  • The Nazi’s ended their reign in 1945 when they were defeated by the Allied powersIt is estimated that 11 million people were killed during the Holocaust. Six million of these were Jews. The Nazis killed approximately two-thirds of all Jews living in Europe (Rosenberg, 2010). An estimated 1.1 million children were murdered in the Holocaust. In addition to Jews, the Nazis targeted Gypsies, homosexuals, Jehovah's Witnesses, and the disabled for persecution. Anyone who resisted the Nazis was sent to forced labor or murdered.
  • Ashes Of Auschwitz

    1. 1. Ashes of Auschwitz A kaleidoscopic perspective<br />By<br />JoEllen Teipen-Holbrook<br />&<br />Macy Brown<br />
    2. 2. Kaleidoscope: A complex pattern of constantly changing colors and shapes<br />
    3. 3. The film should take a more kaleidoscopic approach not focusing on ONE character, but encompassing more intensively the lives emotions, prejudices, and social circumstances of many different characters including perhaps one or two more predominant NAZI characters. Because the events surrounding the Holocaust are so complex and during the event changed drastically with different events it is necessary that we provide a vision that is similar to manner of the Holocaust<br />
    4. 4. Why Hitler? <br />World war one was over and it left Germany in a very bad economical status. Hitler started to work his way through political venues spreading his message and propaganda. The message was clear and acceptable to many- the misfits and undesirable citizens were destroying Germany and must be eliminated in order to purify and cause Germany to rise again.<br />
    5. 5. Hitler is the savior of Germany?<br />Germany 1933: January 30th Hitler becomes chancellor of Germany. February 28 a series of emergency decrees declared – the government suspends many freedoms including press, speech and assembly. <br />March 20 Dachau established (originally a concentration camp for opponents of the Nazis)<br />April 1 Government organized boycott on Jewish stores <br />April 26 Formation of the Gestapo (Geheime Staatspolizei)<br />June Hitler outlaws all political parties other than the Nazi Party<br />September Jews removed from various fields of entertainment including music, art, and literature<br />
    6. 6. Are things in Germany getting better? <br />1934 in Germany:<br />January 26 Germany and Poland sign a ten year non-aggression pact<br />August 3 Hitler assumes powers of both President and Chancellor<br />1936, Germany:<br />August 1 The Olympic Games begin in Nazi Germany<br />October 25 The Rome-Berlin Axis agreement signed<br />
    7. 7. Other Ways this has worked in film.<br />The method that crash uses in its depiction of the lives of seven characters, none of them whom are the main whose lives are drawn together by an instance (in this case the crash) <br />The film successfully brings the characters together while illuminating their personal plights; in order for Schindler’s List to work as a teaching tool the film must take a similar approach <br />
    8. 8. Things start to go up in flames<br />1938, Germany:<br />April 24 Jews must register their property<br />August 17 Jews are required to add "Israel" to their name for men and "Sarah" for women<br />October 5 Jewish passports are marked with the letter "J" for "Jude“<br />November 15 Jewish children expelled from German schools<br />
    9. 9. This then creates a kaleidoscope effect.<br />Each Character being a part of the intricate pattern<br />
    10. 10. And the smoke starts to bellow<br />1939, Germany:<br />May 15 Ravensbrück camp established<br />September 1 Hitler announces that he will invade Poland;Curfew for Jews - 8:00 p.m<br />October 18 Jews must wear a Star of David in Wloclawek, Poland <br />December 5-6 German authorities seize Jewish property <br />
    11. 11. Down fall the ashes<br />1940, Germany:<br />April 27 Himmler orders creation of Auschwitz <br />March 7 "Bloody Tuesday" in the Lodz ghetto<br />July 19 Telephones confiscated from Jews <br />
    12. 12. Our savior turned out to be Satan<br />The term "Holocaust," originally from the Greek word "holokauston" which means "sacrifice by fire," refers to the Nazi's persecution and planned slaughter of the Jewish people (Rosenberg, 2010).<br />
