not difficult, most of the locals in Europe were happy to 'name a Jew' to save their own skin
The Nazis established camps in Germany, Poland and other occupied territories. They took Jews, Slavs and other "Subhumans" and "Undesirables" from all over Europe and sent them to these camps where they were murdered. Approximately six million Jews and four million other people, men, women, and children, were murdered either in these camps or right in their home towns.
AnswerDuring the holocaust many Jews and non Jews alike were killed by the Nazis. The Germans set up what they called extermination camps which was the place were the Germans killed there prisoners. The other place was called a ghetto and those were the places that they kept there prisoners and made them work and do other things that the Germans wanted done. Then in the end Hitler committed suicide and had the camps blown up so that the government had no proof that the holocaust was real, but there were survivors that had proof of its existences.
AnswerDuring the holocaust many Jews, and non Jewish people were murdered, this includes people with disabilities but in general if you didnt fit the "typical German" tall white, and blue eyes with a broad figure, you were out. They were taken into a big room which was filled with leaking gas pipes which caused the death of many Jews, and the others that were captured. In these rooms called the gas chambers, tons of Jewish people were packed inside to die.
AnswerDuring the Second World War, six million Jews were murdered in Europe. They were killed because they were Jewish. The world is filled with museums to remember this tragedy. From Jerusalem to Washington, and thru the remains of the concentration camps in Germany and Eastern Europe, the Holocaust is probably the most documented genocide in world history. The Germans were very proud of what they were doing, they took all those pictures and filmed clips you see today in movies and documentaries.
AnswerDuring the holocaust Hitler took revenge on the Jews and the non Jews but mostly on the Jews because of what happened to him when he was younger living in Vienna. he took them away to the concentration camp where they were put to death in the gas chambers known as the shower room, also he would kill the littler ones and sickling and keep the healthier ones as slaves. he put a big red 'j' on the Jews passport he would also vandalise their businesses and also he would send the children to separate schools from the Germans. Hitler also kicked the Jews out their own homes, and sent them to the concentration where they were punished really badly. 'What Hitler done was wrong and unfair he shouldn't have done it, also i hope there is no one out there following Hitler's footstep'.
AnswerDuring the holocaust Jews and people who helped the Jews were sent to consentration camps or pushed into ghettos. Ghettos were cramped places where houses were shacks and many people lived in them. Jews were sent to consentration camps only to do work or to be killed in gas chambers and such. Everyone thinks Hitler was crazy but maybe he wasn't, maybe he did want it all to end but it was to late to stop it. Yes he shouldn't have killed all those innocent people but think it wasn't just him, it was many people all who had the power to stop it, so why didn't they? Yes some people may say that their grandparents or maybe even parents were brainwashed but they weren't. Hitler youth may have been, but still every person can think for themselves. Holocast was a way for Hitler to get rid of every one he didn't like or the types of people he didn't like
AnswerMillions of people were killed in concentration camps during WW2 by Hitler because of their race including Jews, Gypsies, or because they were homosexuals, and so on.
Hitler picked on the Jews and other groups of people including Gypsies,gays ect because they were the minority. They had less people fighting for them. although there were alot of Jews in and around Germany there was still less of them than other groups of people. Hitler used them to blame everything on,for Hitler Jews were like a scape goat. For the comment a little above about it being because of what happened to Hitler in Vienna it is wrong. During the time just after the Germans lost the war Hitler found a group of people who said that it was the Jews fault, he lived his life believing this evil and completely wrong lie!AKA JEWS DIED!
AnswerThe Holocaust was a time when millions of Jews were prosecuted and killed during the time in the Second World War. The Nazis established concentration camps in Germany and Poland and other occupied territories. They took Jews, Slavs and other 'Undesirables' and 'Sub-humans' from all over Europe and sent them to concentration camps to be killed. Approximately six million Jew and four million other people, men, women and children, were murdered either in these camps or in their own home towns. There were also six death camps that existed only to kill people by gassing them.
The Nazi took over Germany, Hitler, their leader, decided to exterinate the people who were Jews, millions died during this horrible cause, there are very few survivors alive today.
The Holocaust refers to the persecution and murder of Jews by Nazis under the German leader Adolf Hitler. This term is sometimes also used to describe genocide of Jewish people in other time periods or regimes as well. The origin of this word is likely from Greek origin (holokauston) where" holos" means whole and "kauston" means burnt. The holocaust lasted from April 1933 till the end of World War II.
The estimated number of people who were murdered during the holocaust adds up to 14 million, including many women and children. Out of these nearly 7 million were Jewish, (about 68% of Jewish people in Europe), the rest were Gypsies and Homosexuals, mainly those labeled as outcasts by the Nazis at that time.
In the beginning of the Nazi movement most Jewish establishments were boycotted and several laws were introduced to discriminate against them. This included laws against mixed marriages, appearance in public places, and against holding government jobs. They were also ordered to wear a label or yellow star which helped identify them in public places, and moved to confined spaces called the ghetto.
The first report of physical violence against the Jews came from Germany and Austria where the Jewish establishments were destroyed and looted, Jewish people were attacked and a large number were sent to concentration camps.
Then the Nazis started torturing and executing Jews, by transporting them from ghettos to concentration camps on the pretext of providing them with work. Camps were set up for different purposes. The different camps included concentration cams, extermination cams, labor camps, transit camps etc, where Jews were held for different time periods and purposes. From 1938 till the end of the war, these camps were the site where endless torture, medical experiments and murder was inflicted on Jews.
The conditions at these camps were beyond comprehension. People were not given enough food, given hard wooden beds to sleep on, and treated very unkindly. Many unethical medical experiments were also conducted on adults and children against their will. The concentration camps were designed for hard labor and those living there often died of starvation. The extermination camps were specifically set up to perform mass murders. The more famous extermination camp at Auschwitz is known to have killed more than 1 million Jews.
Those that survived the Holocaust were finally liberated from the camps by the allied forces, starting in mid 1944. By that time the Nazis had succeeded in destroying large amount of evidence implicating their role in the holocaust. However, the gruesome memory of the holocaust still remains fresh in people who survived this terrible ordeal.
The Witnesses were (and are) neutral in matters of war. They do not believe in war, nor will they participate in any such conflicts. Hitler did not like pacifists or conscientious objectors, and when the Witnesses refused to become Nazis or fight for the Fuehrer, they were imprisoned. Many died in the concentration camps. He also didn't like them because they would not salute.
Also, he was mad that he couldn't get some of the people to sign a paper to renounce their faith and serve him. I know this because I'm a Jehovah Witness and proud to be one. They were also the only group of people that could walk out of the prison camps by simply signing a document that said they would renounce their faith. Most never gave it another thought, they would rather die in the camp than turn their backs on their faith. Their show of unity even managed to impress the hardest of prison camp leaders.
The Watchtower 1st July 1953 explains: 'The facts are incontrovertibly established as to his [Hitler's] hatred for the chosen people of God in these times, Jehovah's witnesses. And because the fleshly Jews were once themselves at one time God's chosen people they have always been the targets of attack by Satan and his dupes.'
