For most people, the Holocaust evokes feelings of empathy for the victims, and anger toward the persecutors. The Holocaust, defined as “the systematic annihilation of six million Jews by the Nazi regime,” began with the rise of Nazi Germany (“A Historical Summary”). When the Germans lost World War One, the Jews received the blame. Anti-Semitism, or the hatred toward Jews, spread like wildfire throughout the nation. Hitler came to power with ideas of a master race, resulting in the persecution of many across Europe in what became known as the Holocaust.

Therefore, using the power he had, he would try to accomplish creating the perfect Aryan race. How would he do that? He would do that using Concentration Camps that were brutal and incomprehensible.
Vladek arranged for his family to hide in the bunker when the Germans were raiding the ghetto during the Holocaust. Artie was discussing the bunker to his father-in law, “I arranged for us a very good hiding spot” (Spiegelman, 110). Vladek used money to buy hiding places. Vladek suggests that the bunkers be in places that are not too obvious too be spotted in. False walls in sheds or in the back of the house.
