Holocaust By: Kara Boring

DRY TIMBER-the ground for the Holocaust where all the hatred started.

Antisemitism- Prejudice towards Jews.

There have been centuries of anitsemitism or hatred towards the Jews and Hitler was the fuel to the mass murders.

Eugenics- improving the human population by controlling the breeding to increase the desirablity.

Spark- When the Nazis began with the policies and laws to end the Jewish race.


Favorable weather-Nobody stuck up for the Jews they just watched everything happen because Hitler made them believe that the Jews were evil and bad.

HOLOCAUST- the systematic, bureaucratic, state-sponsored persecution and murder of six million Jews by the Nazi regime and its collaborators.

The Holocaust was state-sponsored because the state or government was the head in charge of telling the people what to do. An example of the Holocaust being state sponsored is Kritallnact.

KRITALLNACT- Heydrich directly sent a telegram to Munich to not stop the burning of Jewish buildings and synogauges; to only stop people if they started looting the businesses. The non-Jewish buildings were to be protected from al damage.

Einsatzgruppen-The Einsatzgruppen began mass shootings of Jews. The Einsatzgruppen worked with the government on their vision to exterminate all of the Jews.

The Jews faced systematic persecution from the Nazis by targeting their religion and making others view it as bad to be a Jew. Hitler enforced antisemitic propaganda for all of the Germans to see to change their view. Lebensraum was also put out there for the Germans to see and help sway them for Nazism so they would have more living space.

Systematic annihilation is the utter destruction of something. The Jewish population was annihilated with extermination camps. The harsh living conditions provided made disease spread. Mass murders and gas chambers were put into action also.

Jews were the primary target of the Nazis because they thought the Germans were the clean race the race that needed to stay and the Jews needed to go because thy were different.

"Following the attempt on the life of Secretary of the Legation vom Rath in Paris, demonstrations against the Jews are to be expected in all parts of the Reich in the course of the coming night, November 9/10, 1938." -General Heydrich
In concentration camps
"The Holocaust was not only a Jewish tragedy, but also a human tragedy" - Simon Wiesenthal. Never shall I forget the faces of the children, whose bodied turned into wreaths of smoke beneath a silent blue sky" - Elie Wiesel

"Roma were also forced to wear symbols on their clothing, then moved into the newly evacuated ghettos from where they were taken into concentration camps and either killed or worked to death." The Roma were directly hated and were forced into labor camps to die.

The disabled- The disabled were sterilized and euthanized without a thought because they were viewed as useless.

Homosexuals were also sterilized so the homosexuals would not continue. They were also sent to death camps and ghettos.

"Thousands of young Jews resisted by escaping from the ghettos into the forests. There they joined Soviet partisan units or formed separate partisan units to harass the German occupiers." (USHMM)

"German Security Police officials planned to deport the Danish Jews while martial law was in place." (USHMM)

People should know that the Holocaust was a great tragedy and should be remembered and never repeated because of the pain it has caused so many. It should be taught all over all aspects of it. The sub forums affected too should be noticed. A key lesson for the Holocaust is to love everyone no matter how different they are or if someone is saying something bad about them.
