The Children

The children of the Holocaust were kids that had been stripped from their homes, and torn away from their family. They were helpless victims of the Nazi Regime. They had no choice but to do what they were told, and if not...then they were killed. Over about 1.1 million kids under the age of 16 were shot and killed.. sometimes, kids were thrown into the air and used as target practice. When the children were fed, they got very little rations of food. The Children of the holocaust faced starvation, deadly illness, and brutal labor until they got to the gas chambers. When the children got to the concentration camps, like Auschwitz they were shot upon arrival. Children of the holocaust were lucky to survive. The children were chosen using Dr. Mengele's He would hVe draw a line on the wall. Then he would have the kids line up and if the child's head didn't reach the line then he would send them to the gas chambers.
