Jewish Holocaust Reflection Michelle Moye

Initial Understanding

The Holocaust was a mass genecide of the Jews, the persons of disabilities, and others that the German's believed did not fit social norms. It was the persecution and murderings of all of them.


It began was the discrimination of Jews and then quickly became an event that separated from their communities and persecuted; and finally they were treated as less than human beings and murdered. During the Second World War the Nazis sought to murder the entire Jewish population of Europe and to destroy its culture.

What reasons did they have to arrest the Jews?

The police were allowed to arrest people on suspicion that they were about to do wrong. This gave the police huge powers. All local police units had to draw up a list of people in their locality who might be suspected of being “Enemies of the State”. This list was given to the Gestapo – the Secret Police. The Gestapo had the power to do as it liked.

How hard was it to escape the Nazi's and Germany? And why was it so hard?

Nazi Germany technically permitted emigration from the Reich until November 1941. However, there were few countries willing to accept Jewish refugees and wartime conditions hindered those trying to escape.This mad it extremely difficult for the Jews to escape.

Why is the Jewish Holocaust the one that is the most known holocaust?

The Jewish Holocaust was the most known Holocaust because it was the attempt to eliminate inate an entire race of Jews. German authorities also targeted other groups because of their perceived "racial inferiority", which included Gypsies, the disabled, and some of the Slavic peoples. Other groups were persecuted on political, ideological, and behavioral grounds, among them Communists, Socialists, Jehovah's Witnesses, and homosexuals.

Refik Veseli

Refik Veseli exemplifies the meaning of courage for me because he was a sixteen-year-old Albanian photography student, who risked his life to save Jews. He helped Jewish refugees from Yugoslavia, with the permission of his parents, to hide in his home and avoid deportation.


The Jewish Holocaust was the genicide of an the Jews. Hitler attempted to discard the entire Jewish race. Abortion relates to the Jewish Holocaust in more ways than you'd think. Unborn babies like the Jews, are not seen are legal "persons." They were both seen as parasites that you could just get rid of. Abortion is the genicide of unborn babies.

Sixty years ago the Nazis tried to change reality by changing words. With new words, they were able to put 6,000,000 Jews to death. With new words, we in America are killing our unborn at nearly the same rate that Hitler killed Jews - only we have killed 45,000,000 in our brazen efforts to exterminate unwanted babies.
