Upon arrival Jews were subject to disease, starvation, and constant torture from the Nazi’s. After only a few short weeks, the head of the Jewish Council, Adam Czerniakaw, committed suicide in an act to show his people not to conform to the Nazi’s harsh ways, and to take control of your own lives again. Almost daily, Jews from the Warsaw Ghetto were stuffed in rail cars and transferred to the Trebinka Extermination Camp, where over 300,000 Warsaw residents were gassed and killed. Many attempted to escape but few were successful. With only 60,000 remaining, most of which were teenagers, they came together and formed the Jewish Combat Organization (ZOB) and the Jewish Military Union (ZZW).
They were stripped of their political rights and taken from their homes and friends with limited to no warning and uncertain what was next to come. An abundance of people were forced to one of the thousands of concentrations camps where they were separated from their families and directed to either a labor camp, where many would suffer, or to a death camp, where were they would unfortunately be executed immediately. In 1933, Hitler finally was named Chancellor of Germany and began to organize what he called the “Final Solution” (Balson). He and his Nazi party believed Jews, Gypsies, homosexuals, and the mentally ill were violating racial purity in Europe and devised a way to slowly kill them off and remove them from Germany and the rest of the world (Balson). Many people know and understand the events occurring during the Holocaust, but they probably don’t realize there was a plethora of steps in setting up concentration camps, persecuting the targeted groups, and keeping Hitler’s and the Nazis’ intentions a secret.

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 thought Aryans “master race” should run out Jews and communist. German people saw Hitler as a God and Jews as the devil because of how Hitler manipulated them and the violence towards them. Beware of the media because it can influence violence. Hitler was influence by leaders of his time to bring violence towards Jews and other “inferior” races. He then taught what he learned to the Nazi party and enslaved and destroy Jews and others.
