Jewish Holocaust Reflections By: Victoria Herrera

Understanding

My initial understanding of the Holocaust is that it took place during World War II. The Nazi brought change in Germany but it took a horrible effect to the Jewish community. Later on, Jewish Germans were expelled from their jobs and left unemployed. Thousands of Jews were sent off to concentration camps where most Jews died.

How this project changed my understanding , for me, is that innocent Jews suffered through this tragic event. How they had to deal with major changes in their community and how they had to adapt to these changes. Like how everyone started to reject them and they had to lose their jobs because of how the community started to see them.

When the war was over did Jewish children feel happiness?

They were not, when the war started the kids were sent off to shelters but most of them went into hiding . They were left abandoned with no parents and they were worried about their parent's well-being. They were scared and lived in the shadows afraid of being caught Unfortunately, once the war was over most Jewish kids had no end of their suffering and their parents never came back. Many would have to face the truth and have no family

Frank Foley

Frank Foley was born in Somerset in 1884. In the 1930s, he worked for the Foreign Office and became Head of the British Passport Control Office in Germany. During his time in Berlin, Frank is known to have saved an estimated 10,000 German Jews after Hitler and the Nazi Party came to power in Germany in 1933. he was described as a “Scarlet Pimpernel” for the way he risked his own life to save Jews threatened with death by the Nazis.

Frank Foley, has shown his own courage and has saved thousands of lives with the position he was givin in(British Passport Control Office). He was willing to scarfice his own life in order to save others. He was ready to die for those people who were helpless throgh this crisis.

Connection with the present

Israel is the holiest place for the Jews but Iran doesn't agree that they should have Israel as their home. They want the territory to be their own land and not the Jews. Because it's what they believe. They also don't like their religion and want to declare war against them. Iran is ready to sent missiles and have a nulclear war against them.
