Rescue and Resistance Mt.Morris

  1. 1. Rescue and Resistance<br />By: Josh Lewandowski, Allan Dick, Chad Reed, Brandon Marshall, Cody Saville, and Jordan Phillips<br />
  2. 2. Liberation of Nazi concentration camps<br />Concentration camps starved and tortured prisoners.<br />Nazis tried to hide the mass murder by burning the concentration camps.<br />Prisoners would be moved on “death marches”<br />The torture of these prisoners was unjust and people started to act out to help them.<br />
  3. 3. Liberation zweiterteil (part two)<br />Once people found out they started to try to shut them down.<br />Soviets started to stop these acts, they liberated many camps such as Auschwitz, Belzec, Sobibor, and Treblinka and all of those were killing centers.<br />The U.S. eventually liberated five different camps.<br />The British also liberated two concentration camps.<br />Preceding info came from http://www.ushmm.org/wlc/article.php?ModuleId=10005131<br />
  4. 4. The United States and the Holocaust<br />The U.S. did not care about the treatment of Jews<br />Due to anti-Semitism, isolationism, economic depression, and xenophobia (prejudice against or fear of foreigners) in the United States. <br />The U.S. State Department also delayed publicizing reports of genocide.<br />President Roosevelt established the War Refugee Board (WRB) in 1944.<br />However by the time of the WRB opening four fifths of the Jews who would die in the Holocaust were already dead.<br />http://www.ushmm.org/wlc/article.php?lang=en&ModuleId=10005182<br />
  5. 5. Jewish Resistance<br />Jewish people formed resistances to rebel against Nazi forces.<br />They normally used hand grenades, molotov cocktails, and small arms.<br />Resistance happened<br />In concentration camps<br />In ghettos<br />In Germany<br />In occupied countries<br />Information on this and the following two slides were obtained from www.ushmm.org and www.wikipedia.org<br />
  6. 6. Warsaw Ghetto Resistance<br />In response to Germans deporting Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto<br />Many Jewish organizations formed a resistance known as the Jewish Combat Organization. <br />The uprising came to a stand still on May 16, 1943<br />
  7. 7. Sobibόr <br />October 1943<br />Jews in the Sobibόr extermination camp, held an uprising<br />11 German Commanding officers were murdered.<br />About half of the inmates escaped.<br />http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:WW2-Holocaust-Poland.PNG<br />
  8. 8. Rescuers<br />Rescuers of the Holocaust were simple people like you and me that stood up against everyone else to take a huge risk in saving mankind.<br />Many rescuers were from all walks of life such as the peasants, nannies, aristocrats and clergy, bakers, doctors, social workers, storekeepers, school children, police officers, diplomats and grandmothers.<br />
  9. 9. Rescuers<br />Rescuers were people from all different nations trying to save the people they loved.<br />They came from places like Ukraine, The Netherlands, Poland, Germany, France, Hungary, Denmark, Italy, Greece, Belgium and many more nations.<br />
  10. 10. Rescuers<br />People that risked their lives to save Jewish people generally didn’t view them as the enemy, but as regular human beings.<br />They also believed that one person could make a difference so they tried to save everyone that they could.<br />
  11. 11. Refugees<br />Between 1933 and 1945, which was the rise and fall of the Nazi’s, more than 340,000 Jews emigrated from Germany and Austria. However, only 100,000 found refuge in other countries.<br />In late 1938, around 125,000 immigrants lined up outside the U.S. borders.<br />They were hoping to get 1 of 27,000 visas left.<br />In 1939, many Jews emigrated to Shanghai.<br />Shanghai did not require a visa to get in.<br />They only accepted 17,000 Jews.<br />
  12. 12. Refugees cont.<br />These refugees are from the Sudetenland.<br />They arrived in Prague, Czechoslovakia in 1938 following the Sudetenland annexation by Germany.<br />
  13. 13. Non-Jewish Resistance<br />The Jews weren’t the only group that the Nazis didn’t like.<br />They also did not like: Gypsies, Slavic peoples, Catholics, non-whites, political opponents, Jehovah’s Witnesses, and homosexuals.<br />Many of these groups resisted the Nazi Regime.<br />Pictured here is an example of non-Jewish resistance to the Nazi Regime<br />Picture from http://threatquality.com/2009/12/22/everybody-wants-to-punch-hitler-in-the-face/<br />
  14. 14. Examples of Non-Jewish Resistance<br />In April 1940, a resistance movement began operations in Nazi-occupied Denmark.<br />This resistance movement killed informers, raided Nazi facilities, and sabotaged rail roads.<br />In 1941 the Dutch population began a strike in protest of the horrible treatment of the Jews.<br />In 1944 the Polish Home Army began a revolt, which the Nazis put down in two months.<br />http://www.ushmm.org/wlc/article.php?lang=en&ModuleId=10005420<br />
