The Final Solution
Transcript of The Final Solution
Nazis New Method
The Nazis rounded up Jews, Gypsies, and Slavs and shot them then piled them into mass graves. They were also forced into trucks and killed by the poisonous carbon monoxide which was pumped out of pipes.
How did it start?
On January 20, 1942 Nazi leaders met at the Wannsee Conference in Berlin to discuss ways of exterminating the Jews.
The Allies came across concentration camp prisoners while moving throughout Europe. German forces finally surrendered known as Victory Day.
The Final Solution was the Nazis way of gassing, shooting, starving and forcing death upon the Jews, Slavs, Gypsies, and even the disabled.
What is the Final Solution?
The Final Solution was the Nazis plan to exterminate the Jewish people as well as the Gypsies, Slavs and undesirables.
At the Wannsee Conference Nazis came up with the idea of bringing the Jews to concentration camps.
Over 200,000 Jews were imprisoned and held in harsh conditions. They worked 12 hour shifts as slave laborers until they died of exhaustion, malnutrition, or disease.
The Jews were housed in barracks which were meant to only hold 50 people but held more than 150.
The Nazis believed that a more efficient way of killing the Jews was to add extermination facilities in concentration cramps.
camps which served as
camps were considered
death factories. The gas
chambers were built to kill
2,000 people at a time.
