to post-Versailles Germany.’ The Second World War was the deadliest battle in History. Figures estimate that over 59 million people were killed during its conflict. German leadership was under Adolf Hitler, a ruthless dictator who was the chancellor of Germany during the majority of the conflict. It is debatable that Hitler was solely responsible for the events in which lead to and occurred during the Second World War. Hitler was responsible to a large degree, however cannot be accountable for every aspect in which the
Inmates resembled skeletons and were so weak they were unable to move. The smell of burning bodies was ever present and piles of corpses were scattered around the camp. However, you could be “saved” from the crematoria to be used as test subjects to cruel experimentation and used as lab rats for any experiment the scientists wanted to conduct. Later in the war, extermination camps were built. These were specialized for the mass murder of Jews using Zyklon B to ensure a painful, long, and torturous death. The bodies would then be thrown into the fire and all clothes, teeth, and shoes would be sent to pursue the German war front. At max efficiency, 20,000 people would be killed in the gas chambers a day. As the red Army approached near to liberate the Jews in concentration and extermination camps, SS officers sent prisoners on a death march across hundreds of miles, where they ran with no food or water, no matter the weather, until they reached the closest camp. SS officers proceeded to blow up the camps to hide the genocide from the
Jews were taken there by train, and upon arrival they were forced to give up their possessions. They were then herded in to gas chambers, or "showers" as the Nazis called them to avoid panic, where poisonous gas was released until everyone had died.
