Thousands of people were pouring out of this train. The train had no end. I couldnt see the end of it.

It was impossible to find anybody. -Renee Firestone 1944 Hitler takes over Hungary and begins deporting 12,000 Hungarian Jews each day to Auschwitz where they are murdered. I looked up to the sky, I say the stars, and I counted each star one of my family. -Hellmuth Szpycer
1945 Hitler is defeated and World War II ends in Europe. The Holocaust is over and the death camps are emptied. Many survivors are placed in displaced persons camps until they find a country willing to accept them. Since I was the youngest, I got out first, and it was a beautiful day. Birds were chirping and the flowers were out. And to walk alone and not to have to walk in line with guards around us, it was some glorious feeling. -Erika Jacoby 1946 An International Military Tribunal is created by Britian, France, the United States, and the Soviet Union. At Nuremberg, Nazi leaders are tried for war crimes and crimes against humanity. 1947 The United Nations establishes a Jewish homeland in British- controlled Palestine, which becomes the State of Israel in 1948. The pain is real. The pain is not a fiction. I wish it were a fiction. I wish somebody would come back and give me back my family and say, Hey, it never happened. Here they are. But they arent here. -Solomom Wieder
Summary of Holocaust The holocaust was truly a tragic event. Over 11 millions lives were lost, from the cruel hand of Adolf Hitler. This was the result of the Nazis plan to get rid of all the Jews. The nazis decided that the most effienct way to get rid of the Jews would be to set up camps to kill off the Jews. Jewish children could not go to school with other German children. “Jewish businesses were forced to close, Jewish temples were burned and vandalized.”
Letters Adolf Hitler, quoted in "Hitler," by Joachim Fest, Vintage Books Edition, 1974, p. 679-680:Nature is cruel; therefore we are also entitled to be cruel.

Off. , 1949-1953, Vol XIII, p. 131:Today I will once more be a prophet: If the international Jewish financiers in and outside Europe should succeed in plunging the nations once more into a world war, then the result will not be the bolshevization of the earth, and thus the victory of Jewry, but the annihilation of the Jewish race in Europe!
Dear Mr. Corren, letter This letter is to testify to the loyalty tot he United States of an alien, Mr. Curt Valentin, now in this country.
