When the Holocaust began and Auschwitz came about the horrible treatment began to millions of people. Adolf Hitler became dictator of Germany, and began the Nazi Party and the plan of killing millions of people (mainly Jews). It started off with " One of those groups was the National Socialist German Workers' Party, or the Nazis, who were joined in 1919 by Adolf Hitler, an Austrian who had served as a German soldier and who became the Nazis' leader and spokesman. In 1923, Hitler attempted to gain power in Bavaria, his base, by means of a military uprising, but he was caught and sentenced to a short term of impriso... ... middle of paper ... ...king advantage of free slave labor and forcing more hours on the prisoners. Jews forced in gas chambers and on death marches where they died because they were either too weak or just died.
The word “Holocaust”, was originated from the words “Holos” meaning whole, and “kaustos” meaning burned. To Adolf Hitler, Jews were an “inferior” race. After years of Nazi rule, Hitler’s “final solution” came under the cover of world war, with mass killing centers constructed in the concentration camps. Jews, Jehovah's Witnesses, Roma Gypsies, Priests and Pastors, homosexuals, and black children were all victims of the holocaust. Most of the victims left were from other countries.
The Holocaust The Holocaust was the mass murder of European Jews by the nazis during the second world war. It took place from the 30th of January 1933 to the end of the war in Europe on May 8th 1945. The nazi dictator Adolph Hitler planned to wipe out the entire Jewish population as a part of his plan to conquer the world. Holocaust refers to any widespread human disaster but it's special meaning is the annihilations of six million Jewish men, women and children by the nazi regime. The Jews were singled out for extermination because the nazis had a hatred for them as they considered jews as a race whose goal was world domination and was an obstruction to the Aryan dominance.
At a certain point, it came to be the most practical solution to the ‘Jewish problem’. If this is true, why did the Nazi treatment intensify, from cruel bullying to mass extermination? The German occupation of Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union gave the Nazis control over millions of Jews. Many of these Jews were poor and vulnerable, and had not been particularly well integrated into the non - Jewish society. In Eastern Europe, the Nazis began the genocide – their large-scale and systematic campaign to destroy all Jews.
The German dictator Adolf Hitler blamed the Jewish population for the depression Germany was in at the time and he wanted them out of the country. His plan soon after evolved into killing Jews because there were so many. The Jewish population was not the only group targeted. Homosexuals, disabled, gypsies, communists, and many others were also targeted by the Nazis. The targeted groups could try to flee but most of Europe was occupied by the Nazis which made it very difficult for them to get to a neutral or Ally occupied territory.
Then in 1939 after Germany had successfully invaded Poland, the “New Order” was implemented in an attempt to eliminate all Jews. The Nazis began to force Jews into designated areas known as ghettos. These ghettos were not just a place for the Jewish population to stay, but used as a starting point from which the Jews were then placed into concentration and death camps. When placed in these camps, many were killed immediately upon entering the camps by the gas chambers, ovens, or bullets. Some didn’t even make it to the camps, but were shot and dumped into mass graves by the German mobile killing squad called the Einsatzgruppen.
Hundreds of labour camps were created, the people within these camps made war machines for the Germans. The other types of camps created during this time were, Transit camps, Concentration camps and Extermination camps. Conclusion: Adolf Hitler started out small but eventually he became the leader of the Nazi party which eventually got elected as government of Germany. Hitler wanted to start a New Germany and those who he deemed unfit were sent to camps which eventually evolved into concentration camps. The Jewish population started to decrease due to this but some Jews managed to survive by fleeing from the country or were constantly on the run.
The Holocaust The Holocaust was the Nazi persecution and murder of Jews in the time of World War II. In 1939, Germany's powerful war machine conquered country after country in Europe and thus bringing millions more Jews under their control. They established concentration camps to imprison Jews, Gypsies and other victims of ethnic and racial hatred, and political opponents of Nazism. They killed many of them and sent others to concentration camps. They also moved many Jews from towns and villages into city ghettos and later sent these people to concentration camps as well.
Treblinka is the second most important German wartime extermination camp in all of history and it can take credit for the greatest amount of killings in the shortest amount of time. It is known as the “forgotten camp” because shortly after the war, Nazis tried to cover their tracks in hopes that nobody would find the destroyed evidence located there. Treblinka should be remembered along with Auschwitz or else the countless lives lost there will be forgotten as well. Auschwitz- The Final Solution was the Nazi plan in Germany during World War II to get rid of the European Jewish population through genocide. In January of 1942, this policy was instituted and planned out at the Wannsee Conference.
Concentration Camps during the Holocaust The Holocaust was a time in history that was brutal, sickening, and ruthless. The Holocaust refers to, “The systematic, bureaucratic, state-sponsored persecution and murder of approximately six million Jews by the Nazi regime and its collaborators.” (ushmm.org) The Nazi’s came to rule in January of 1933 in Germany. They supposed that the German’s were “ethnically greater” and the Jews considered “mediocre” were a threat and problem to the German society. The German’s did not only target the Jews, they targeted Gypsies, Slavic people, Russians, the disabled, homosexuals, Jehovah’s Witnesses, etc. If those people were captured but not killed yet, they were sent away to concentration camps.
