The Holocaust

1933, The beginning

1933 September First the Jewish people were being invaded by the Nazis in a Polish town called Wielun.

The Holocaust lasted for three years and during that time six million Jews were put in gas chambers. The four major concentration camps were Auschwitz-Birkenau, Belzec, Bergen-Belsen, and Buchenwald. The first two were in Poland and the last two were in Germany. Auschwitz-Birkenau- Forced Labor, Belzec- Annihilation, Bergen-Belsen- Holding Center, and Buchenwald- also another Forced Labor. They also would be put against the wall and shot. Polish people were sent to different location with other people that lived in the Soviet Union and forced to live with each other. The Nazis called them Ghettos. The people that owned the houses had to live with random strangers that invaded their houses.

What could the Jewish people do?

What could the Jews do to fight back? The Jews were weak, all though people couldn’t fight back they could have tried. People weren’t strong enough, there were not any weapons, the Nazis took them away from the Jews so they couldn’t fight them. They Nazis had guns but the Jews didn’t, the war was unfair. There were eight million Nazis and six million Jews, There was no way the Jews could have won but they could have asked other countries to help. One man aged forty-five said he was to old to move or do any work so the Nazis shot him because he was worthless, they didn’t need him.
