Why was the Holocaust such a tragic event?
The Nazis had many types of camps and they each had one purpose. They had concentration camps where inmates were forced in labor, brutal mistreatment, hunger, disease, and random executions. They had work camps where the Nazis would force the inmates to work. They had transit camps where they would hold inmates temporarily then move them to another camp. Then they had extermination camps where they would execute inmates. Although many people were mistreated in the Nazis camps some of the camps were invaded by others who freed the inmates.
The Nazis had many symbols and directions to do when said symbols were seen. The Jewish people had a star symbol. Black people were normally shot on sight. Polish people were separated with a symbol with a “P” on it. Although the Nazis segregated everyone most family members have the same or similar attributes therefore they got the same symbols and went to the same places.
