The Holocaust, what is the true depth of the word? As sad as it may seem, it affected the lives of millions because of the hate inside of one certain group of people, the Nazi's. Dehumanization is to deprive human qualities such as individuality or compassion. Victims of the Holocaust went through dehumanization simply to make the killing of others psychologically easy for the Nazi's. Many victims of the Holocaust suffered from various experiments which eventually led to the death. Some of the experiments were things such as: sun lamp, internal irrigation, hot bath, warming by body heat, freezing/hypothermia etc. The internal irrigation system is when, "the frozen victims would have water heated to a near blistering temperature forcefully irrigated into the stomach, bladder, and intestines." (Medical Experiments of the Holocaust and Nazi Medicine) Why would anybody perform such horrible things on another human being? That is a question that many people still can't answer. It is much more complex than it may seem. The Nazi's wanted to make the victims do so many degrading things that they would appear to be subhuman. Killing somebody less than human was more justifiable to the Nazi's. One experiment that was conducted on a pair of Russians describes the torture that many victims went through. The experiment of the twins is graphically described, "the next part of the examination consisted of tubes being forced through their noses and into their lungs. They were then ventilated with a gas which caused them to cough so severely that they had to be restrained. The sputum from the lungs was collected for examination." (Medical Experiments of the Holocaust and Nazi Medicine) These sort of things went on throughout the camps and the victims were just being used as lab rats. The living conditions within camps played a major role in the deterioration of the victims. On September 1, 1939, when Germany
The Holocaust: Germany’s Way of Expressing Hatred
From the time period of 1933 to 1945, races were put through times of despair, torture, and misery. The holocaust was difficult to many, with little survivors and still affects people’s daily lives today. All of the agony was caused because of one man’s belief, that had the ability to influence an entire country. The holocaust was a genocide that was solely based off of hatred found in Germany.
Propaganda played a role in brainwashing citizens….
The Holocaust first started in Germany in 1933, when Jew and other ethnicities began to lose their right. It began with exclusion from school, certain jobs and other public roles. Then Jews had to wear the Star of David so be identified, and soon after a mandatory curfew was imposed. Not long after, Jews were forced into ghettos and then into concentration camps (“The Holocaust” par. 12-18). Heinz Skyte, a German survivor of the Holocaust, recalls what happened when the Nazis first came to power:….

then the holocaust has been remembered
of the Holocaust
The Holocaust was one of the most horrible and dreaded events in history. Millions of Jews were killed, leaving many families devastated and hopeless. With the goal of racial purity, Adolf Hitler- along with many other Germans believed the Jews caused the defeat of their country, and led the Nazis to the elimination of Jews. For this reason, “Even in the early 21st century, the legacy of the Holocaust endures…as many as 12,000 Jews were killed every day” (The Holocaust). Later….

The Nazi's deliberately chose dehumansing ways to kill, and used torture, to intimidate and terrify the Jews.
Following the "Great War," Adolph Hitler blamed Germany's downfalls on the country's Jewish population causing discrimination, violent action, and a mass exodus of European Jews.
Six million people died just because of their religion compared it to 911, when thousands of people died due to a terrorist attack.
The Holocaust was the systematic, bureaucratic….
When people hear the word genocide, the first thing that comes to their mind is probably The Holocaust; unfortunately there are many more genocides that not many people know about. The Holocaust was a tragic genocide in which six million Jews were murdered by Adolf Hitler and his Nazi soldiers, and for what reason? Sadly there is no valid reason other than the fact that they were just Jewish and Hitler didn’t like that. Genocide is when a large group of people are murdered because of their beliefs….
Living It Again
To educate millions of people about the dangers of hatred and the importance of preventing genocide, the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum was founded in Washington D.C. in1993. It is ironic how the museum is located among monuments and museums that symbolize freedom on the National Mall. The “Holocaust which occurred elsewhere but which is of universal significance” (Ruffins) was responsible for the deaths of millions of Jews in Europe. The mission of the museum is “is….
Affects of the Holocaust
Our world has gone through many wars. But there is one war, in particular, that has changed the lives of thousands of people: World War II. This war brought out the worst in many, especially Adolf Hitler; who believed the war was a success because of how many Jews he had massacred. Hitler 's goal was to make a pure race of people mainly with blonde hair and blue eyes; everyone else, the Jewish race, sick people, and disabled people were to be removed, erased, executed….
Hitler and the Holocaust
The Holocaust is a tragic event that happened not so long ago, but many people have already forgotten about this horrible event. Today, there are only few survivors left to tell their own personal stories of the Holocaust and what they had to go through. But what will happen when there 's no survivor left to tell his/her story or speak of the truth that the Holocaust really did happen? Who will speak out for them and millions of Jews who had died in the Holocaust? Who will help….
always be Hitler and his cruelty toward Jews. What is strange about this answer is the fact that the majority of people do not realize what actually occurred in Europe during this time. To most people, the Holocaust was an event where many Jews were killed by Nazis. (www.ushmm.org) In fact, the Holocaust was a tragic point in history which many believe never occurred, or do not realize the suffering behind the widespread destruction. The pain and conditions experienced by the victims is unimaginable by….
