Bystanders In The Holocaust
Transcript of Bystanders In The Holocaust
Images from Shutterstock.com The Bystanders THE HOLOCAUST -> Who were Bystanders? Bystanders were a group of people that were known for their name because they stood there and watched all the disaster and misery happen around them. Some of these bystanders would stand in the streets and not help anyone at all because they were ignorant, helpless, and fearful. Others chose to ignore what was happening around them; as if nothing was going on. Bystanders weren't only known as people though, they were also known as institutions and nations. Some of these bystanders eventually started to try and help. Some became rescuers and some became victims. If a bystander tried to speak up against the actions of the Nazis, They could put their whole family in danger with either the same, or worst, sentence to this crime. There were no weapons to help them defend themselves and no where to go and hide which is why most bystanders were terrified. The Nazis did all they could to control the resistance and rescues. Here is a video to describe life during the holocaust for the bystanders and jews. Thanks For Watching!!

If the bystanders who wanted to do something to change the ways and actions that were going on during the holocaust, but were too terrified to do something about it, were still alive today, they would probably think back and say that they wish they should've at least tried to change the lives of some of the people in danger.
