Transcript of The Holocaust

5.04 Assignment
Directions: Imagine yourself as one of the children in the liberation photograph. Complete the three paragraphs as a first-person narrative from his or her point of view.

Paragraph 1: Why were you persecuted?
Paragraph 2: Where did you go? Describe your experience at the camp. What happened to your family? How did the United States respond to your experience?
Paragraph 3: What will your future bring? Predict what you think will happen to you now that you have been liberated. How has the world changed since your imprisonment? How have you changed?
In your narrative, be sure to:

recount historical facts accurately
use course terms when appropriate
cite any outside sources
Directions:
I was persecuted because I am Jewish. My family was hoping to already be gone by the time that Hitlers army reached us. We were already packed up and had gotten news from other family members that they had found a hiding place that we could all stay at. We were literally fixing to walk out the house when the army started smashing windows. They saw us with our bags and started beating our father. We were put on separate buses.
Paragraph 1: Why were you persecuted?
I think that my future will bring gratefulness. I am grateful to wake up everyday alive and well. The good news is, my sister is still alive and well. We met back at our house by coincidence. I think that we will still be cautious for however many years or so, and save up just in case something bad happens again. I have become more cautious when it comes to wartime. I tend to hide important things in packages for a quick getaway and I have realized that I have became more attached to my sister now than ever before.
Paragraph 3: What will your future bring? Predict what you think will happen to you now that you have been liberated. How has the world changed since your imprisonment? How have you changed?
In your narrative, be sure to:
I received a lot of the information that I used in this prezi from the lesson in FLVS U.S. History lesson 5.04. This is my work. Please don't copy and paste my work just to call it your own. Plagiarism is illegal and you will get fined. Thank you for Watching.

Credits:
I am a 17 year old girl named:
Lillian Hemlauch...
I live in Germany during the year 1940.

Character:
I was persecuted because I am Jewish. My family was hoping to already be gone by the time that Hitlers army reached us. We were already packed up and had gotten news from other family members that they had found a hiding place that we could all stay at. We were literally fixing to walk out the house when the army started smashing windows. They saw us with our bags and started beating our father. We were put on separate buses.
I was transported to the Dachau concentration camp. At first I was crammed into a dark muggy room. I was thrown onto a group of bodies. I felt around but I couldn't tell if they were dead or not. I think I feel asleep or maybe I blacked out. All I know is that a few hours later I was brought back to life with light blazing into the room and blinding me. I was off to work with many other prisoners. I looked for my family every time I was brought outside. I called for them in the darkness, but I never found them. I was fed crumbs of bread every three days. I watched people die alive from starvation and being beaten and pushed to hard during labor.
I think that my future will bring gratefulness. I am grateful to wake up everyday alive and well. The good news is, my sister is still alive and well. We met back at our house by coincidence.
