Transcript of The Holocaust

Title: Before The Holocaust: Historical Anti-Semitism & Hitler's Rise To Power
Genre: Informational Text
Purpose: To talk about life before Hitler took over everything and made life miserable in the Concentration Camps for Jews
Perspective: Hitler did horrible and unthinkable things to the innocent people. He thought it was right, but it wasn't. In his perspective it was good, to us it's horrible.
Message: To let people know that it wasn't a good time in history and it wasn't good for those people, but it felt good to Hitler. People need to know what these innocent people had to go through.

It taught us about everything before Hitler, with Hitler, and after Hitler.


Anne Frank: The diary of a young girl
Title: The diary of a young girl
Author: Anne Frank
Genre: Autobiography
Source: Primary
Perspective: The perspective is Anne Franks, she shows how she loves her dad very much, admires her sweet and intelligent sister and how she did not have a motherly bond (she did not like her mom). It shows how being in an attic hiding from the nazis that at any noise could scare them. Anne tells about how boring being in an attic quiet every day and how she falls in love with the son of the other family in hiding with them
Purpose: I think that the purpose of Anne Frank writing this diary was to keep herself entertained and to be able to spill all her feelings somewhere private.
Message: There is not really a message, but that you should give thanks for your life because Anne Frank had to hide for 2 years and 2 months being very quiet in an attic and the getting caught and going to a concentration camp and dying at 16 at a camp from typhus.

The allied forces were able to liberate over 80,000 prisoners, but many died after their release from diseases they had and from the malnutrition.
6 million Jews were killed in total during the Holocaust and many died after.
The Holocaust was a systematic persecution and murder of about 6 million innocent Jews by the Nazis and there collaborators.
The word Holocaust comes from greek origin "sacrifice by fire". The Nazis and Hitler believed that the Jews deemed "inferior", were an alien threat to the so called German racial community.

Perspective: The perspective was of the speaker and he explains how the Nazis imposed laws against the Jews. Taking there citizenship and really excluding them from the rest of the community (germans).
Purpose: The purpose of this was that the Nazis really wanted to get rid of the Jews from Germany and the only way to do this was to put all these laws against them which then made them want to move and leave the country.
Message: The message the Nazis were sending was telling the Jews that they needed to leave Germany and if they didn't things would get worse for them. This video is to inform us how people can be so cruel as to kick people out of their own country.
