Transcript

  • 1. Death Camps
  • 2. • The Nazi party, under Adolf Hitler, expanded the camps as designated areas where they could hold their prisoners to initially work and be out of the society. • The Germans would have some of them work in factories, to support the war. • They would also do medical tests on them by infecting them with diseases and by testing experimental medications. • However, many were killed by different methods because the Nazis felt that they were weak.
  • 3. • Concentration Camps • Camps that were developed only to hold and have people work • Death Camps • Camps that were specifically set up to kill people
  • 4. • Because of the concentration camps, millions of people were killed • Some people say that 9 million Jews lived in Europe before the Holocaust, and approximately two-thirds of them were killed during this time.
  • 5. The following figures from Lucy Dawidowicz show the annihilation of the Jewish population of Europe by (pre-war) country:[261] Country Estimated Pre-War Jewish population Estimated killed Percent killed Poland 3,300,000 3,000,000 90 Baltic countries 253,000 228,000 90 Germany and Austria 240,000 210,000 90 Bohemia and Moravia 90,000 80,000 89 Slovakia 90,000 75,000 83 Greece 70,000 54,000 77 Netherlands 140,000 105,000 75 Hungary 650,000 450,000 70 Byelorussian SSR 375,000 245,000 65 Ukrainian SSR 1,500,000 900,000 60 Belgium 65,000 40,000 60 Yugoslavia 43,000 26,000 60 Romania 600,000 300,000 50 Norway 2,173 890 41 France 350,000 90,000 26 Bulgaria 64,000 14,000 22 Italy 40,000 8,000 20 Luxembourg 5,000 1,000 20 Russian SFSR 975,000 107,000 11 Denmark 8,000 52 <1 Total 8,861,800 5,933,900 67
  • 6. • During the Holocaust, there were about 23 main concentration camps producing about 900 sub camps. • Some of the concentration camps were Auschwitz, Buchenwald, Dachau, and Treblinka. • Today, researchers have found two-thousand concentration camps across Europe.

  • 8. • After the fall of Hitler’s Nazi party, the Allied Powers started to take a lead in WWII. The bombing of Hiroshima ended WWII. Then, the Allied Powers boldly stepped into concentration camps. They realized what Germany was doing and put an end to it by letting any soul who was not dead escape the camps.
  • 9. • Today, some Germans boldly say that the Jewish people were lying about the camps and that they were not real. However, Jewish and other researchers have multiple strong pieces of evidence that support the fact that they did exist. For example, Auschwitz has a wall of shoes and shirts around their camp from the people who perished on the soil. This is evidence that the camps existed and killed people.
