7.06 The World at War and the Fires Between: Genocide
Transcript of 7.06 The World at War and the Fires Between: Genocide
All the people who were taken to the death camps were put in striped clothing and tattooed so they could be identified. They were trapped inside of chicken wire, so no one would escape.
This is where they were kept, many of them were packed together in one room. Many of them became malnourished to the point where you could see bone.
This is one of the concentration camps that were used to put Jews, Romas, and others targeted by the Nazis in. These camps were torturous; making the people work on long and arduous tasks, that was difficult for anyone, people became weak, and when they did, they were sent off to the gas chambers, where they were killed.
This is one of the many pictures of the destruction during Kristallnacht. It shows a man cleaning up the streets from where the Nazis had ransacked the town.

One of the Holocaust survivors, "Shep" Zitler had survived the horrible death camps. But in fact, he did not go to the death camps like many were ordered to, although, he still had to work hard and laboriously in unfair conditions, but he still made it out alive. His family wasn't there when he left, because they were taken, as well, but he made the best life he could and had a wife and son. Shep died December of 2009.
The most obvious effect of the Holocaust on the Jewish people was that many of them were killed in the most horrible way, they weren't ever allowed to see their families again, and some kids were left alone because their parents had been taken. The second effect is that many of the people that did survive had emotional scarring where they saw what had happened and won't be able to forget about it. The third effect is that some of them developed colon cancer from the harsh conditions of no food and a high level of stress from working in the camps. Lastly, a large portion of the Yiddish culture was lost because of the Holocaust, an entire culture wiped off the Earth.
If we want to prevent future genocides we have to be ready to step in for other countries, we have to help them out when they are in need of help and don't have anyone else. Second we have try and make peace with everyone around us, if there isn't peace that will cause someone to be upset, and another war will erupt. Finally, we have to make Genocide prevention one of the core values of America, and possibly even the world. No one wants to repeat what has happened ever again.
