    Nazi Extermination Camps Anti-Semitism reached to extreme levels beginning in 1939, when Polish Jews were regularly rounded up and shot by members of the SS. Though some of these SS men saw the arbitrary killing of Jews as a sport, many had to be lubricated with large quantities of alcohol before committing these atrocious acts. Mental trauma was not uncommon amongst those men who were ordered to murder Jews. The establishment of extermination camps therefore became the “Final Solution” to the “Jewish

    “When I came to power, I did not want the concentration camps to become old age pensioner’s homes, but instruments of terror” -Adolf Hitler. Concentration camps had a friendly appearance on the outside, but it wasn’t enough to mask the horrific tortures on the inside. Hitler strategically planned every part of the terrible sites to complete his plan of the “Final Solution,” or to exterminate all of the Jews. The placement of the camps, how the camps were built, and the daily routines of the Jewish people

    incorrectly. These deniers are known as Holocaust revisionists. Now, these people do not believe that the Holocaust simply did not happen. Instead, they believe that historians have hyperbolized the death toll and that they have morphed the extermination camps into something that they are not. Some even believe that Hitler has been portrayed wrongly as the villain. They think that Hitler was one of the Jewish peoples’ best friends and was a great aid to them. Also, revisionists have conjured up

    “Why is the killing of 1 million a lesser crime then the killing of one person?” (Scream Bloody Murder). Throughout history groups of people have been killed by ruling powers, but the unlawful acts went without title until recent events in the 1940ʼs. The mass killings in Germany activated against the Jews created a new word, genocide. “Genocide refers to the widespread murder and other acts committed by governments or other groups with the intent to destroy - in whole or in part- a national

    confined into harsh ghettos and concentration camps, and treated inhumanely. One of these ghettos was known as the Warsaw Ghetto, located in Warsaw, Poland. According to the the article “Warsaw,” from the Holocaust Encyclopedia, “The Warsaw Jewish community was the largest in both Poland and Europe” (1). As a result, it makes sense that Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party would establish a ghetto within the city, and concentration and extermination camps nearby. According to Mitchell Hurvitz, the author

    anything remotely close to it. That’s why when people hear of how Richard Nixon and his national security advisor, Henry Kissinger, killed 600,000 Cambodians when they bombed it in 1969, they don’t believe it.

    exercised by the Nazis against European Jewry during the Second World War ranks among the most horrendous of all. Over six million innocents were eliminated between 1941 and 1945, with over 1.5 million of them exterminated in the Auschwitz-Berkenau camp alone. Although Allied leadership had knowledge of the Nazi genocide and possessed the capability to intervene in the slaughter taking place at Auschwitz-Berkenau, they failed to act in any significant manner to stop the killings.
