The Holocaust was such a tragic event in world history because the cruelty toward Jewish People, different type of camps that were used the the Holocaust, segregation during the Holocaust, and the cruel leadership in Germany.

Jewish People

During the Holocaust the Jews lost their citizenship and their right to vote. The Nazis also forced people to boycott any business owned by a Jew. Then during the Holocaust as a whole, between five and six million Jews were executed. Although the Nazis were cruel to the Jews some of the Jewish people were able to flee to another country.

Camps

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.


Segregation

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.

Cruel Leadership

The Nazi’s had a leader who would never take responsibility for his failure, Hitler would always try to find someone else to blame. Also instead of taking responsibility he would rather kill himself instead of attempting to to help his country get out of their hardship. Although Hitler was supposedly a man of god but, we can prove that wrong because of his life choices.

Conclusion

In conclusion the Holocaust was such a tragic event in world history because the cruelty toward Jewish People, different type of camps that were used the the Holocaust, segregation during the Holocaust, and the cruel leadership in Germany.
