  3. 3. Anti-Semitism <ul><li>Anti-Semitism is the hatred of Jews. </li></ul><ul><li>Today, there are signs of increasing Anti-Semitism all over the world. </li></ul><ul><li>There are people that think that the Holocaust is a fake. </li></ul><ul><li>The word was first used by Wilhelm Marr a German agitator, who created it to explain the current anti-Jewish campaigns in Europe. </li></ul><ul><li>Anti-Semitism has been around for thousands of years. </li></ul><ul><li>Ancient writings contain much Anti-Semitism. </li></ul><ul><li>The word was coined in 1879 from the Greek words &quot;anti&quot;, meaning &quot;against&quot; and &quot;Semite&quot;, meaning a descendant of Shem. </li></ul><ul><li>The word came into general use in the past hundred years. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Adolf Hitler <ul><li>Born in Braunau am Inn , in Austria, on April 20, 1889. </li></ul><ul><li>He is the third son of Alois and Klara Hitler. </li></ul><ul><li>His father died when he was 12. </li></ul><ul><li>His mother died when he was 18. </li></ul><ul><li>Alois, who was fifty-one when Adolf was born, was extremely keen for his son to do well in life . </li></ul><ul><li>Hitler did extremely well at primary school and it appeared he had a bright academic future in front of him. </li></ul><ul><li>Most noted public speaker. </li></ul><ul><li>Committed suicide, after the war, with his wife. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Dr. Joseph Mengele <ul><li>Born in 1911 in Bavaria. </li></ul><ul><li>He is the eldest of three sons, </li></ul><ul><li>He joined the Nazi party in 1937. </li></ul><ul><li>He volunteered to go to the concentration camp. </li></ul><ul><li>Priority on his research was fanatically pursued research on twins. </li></ul><ul><li>Mengele promoted medical experimentation on inmates, especially dwarfs and twins. </li></ul><ul><li>He is known as the Angel of Death. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Holocaust <ul><li>The proceeds of any sales, as well as Jewish savings, were subjected to special property taxes. </li></ul><ul><li>Several hundred thousand people were able to find refuge in other countries, but a similar number, including many who were old or poor, stayed to face an uncertain fate. </li></ul><ul><li>Holocaust was originally a religious rite in which an offering was entirely consumed by fire. </li></ul><ul><li>Crucial in the determination of being a Jew was the grandparents. </li></ul><ul><li>Since 1945, the most commonly cited figure for the total number of Jews killed has been six million. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Bulgarian Jews <ul><li>All 50, 000 Bulgarian Jews survived. </li></ul><ul><li>The Bulgarian Jews were unreligious, poor, and lived in integrated neighborhoods. </li></ul><ul><li>The history of the Jews in Bulgaria dates to at least as early as 2 nd century CE. </li></ul><ul><li>In 1999, Abraham Foxman, the National Director of the Anti-Defamation League, flew with a delegation to Sophia to meet the Bulgarian Prime Minister. He gave the Prime Minister the first Bulgarian-language copy of a remarkable book, Beyond Hitler's Grasp . </li></ul><ul><li>The story was buried by the Bulgarian communists until their downfall in 1991. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Holocaust Pictures Dissecting Jews is the most horrible thing that happened in the concentration camps in my opinion. I think that Joseph Mengele might have used a dissecting table like this. This, like the other two pictures, look like their right out of a nightmare. The gas chambers are the second most horrible thing that happened in the concentration camp in my opinion. I hope that nothing like the Holocaust happens again.
  9. 9. A Short Story <ul><li>Hundreds of Jews were forced over to the gas chamber. The Nazis held guns to their backs. They reached the gas chamber feeling the most fear that they have ever felt. They got pushed into the chamber. A Nazi soldier closed the door and then locked it. The gas came out. The Jews fell to the ground, scratching the walls. The Nazis watched and smiled. </li></ul>

His teachers liked him a lot. He helped out teachers during school. </li></ul><ul><li>How he looked: </li></ul><ul><li>He had brown hair and green eyes. He barely ever matched his clothes.

Natan Abbe-Real Description <ul><li>Natan, the son of Carola and Israel Abbe, grew up in Lodz, Poland. </li></ul><ul><li>He had two sisters and a younger brother. </li></ul><ul><li>When the Germans occupied Lodz in September 1939, Natan was a fifteen year-old schoolboy. </li></ul><ul><li>Natan was shot to death in late 1940 by a German soldier at the ghetto gate. </li></ul><ul><li>He was 16 when he died. </li></ul>
  12. 12. Poem Work <ul><li>Homesick: He said he wanted no one to give up. It seems like he’d try his best to survive so he can see his home again. It seems like he thinks that he can survive. </li></ul><ul><li>Artist: Anonymous, Page 5 </li></ul><ul><li>The artist probably painted the picture because it was a horrible time in his/her life. </li></ul><ul><li>Artist: Franta Bass, Page 10 </li></ul><ul><li>The artist probably wrote it because the artist missed her home a lot and wanted to return to it. </li></ul>
