Medical Experiments/Nazi Doctors

Overveiw of Holocaust

The holocaust was an event in time from 1941-1945. This event caused an estimate of 11 million deaths. More than half of that was Jews which was a group of people whose traditional religion is Judaism and gays. The holocaust started to rise in 1933 when Adolf Hitler came to power. German Nazi began to wage hatred toward Jews. the Holocaust started to an end when the allied forces teamed up to defeat the German Nazi(known as D-Day).


During The Holocaust Nazi doctors performed experiments on 7000 Jews. These experiments were used to test humans ability in crazy conditions. Some was for human military and other was just to prove their theorys.


One thing I was wonder, was how was the Nazi doctors punished. The doctors was put against four crimes these were crimes against peace, war crimes, and crimes against humanity. The trails started in 1945. 185 Nazi doctors was put on trail. of these doctors 24 received death and 35 was consider to be not guilty. Of the remainder 107 eared prison sentences. The last 19 got was let out on other grounds. Some felt that justice wasn't severed. On the national level leader were now able to be put on trails for crimes against there on people.


The Holocaust illustrates the consequences of prejudice, racism and stereotyping on a society. It forces us to examine the responsibilities of citizenship and confront the powerful ramifications of indifference and inaction.
