How did the Holocaust affect the world?
Transcript of How did the Holocaust affect the world?
The Holocaust destroyed society. This devastating Genocide killed millions of people, left thousands in physical or mental pain, and affected todays society in such a negative way. In total about eleven million people were killed unfairly and those who luckily got away will be traumatized for the rest of their lives having to face todays society. These survivors still face the long term affects from the holocaust.
In the aftermath of the Holocaust, the civilized world was shocked to see photographs of unimaginable horror; skeletons of victims stacked in piles of hundreds and thousands, living skeletons describing unspeakable brutality and atrocity, and searching for the truth as to what would permit this to occur without intervention
: The Holocaust wiped out many of the most educated and productive people in western Russia,” said co-author James A. Robinson, the David Florence Professor of Government at Harvard. “It was a major shock to the social structure of the invaded regions, dramatically reducing the size of the Russian middle class.
11 million people were murdered simply because they were considered ÏundesirableÓ by certain people who had the power to control their lives (5, 284). How could one group of people be powerful enough to cause so much damage to so many people?
Nevertheless, the nearly 69,000 death certificates available afford researchers the opportunity to see exactly what was killing registered prisoners. It is now known on the basis of these certificates that very few prisoners died from typhus.  They show that only 2060 of the 68,864 deaths were from typhus. While typhus can be lethal, it need not necessarily be so.
How did the Holocaust affect the world?
They shot after us. They shot . . . they keep on shooting, but the bullet didn't hit me. When I didn't hear anymore the train, I got up. And the first thing I did, I took off my star, and I promised myself never again will I ever wear a star. I went first to look after my sister and brother and found them dead. And I found many corpses . . . many corpses. From that train one of my friends survived, too. She lives in New York. We were two people who survived that train, but many people jumped. Well, after that I survived under an assumed name, and I was caught to work in Germany as a Polish girl. And I worked on a farm, on a German farm, under a false name . . .pretended that I was Catholic and escaped until the end of the war.
: The Jewish population in Germany was 0.9 per-cent of the total population. How could such a tiny minority successfully oppose or fight back against the size and depth of the Nazi machine?
In 1945, as advancing Allied troops began discovering these camps, they found the results of these policies: hundreds of thousands of starving and sick prisoners locked in with thousands of dead bodies. They encountered evidence of gas chambers and high-volume crematoriums, as well as thousands of mass graves, documentation of awful medical experimentation, and much more. The Nazis killed more than 10 million people in this manner, including 6 million Jews. (This entry is Part 18 of a weekly 20-part retrospective of World War II):
tragic events that occurred during world war two and the holocaust were not only horrific but also morally wrong. The Jewish culture was targeted for mass genocide, by the hand of a mad-man bent on world domination, and the only way to prevent another incident like this from happening again, is to thoroughly educate the public. The actions and events that Hitler and his followers proposed not only helped the world realize the extent of his destruction but also how horrible it would be if the events were to happen again. The aftermath of the war and holocaust left half of Europe in ruins, and more than six million Jews, Homosexuals, Gypsies, and Africans dead, not including the numbers of soldiers from all sides who died in the battlefield.
“Most survivors alive today were children during World War II and the current findings call for special attention to the care of these survivors,” said co-author Marinus Van IJzendoorn of Leiden University in the Netherlands. “As they approach old age, they face new challenges, including retirement, declining health and losing a spouse, and this may reactivate their extreme early stresses.”
After 1939 about 6 million Jews were killed in the countries that Hitler controlled. But Jewish people were not the only ones murdered by the Nazis. Gypsies , homosexuals, mentally and physically disabled people and others who were against Hitler were killed in the Holocaust.
