Transcript of Copy of Holocaust

Did you know that?
Holocaust survivors
About 10 million people died during the holocaust but about 350,000 survived and some are actually still living today and share their story to others.
Hitler and the Nazis had a hatred of Jews since they believed that the Jews were the reason they lost world war 1- (not true). Also, Hitler and the Nazis thought people should be divided into races, and to them Jews were not considered “human”- they were known “subhuman” After this the Jews became enemies, and Hitler blamed the Jews for problems in Germany. Hitler and the Nazis decided that the solution to this would be to ban the Jews from their society. After 1932, when Hitler and his party won the election, they had come to power.
Wait... why did Hitler and the Nazi's have so much hate towards the Jewish?

What is the Holocaust?
When did this event occur?
The holocaust was an event in history about the manslaughter of mainly the Jews (also Slaves, gypsies, homosexuals, etc.). Adolf Hitler and the Nazis had planned the holocaust in a very systematic way. Hitler believed that the Jews, gypsies, etc. were sub- human and had a huge hatred of them. Because of Hitler’s hatred, these various groups were beaten, murdered, evacuated out of their homes and kicked out of the country.
The holocaust happened when Hitler came to power in Germany which was in 1933.
Around one million children died during the holocaust. There were around eleven million people who died.
Emanuel (Manny) Mandel and William Lowenberg
We are going to be giving you an idea of Emanuel (Manny) Mandel's and William Lowenberg's life during the holocaust.
(then and now)
About Emanuel (Manny) Mandel
About William Lowenberg
Who were the Nazis?
Who was Hitler?
Adolf Hitler was the leader of the Nazi party in 1889-1945
William Lowenberg is a survivor of the Holocaust. He was born on August 14th 1926. William lived in a small town in Germany, named Ochtrup until the age of 9. Hitler wanted no piece of him since he was a Jew, which meant he had to go through many struggles and had to sacrifice his family, and possibly himself too. In 1942 he was arrested with his family. He snuck out to Holland but got taken away to a town named Auschwitz which had several camps. A year later there was an uprising in the ghetto of Warsaw where the other Jews had been taken. They end up in Warsaw where there was bombing, fighting, the buildings were destroyed etc. 300 of them including himself were sent to burn bodies and demolish any German materials (tin, iron, copper, etc.). The groups of them were in boxcars without food. Through this journey William Lowenberg was then liberated to the American Army in 1945. After this he went back to Holland, lived three years in Switzerland and then came to San Francisco. Due to the Holocaust William Lowenberg had lost all his loved ones; his mother, father, sister, brother, grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc. Because of Hitler’s hatred of Jews, about 6 million of them were killed. This is not only the story of one survivor; many, many others had also been through this.
The Nazis were the National Socialist German Workers’ Party – NSDAP. This party was ruled by the Leader named Adolf Hitler
Emanuel Mandel was born in a very religious Jewish family. Together, the family lived in the Port city of Riga, Latvia. A while after Manny was born, his father decided to accept a post as one of the four chief cantors in Budapest. Because of this, the entire family migrated back to Hungary where they lived before 1933. Between all of the conflicts and wars, Budapest was a very important Jewish center in all of Europe.
In the years of 1933-1939 there were many issues. Jewish children could barely play outside because their toy would get stealen since they are “Jewish”. This is the reason why Emanuel’s father didn’t let him have a bike. Since the anti-Jewish laws were passed in 1938, the Jewish people in Hungary were critically harassed. Emanuel’s father had to follow Manny to school because he was scared someone might hurt him by pushing him into traffic or anything just because he was Jewish. It was a terrible thing for children to have to go through at such a young age.
In the years of 1940-1944 the Germans came to Budapest. His mother told Manny that they were being deported. To Emanuel, it sounded like an adventure, but this was serious. Emanuel and his family were put with another group of Jews that the Germans would trade for trucks. They left by train and slept outside at night until they reached Bergen-Belsen camp. It was so muddy that Manny’s shoes fell apart which meant he couldn’t run, and guess what? The only type of “play” they had was running.
After 12 years of "a completely burned sacrifice." The war came to an end in 1944. After the war, Manny and his mother went to Switzerland for many months and later on they immigrated to Palestine in 1945 and 4 years after that, Emanuel moved to the US.
Now it's time to ask YOU guys for YOUR opinion about the Holocaust.
1. Is there ONE thing that you wish didn't happen in the Holocaust?
2. Do you think Hitler was right or wrong for blaming the Jews for issues that happened in Germany?
3. If you could tell Hitler something about what he did, what would you say? (if he wasn't dead right now, what would you say to him)
4. Do you think the Holocaust has an effect on us today?
Thanks for watching and we hope you learnt more about the Holocaust!
(sorry its blurry)
The picture shown above is a part of the Bergen Belsen Death Camp.
How did they know who was Jewish and who wasn't?
Once WWII had begun, the Nazi's ordered the Jews to wear a yellow Star of David on their clothing so that could indicate whether they are Jewish or not.
What happened if you were a Jewish Child?
1. Discrimination and Racism
2. Abuse
After Hitler's act, Jewish were seen as subhuman. In 1938 Jewish kids were banned from Jewish schools but before that, the students were taught to discriminate againt the Jews. This would lead to bullying, discrimination, etc.
Because the German students were taught about racism and discriminating Jews, they would physically and verbally abuse the Jewish kids. Surprisingly, teachers did this too. In fact the teachers made Jewish students stand in front of the class and the teacher would point out their facial features and show that they are different. This would lead to humiliation and mockery.
Luckily, some Jewish children went to Jewish schools but this wasn't that good as it seemed either. The "Hitler Youth" would stand outside of the school and beat up the Jewish boys once they came out of class

Nazis used to trans-
