As tensions escalated in Europe until the point of the Second World War, another war raged beneath the surface, unbeknownst to foreign onlookers. Not only did Hitler and Nazi Germany start an unprovoked war that took the lives of over 50 million soldiers, they also exterminated millions of innocent people for no other reason than their religion. The Holocaust began in 1933, reached its peak during the Second World War, and came to an end with the war in 1945. Hitler used the Holocaust as a mechanism to purge his German state of any lesser people (especially those of Jewish heritage) that might be of some threat to his superior Aryan race. 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 Ally forces pressured Germany to create a homeland for those who suffered through the Holocaust. Over the decades that followed, ordinary Germans struggled with the Holocaust’s bitter legacy, as survivors and the families of victims tried to regain their property and wealth that was taking away during the Holocaust. In 1953, the German government made payments to individual Jews and to the Jewish people as a way of apologizing for the crimes which were committed by the German people.
Violation of Human Rights of Jews during the Holocaust Of all the examples of injustice against Jews or rather, humanity in history, the Jewish Holocaust has to be one of the most prominent. In the period of 1933 to 1945, the Nazis waged a vicious war against Jews and other "lesser races". This war came to a head with the "Final Solution" in 1938. One of the end results of the Final Solution was the horrible concentration and death camps of Germany, Poland, and other parts of Nazi-controlled Europe. Nearly 5,933,900 Jews were annihilated during the whole process which was termed by historians as “THE HOLOCAUST”.
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. There where more things to The Holocaust World War 2, Hitlers rise to power, and Anne Franks Diary.
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.
Approximately 6 million Jews and 5 million other people starting from the year 1933 were killed. They were put to death. There was one main person responsible for all of this. Adolf Hitler was a Nazi German leader who attempted genocide and was part of one of the worst wars in history, WWII. Hitler took up the role of initiating the holocaust which resulted in the death of many innocent people and numerous Jews.
The Germans tried to kept their actions as secret as possible but as word got out of what the Germans were doing the Jews tried to fight back but were outnumbered. Because so many inmates dies at the death camps from starvation shooting and disease large crematories were constructed to erase traces of destruction. In 1945 American and British troops found out about Nazi's plan and liberated the death camps. By the end of the war the Jewish dead numbered more than five million , three million in killing centres and other camps, one point four million in shooting operations , and more than sixty thousand in ghettos.
The Holocaust was the almost complete destruction of Jews and others by the Nazis during World War II, which lasted between1939 and 1945. We can learn much from this event and ways to prevent similar events from happening again. However, it can be compared to today’s Arab Israeli Conflict, which is the cause of a dispute over the land of Palestine. The Holocaust was the worst genocide in history. The Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler wanted to eliminate all Jews as part of his plan for world power.
He commanded the destruction of the Great synagogue on Tlomacki Street on May, 1943 to celebrate the German victory. The ghetto was ruined. During the uprising He had killed 7,000 Jews. 7,000 Jews of Warsaw were deported to the Treblinka killing center by the Germans. Almost all of the Warsaw Jews were killed in the gas chambers, the moment they arrived.
What is genocide? “Genocide is a deliberate, systematic destruction of racial cultural or political groups.”(Feldman 29) What is the Holocaust? “Holocaust, the period between 1933-1945 when Nazi Germany systematically persecuted and murdered millions of Jews, Gypsies, homosexuals, Jehovah's Witnesses, and many other people.”(Feldman 29) These two things tie into each other.The Holocaust was a genocide. Many innocent people were torn apart from their families, for many never to see them again. This murder of the “Jewish people of Europe began in spring 1941.”( Feldman 213) The Holocaust was one of the most harshest things done to mankind.
