Trail of Tears & Holocaust
Transcript of Trail of Tears & Holocaust
Walker-5 Why Them? In Germany, the Jews were targeted and blamed for issues by Führer Adolf Hitler in the late 1930's and early 1940's. In America, the Native Americans were targeted by President Andrew Jackson in 1830. The two groups of people were targeted because they were different and they were considered below all the other people. They were being persecuted because of their race or religion. The Jews were blamed for the failure of the economy in Germany and the Indians were targeted because the American farmers wanted their fertile farm land. Moving the People The Native American people were moved to an Indian reserve set up by the government. They were taken away from their homes and forced to move away. The group included the Choctaw, the Cherokee, the Seminole, the Chickasaw, and the Muscogee tribes. The Jewish people were taken from their homes and families and taken to Concentration camps also set up by the government. The people of both groups were starved and diseased with no care from the government. Arrival of Death Many Native Americans died on the trail. They were starved, abused, or killed by the weather or exhaustion. Most of the Indians died from the cold and diseases. Most of the disease was smallpox but the other ones were typhus, measles, influenza, bubonic plague, cholera, malaria and tuberculosis. The soldiers and people would cover the dead with blankets and move on when a person on the trail died. The government didn't care how many people died as long as the people were off the land. Native Americans Arrival of Death Jewish The Jews were crowded into cattle cars and treated like animals. they were shipped off to concentration camps by the Nazi officers. They were starved and worked to death by the S.S. and had medical experiments done on them. They were put into gas chambers and killed by the hundreds and then the bodies were burned or buried in mass graves. The camps were crowded and unsanitary. They were filled with disease, sickness, lice, and death. The main disease was typhus but there was also dysentery, Ricketts, Typhoid, and BeriBeri.
