07.06 Genocide: Assessment
Transcript of 07.06 Genocide: Assessment
Adolf Hitler was a German leader born on April 20th, 1889. He is most responsible for the Holocaust due to many death of Jews he was responsible for.
This image displays a Gestapo troop which was a secret Nazi police force created by Hitler. Their job was to take Jews to concentration camps were they would be suffering.
When Jews were found, they were brought to concentration camps. In concentration camps, Jews would be imprisoned, overworked, tortured, starved and killed.
In order for Jews not to be found by the Gestapo, some would hide in the closets, or secret rooms in someone's house. If people were caught for helping Jews, they would be killed.
On December 7th, 1941 Hitler issued the Night and Fog Decree. This was a secret order stating that if anyone was suspected of helping out Jews, they would be sentenced to death.
Summary: Impact on Jews
The Holocaust was a tragic event that resulted in the death of about 6 million Jews. Those who survived probably still get haunted by the experience they went through. They also may have lost many family members. Plus, many Jews struggled with finding family members due to identity loss. Another negative impact of the Holocaust was that the Yiddish language greatly decline. In order to recognize the Yiddish culture, there was what was known as the Yiddish Renaissance. Although the Holocaust had many negative impacts, there is a positive. Now through this tragic event in history, we know what happens when someone is given too much power, and that we should never discriminate people due to their race.
Call To Action
In order to prevent genocides in the future we need to be aware and stay informed of what is going on in the world. We also need to accept people for who they are no matter their, race, culture or beliefs.
