This statement depicts a glimpse of what the Jewish people had to endure during the holocaust. The holocaust was an extreme form of massacre. It is the deliberate killing of a large group of people, especially those of a particular ethnic group or nation. The duration of the holocaust was from January 30th, 1933 to May 8th, 1945. The holocaust began in the year of 1933 when the Nazi party came to power, the leader Adolf Hitler believed that the Jewish people belonged to a 'low' and 'evil' race, and they were affecting the lives of the Germans pessimistically. Hitler's motto was to punish, alienate, and torture anyone who differed from him, with religion being a main factor. The Nazi’s blamed the Jews for all the social and economic problems
Hitler was a German leader in World War ll. He had power over every single German in that country, but it was negative. Hitler brainwashed the people in Germany to believe that the Jewish belivers were bad as well as gypsys and homosexuals. He killed them or took them to consentration camps and forced hard labor on them because to him that was morally correct.
According to the texts and eyewitness accounts, the Holocaust had horrendous effects on the people who lived through it. During this time Jews were being rounded up and put into concentration camps by order of the German government. Writings and testimonies from survivors of the Holocaust are around even to this day. According to these sources, Holocaust survivors suffered tremendously since they were treated as less than human , they lost loved ones, and were constantly abused.
Hitler had shown unwillingness to tolerate the Jews and once he was appointed Chancellor, he started to take elimination measures like deportation, forced emigration, and isolation to enforce his belief. He took advantage of Germany’s weakness in World War One, then used it as an opportunity to blame the Jews for Germany’s defeat. Hitler’s political party was the largest political party in Germany thus allowing them to draw very large crowds to gatherings. He had very good oratory speeches with hand gestures that easily manipulated people to adhere to his views. Hitler constantly targeted the Jews because he knew people believed in these speeches. People in Germany were already anti-semitic but Hitler made it worse by constantly consuming them in his speeches. From the way he spoke about the Jews, we could clearly see the possibility of genocide. Hitler wanted Germany to be free of any humans that anyone other than his ideal master race so he personally selected bodyguards to be part of a group called the SS. Hitler was responsible for ordering the SS to carry out the extermination of anyone who did not fit this ideal. The SS handled oppositions using force and as a result of which people were forced to give into the idea of violence. Sometimes people purposely went along with this Holocaust ideal due to the fear of getting killed. These terrors allowed the holocaust occur
During the Holocaust, the living conditions for the Jewish population were horrifying and unthought of. The lack of sanitary facilities meant they had to remove dirt and pests from clothing by waiting in a line that took up most of the day. The barracks that the prisoners slept in was in terrible conditions and the rooms were damp with leaky roofs (“Auschwitz…”). The health and how the jewish lived was no concern of the Nazi soldiers.
By Hitler taking these actions and deciding to carry out the Holocaust he killed 12 million Jewish, disabled, and communist people.. Also by carrying out the Holocaust he changed the way many saw the world, it made some realize how cruel the world can be. Although this is not the only genocide in history, it is usually the most thought about and sympathized about. Also this was the first time the term “Genocide” was used.
The Holocaust was one of the most despicable acts of crime committed in history. It was the slaughtering of six million Jews along with other minority groups. Anti-semitism was on the rise in Germany due to one man, Adolf Hitler. The Nazi leader is known to be one of the most infamous dictators that were able to rise to power. Leading Germany, Hitler improved the economy, started World War II with the idea of Lebensraum, and exterminated Jews due to youth anti-semitic influences.
Adolf Hitler, chancellor and dictator of Germany from 1934 to 1945, was founder and leader of the Nazi Party. Under the leadership of Hitler, Nazi Germany created concentration camps to segregate Jews and many other minorities from German society. Though, the Jewish population was not great in Germany, individuals who had converted to another religion or had ancestors who were Jewish were also categorized by the Nazis as a Jew. The “Final Solution,” the genocide of more than six million Jewish people, consisted of gassing, shootings, starvation and random acts of terror. This is the most familiar scheme from the
Have you ever wondered what the death camps were like in the holocaust? When all of the jews and enemies suffered at the camps. They starved, beating, worked to death, and killed. The holocaust was a awful time for jews and the enemies. Families were split apart and never seen again, men worked hard labor in the camps, mothers lost their children from deaths or just taking away.
Human rights and life go hand in hand as two of the most important objects in world that should never be violated or abused in any way, shape, or form. Life in the concentration camps during the events of the Holocaust that took place between 1939 - 1945, did exactly those two things to the inhabitants. In short, life in the concentration camps was so cruel and inhumane, that those who suffered the unimaginable throughout their time there should not have had to call their placement in these camps “living” because life should never be as horrid as The Nazis made it out to be.
In the article, it states, “Inmates were always hungry. Food consisted of watery soup made with rotten vegetables and meat, a few ounces of bread, a bit of margarine, tea, or a bitter drink resembling coffee. Diarrhea was common. People weakened by dehydration and hunger fell easy victim to the contagious diseases that spread throughout the camp”(17-18). The Nazis built suffering into Auschwitz by giving their prisoners very little food, and starving them. By starving, they purposely tortured the prisoners by making them starve and turn on each other, taking away their trust, and making them become very sick, and wish to be dead. Lastly, the work given to the prisoners in Auschwitz Birkenau caused them to die from exhaustion and they would be worked until they died. Many prisoners were worked to death and died of natural causes. If any of them were too weak or ill to be working, then they would be murdered in the gas chambers. In the article, it states, “Some inmates worked as forced laborers inside the camp, in the kitchen, or as barbers, for example. Women often sorted the piles of shoes, clothes, and other prisoner belongings… Those who were too ill or too weak to work were condemned to death in the gas
Jews endured starvation, torture, and extreme hard work. Jews daily life in concentration camps were hard and life threatening. During the Holocaust, Jews suffered the most traumatic experience anyone has ever experienced in any of the World Wars. The daily life of Jews started with arriving at the camps and going through selection, then the Jews would endure their daily routines and work schedules, and, most importantly, the Jews had to try to survive throughout this whole experience. The beginning was just to survive selection once arriving at the concentration camps.
Hitler invented a program known as ‘The Holocaust’ a systematic extermination of any Jews, gypsies, disabled, and people who were of different religious background as Hitler believed in a pure race. Hitler persecuted any individuals who he saw would be a potential threat to his rise in power. He persecuted and executed social groups such as the Jews, gypsies, disabled, and people who were of different religious background as they were regarded as ‘inferior’. In the year 1933, Jews numbered approxiamently 525,000 (0.8% of the German population) (Museum, German Jews During The Holocaust, 1939–1945, 2015). Hitler had firm racial policies and believed that non Germans should not have any citizenship rights. Many of these people were placed into concentration camps (Museum, Concentration Camps, 1933–1939, 2015).
During the Holocaust there were huge social and economic issues that took place. Hitler didn’t give people the rights they were supposed to have. He solved problems by killing people like Jews, Gypsies, Disabled, and Homosexuals. People were punished in unfair ways based on their beliefs or just the way they looked.
Adolf Hitler came to power over Germany in January of 1933. He hated Jews and blamed them for everything bad that had ever happened to Germany. Hitler’s goal in life was to eliminate the Jewish population. With his rise to power in Germany, he would put into action his plan of elimination. This is not only why German Jews were the main target of the Holocaust, but why they were a large part of the years before, during, and after the Holocaust. Hitler’s “final solution” almost eliminated the Jewish population in Europe during World War II. At the end of the war and along with his suicide, the Jewish population would survive the horror known as the Holocaust and the Jews would eventually find their way back to their homeland of Israel
