However, one murder of a German soldier resulted in more than a hundred Jews being killed as retribution and so individual rebellions we’re not favored. (“Acts of Resistance”). Instead, small groups formed while in captivity and constructed plans of escape. These groups revolted silently but ferociously; daring to steal guns and ammunition and sneaking in explosives to level their most frightening enemy, the crematorium (“Armed Resistance”). Resistance in camps hardly ever ended with the prisoners finally achieving their well sought out freedom, but there were a select few that somehow managed to not only escape the camp, but also survive the numerous German soldiers who were sent out after them.
Over the span of the Holocaust over 6 million Jewish people were senselessly tortured and killed. The man in charge of this horrible act is no stranger to history, Adolf Hitler. There is only one logical explanation in my opinion for the way Hitler acted. Paranoia. You can clearly see that as soon as he felt that he was being threatened by someone or some group, he just took them out, like the Jews, the Gypsies, the swing kids, and many more.
Some fought the Nazi’s; others refused to go to camps and ran away. Some Jews worked to preserve their traditions alive. Over 6 million Jews died in the Holocaust. After the war survivors were put in Displaced Person camps. The Holocaust will go down as one of the most brutal genocides ever.
As Albert Einstein once said, “The world is too dangerous to live in, not because of the people who do evil, but because of the people who sit and let it happen.” The horrific accounts told of the Holocaust, inside the ghettos, symbolize the negligence shown to others during World War II. World War II started with Germany attacking Poland on September 1, 1939 (World War II in Europe). Many citizens of the surrounding countries were terrified because of the horrendous acts they heard of. Hitler took over and tried to kill as many Jews as he could. The word ghetto did not originate during the time of the Holocaust; ghettos have been referred to the sixteenth century (Ghettos).
It is quite obvious that Hitler and the Nazi Party had a different point of view and beliefs than any of the other groups. Hitler saw events in history as a racial struggle. He had blamed the German defeat of World War I on the Jews also other economic hardships. As well as that, they thought that the Aryan (Germans) were superior to the Mongrel (Jews) and non-Jewish people. According to Holocaust Museum Houston, the “Nazis considered the Jews a race whose goal was world domination and, th... ... middle of paper ... ...e Jews wanted world domination, and did not share all of the same religious and cultural beliefs.
From the second Adolf Hitler become chancellor Germany become a darker place. Germany was humiliated after WWI and Hitler wanted the world to see that Germany isn’t weak and they weren’t to blame for their troubles. Hitler blamed the Jews and those who didn’t fit his “elite race”. He started a genocide and when the world reacted all they could do was save as many lives as they could for so many had already been lost. The nations of the world could have done so much more to prevent the genocide and if they couldn’t prevent it they could have stopped it sooner.
Regarded as a major fault in the world’s history, the Holocaust claimed the lives of over eleven million people, including six million Jews. Initiated by Adolf Hitler and Nazi Germany, the Holocaust progressively denounced the Jews’ rights and severely restricted the Jewish peoples’ lives with many anti-Semitic decrees. Moreover, other groups of people, such as Gypsies, Slavic people, disabled people, homosexuals, Communists, and Socialists, were also mistreated in Nazi Germany, as they were considered “racially inferior”. At first, only the Jews’ rights were limited, and the Jews did not have the same rights and privileges as German citizens. However, over time, the treatment of Jews worsened and concentration camps were created throughout Germany and Europe in order to house Jews and any people that challenged Nazi supremacy.
The other reason Jews struggled so desperately to survive was not to merely see the light of another day, but to see the Germans become enraged by their "resistance", living. Several camps resisted through violent ways which is what greatly impacted the Germans and the concentration or death camps located there. Resistance took a violent appearance in the camp Treblinka when the inmates rose against their oppressors and set fire to Treblinka; however, only abou... ... middle of paper ... ...Organization of the Revolt in Treblinka".
