As a result of the Holocaust, millions of men, women, and children of various national, ethnic, and social backgrounds died or had their lives impacted forever. The word holocaust was originally used to describe the destruction or slaughter on a mass scale (especially cause by fire); however, this term has been more widely accepted to refer to the genocide orchestrated by Adolf Hitler from January 30, 1933, when he took over as prime minister of Germany, to May 8, 1945, the end of the war in Europe. There is controversy over whether or not the term “Holocaust” includes only those murdered of Jewish decent. Today, it is generally held that the term “Holocaust” refers to all those put to death in the Nazi concentration camps, ghettos, and murder squads, and the term “Final Solution” is given to refer to the genocide of the Jewish people (also referred to the as “The Final Solution to the Jewish Question”). There is no way to determine the exact number of lives taken during the Holocaust, but six millions is the widely accepted death toll for Jewish victims and five millions is the accepted ... ... middle of paper ... ... extermination of every living thing in certain areas of the Kurdish north.
First prisons, Poland political soldiers, were forced to do labor and then it was used for exterminating Jews. What are the origin and consequences of Auschwitz concentration camp on people during the Holocaust? During the Holocaust, Auschwitz was then opened as a death camp, many people were killed, some survived the horrible years of treatment, then the camp was liberated when the Holocaust came to an end. Adolf Hitler, became dictator of Germany with the plan to annihilate the entire Jewish race, opening up Auschwitz as a death camp, then forcing millions out of their homes, organizing them at Auschwitz to prepare for their death. When the Holocaust began and Auschwitz came about the horrible treatment began to millions of people.
Today you probably hear that almost, hopefully everybody, thinks Adolf Hitler is an evil man. Hitler was an evil man, because he made many lives miserable by killing millions of people during the Holocaust. The Holocaust occurred from 1933 to 1945. The National Socialist (Nazi) party was in power in Germany. During the Holocaust, over 6 million Jews were killed!
When this happened Hitler made The Final Solution which he killed all the Jews he could before the war was over. We then ended the war in 1945. This was very bad many people where killed during this time.The Holocaust was one of the biggest gencides in the world. Over 17 million people died in it mostly Jews.

The Holocaust, meaning destruction or slaughter on a large scale led by Adolf Hitler, was the mass killing of Jews, communists, political prisoners, gypsies, homosexuals, and anyone else that Hitler thought worthy of slaughtering. The target for this mass killing was all of the Jews of the world. The result of this action taken by Hitler and the other Nazis was over six million victimized before Hitler was defeated in 1945 at the age of 56 years old. The majority of the killings took place in large concentration camps located in different areas primarily around Poland. The concentration camps were designed specifically to murder all Jews and other so called undesirables in quantity.
During the first part of the extermination one and a half million Jews and other civilians were murdered by military groups which rounded them up and shot them. Gradually the emphasis changed to concentration camps, where the prisoners worked to death as slave labourers. Also there was another type of camp called an extermination camp in which the victims were murdered in gas chambers. The most famous of these camps was Auschwitz, which was a combination of both types of camp – concentration and extermination in one place. Approximately one million and three hundred thousand people perished
The persecution and genocide were carried out in stages, like making laws. Various laws, like the Nuremberg Laws of 1935, were to exclude Jews from the civil society and enacted in Germany before the outbreak of World War II in Europe. Concentration camps were established in which inmates would work in slave labor until they died of exhaustion or disease. Whenever Germany conquered new territory in Eastern Europe, the Nazis murdered more than a million political opponents and Jews in mass shootings. Most of the Jews or Romanis that were found in overcrowded ghettoes were transported by freight trains to extermination camps and if they survived the j... ... middle of paper ... ...issected shortly afterward.
Its history proves that the camp demolished thousands of people and left the few survivors with terrifying memories. As a death camp that killed 99% of its residents within the first couple hours, Treblinka should be and known as a powerful, malignant place where countless people were killed. It should be remembered and be as prevalent in today’s society just as Auschwitz is, showing the effect it had on Jewish prisoners, as well as other minorities throughout the 1940’s. If society really studied other camps during the Holocaust and what went on in those camps, it wouldn’t have the perception that Auschwitz was the worst institution just because it was the most populated.
Hitler became chancellor of Germany and he did not like the Jewish people so he made death camps or most commonly known as concentration camps and him and his followers killed about 5,860,129 Jewish people.The Jewish people thrived at a population of approximately 9,796,840 million before the Holocaust. After the Holocaust there about 3,936,711 left. It was a terrible time for the Jewish people.Most people were killed in death camps or concentration camps.The camps were Auschwitz-Birkenau, Belzec, Chelmno, Majdanek, Buchenwald, Sachsenhausen, etc. There was also Einsatzgruppe a mobile killing squads that when around and murdered Jewish people. The prisoners in concentration camps were jews, gypsies, socialists, and homosexuals.
Between 1933 and 1945, nazi Germany established about 20,000 camps to imprison its many millions of victims called jews. These camps were used for a long range of purposes including hard labor. There were many jews in the camps some were beaten and tortured by wooden sticks and whips. Some had to ride in trucks to the camps that smelled horrible and many jews had died in the trucks on there way to the camps. There was about 9 million jews in the camps total.
