Transcript of 07.06 Genocide: Assessment

November 9, 1938, formally known as Kristallnacht, the Nazis attacked the Jews and their businesses and sent approximately 30,000 Jews to concentration camps. Jews were confined, forced to work, and killed at these hellish camps.
The Final Solution was the Nazi Policy that every Jewish man, woman, and child would be murdered if they were on German land. The total death toll of WW2 and the Holocaust is around 11 million, more than half being Jews.
07.06 Genocide: Assessment

The vulnerable state that Germany was left in after WW1 allowed for the Nazi takeover. Hitler and his Nazis gained support when he helped end the Great Depression in Germany.
It was Hitler's ideals that Jews and non-Germans were an inferior race. He led the world into WW2 and the Holocaust; and is solely responsible for the murder of millions of people.
The Holocaust is one of history's most tragic
occurrences; the second largest genocide, second only to the Great Leap Forward. The Jewish population suffered a six million large loss after the Holocaust. Those who did survive suffered medical effects from the concentration camps and malnourishment, not to mention the psychological damage from living in fear of ending up like so many of their own people. However, the Holocaust taught the world a hard-earned lesson in acceptance and equality. The world also gained an unfortunate awareness on how evil and corrupt humans can be. Because of the Holocaust and genocides like it, today we are more adept and willing to prevent such tragedies from occurring again.
Though we have not yet and may never completely distinguish acts of such wrongful hate and murder, there are many groups and organizations that fight against such monstrosities. The United Nations and the International Red Cross are widely known as advocates of peace and equality and are always in need of more volunteers to aid those truly in need. There are a myriad of ways that anyone can pitch in this cause and you don't have to dedicate your life to volunteer work to do it. There are always commercials on T.V. advertising international volunteer organizations, and just donating a few bucks or even less a day can and do save lives: that's not just a line. Even simpler and extremely important, genocides and massacres occur because of an ignorant hatred and a lack of humanity. If you can find it in your heart to accept everyone despite race, religion, ethnicity, sexual preference, etc. and judge solely on what's inside then you are helping to achieve the goal of world acceptance and peace. Lastly, I urge you to bravely stand up for your beliefs and fight for equality for everyone, even the little guys, and even when you're standing alone.
Auschwitz, located in Poland, was the largest concentration camp of the Holocaust. It is estimated that 1.2 million people were forced into labor and then killed here.
