Transcript

  • 1. Resisters and Rescuers<br />
  • 2. The governments of most countries did very little to rescue victims. <br />At the Evian Conference in 1938 representatives from 32 countries met in Evian, France to discuss the issue of Jews seeking asylum- they decided not to take in Jewish refugees. <br />
  • 3. In May 1939, the SS St. Louis left Germany for Cuba carrying more than 900 Jews. <br />Immigration laws changed and they were forced to go back to Germany. <br />Of the 900 passengers, fewer than 300 survived<br />
  • 4. There were some governments, organizations, and individuals who reached out to victims and saved many lives. <br />Anyone caught would have faced the same fate as the Jews. <br />
  • 5. Some refused to be silenced <br />Hans and Sophie Scholl were college students who created the White Rose. <br />
  • 6. Members of the White Rose secretly distributed anti-Nazi leaflets. <br />Since Hitler had control over all forms of communication, it was one of the few ways to speak out.<br />
  • 7. On February 18, 1943, a custodian saw Sophie and Hans spreading anti-Nazi leaflets in a university hallway.<br />On February 24, 1943, Sophie, Hans, and another member were killed by guillotine for their crime.<br />
  • 8. Rescuers <br />British embassy worker Frank Foley saved 10,000 Jewish lives by issuing visas for countries under British rule to Jews. <br />
  • 9. Rescuers<br />Oskar Schindler was a member of the Nazi party.<br />He persuaded them that he needed Jews for his factory in Poland. <br />He saved the lives of 1,200 Jews.<br />
  • 10. Rescuers<br />Irena Sendler smuggled 2,500 Jewish children out of the Warsaw ghetto in body bags so the Nazis would think they were corpses.<br />When Jewish children changed their names, she buried their names in a jar. <br />
  • 11. Rescuers<br />After Kristallnacht a group of British Jews, Quakers, and other Christians created kindertransport to save Jewish children. <br />Half went to institutions and the other half to foster homes.<br />Many never saw their parents again<br />10,000 children were saved<br />
  • 12. Rescuers<br />Danish fishermen saved 99 percent of the Danish Jews by ferrying them to Sweden.<br />
  • 13. Rescuers<br />Almost all 600 Albanian Jews survived because Albanian officials forged their documents<br />Christian and Muslim Albanians also hid Jews<br />
  • 14. Rescuers <br />Imagine how many more Jews would have died if these individuals, groups, and countries had not helped.<br />Imagine how many more Jews would have survived if more people would have helped. <br />
