7.06 Genocide (The Holocaust)
Transcript of 7.06 Genocide (The Holocaust)
Call to Action
Unfortunately genocides after the holocaust continued. Even now we never know if there is a genocide going on. No one knew of the genocide that was happening in Germany until people began to investigate. To prevent any genocide from happening we must be informed with the things that go on in this world. Everyone needs to be aware of the current events. People must treat others like equal and not go against their religion or race. People are people, and they should be respected. There should also be a law forbidding anyone who goes against this and sentencing them time in prison. We cannot let what happened in the Holocaust ever happen again.
This man was the leader of the Holocaust. He was the one who created many horrors for the Jews, Slavs, Romas, Homosexuals, etc. The leader of the Nazis, Adolf Hitler, was an anti-Semitist and blamed the Jews for Germany's problems.
On November 9, 1938, The Nazis began to physically dismantle Jewish businesses and synagogues throughout Germany. The Nazis attacked Jewish people in their homes and sent about 30,000 Jews to concentration camps. This night came to be called Kristallnacht, which means "NIght of Broken Glass."
Many of the prisoners died in concentration camps through deliberate maltreatment, disease, starvation, and overwork, or were executed as unfit for labor. At the death camps, the Nazis constructed gas chambers that looked like showers and crammed about 2,000 prisoners into a chamber, shut the door, and poured poison gas through the openings, killing them. Then they would burn the bodies in crematoriums.
During the Holocaust in 1939, the Nazis began a program that murdered the physically and mentally challenged. The Nazis experimented with torture devices and the use of gas chambers on this group.
Natch und Nebel (Night and Fog)
Natch und Nebel was a directive of Adolf hitler on 7 December 1941 that was originally intended to winnow out all political activists and resistance 'helpers', "anyone endangering German security" throughout Nazi Germany's occupied territories. If these people were suspected of helping Jews, they were sentenced to death.
Many horrors took place during the Holocaust. Approximately 11 million people known as Jews, Slavs, and prisoners were killed and most were tortured. It was a very dark period in history and a very saddening one. The impact it had on the Jewish population was great. Many of their kin were killed off and tortured; this caused their population size to decrease. Not only did it affect them this way, but the scars kept in their memories. The surviving ones had to live every day with the haunting memories of those horrible, heart-wrenching days they faced. They would never be the same.
