The Holocaust

  1. 1. THE HOLOCAUST A power point by Johnathan M., or better known as F.P.P.
  2. 2. An Introduction <ul><li>The holocaust was bad. Simply put, the holocaust was a senseless waste of human life in one of the most cruel ways possible. It was mostly due to the prejudice held by one man, Adolf Hitler. </li></ul>
  3. 3. METHODS TO THE MADNESS <ul><li>How did Hitler’s SS troops do the horrible things they did to the holocaust victims? </li></ul><ul><li>Some of the main methods where asphyxiation, or death by poison gas. </li></ul><ul><li>Another method was right out shooting. </li></ul><ul><li>Some suffered an even worse fate of being burned to death in a pit of fire, or a crematorium (a building with furnaces) </li></ul>
  4. 4. The Conditions <ul><li>The conditions of the concentration camps are comparable to those of the Andersonville prison camp in the Civil War. </li></ul><ul><li>Little food, bad water, shooting of individuals who dare to make a stand. The differences are that the concentration camps where intended to cause death and suffering to the prisoners, and they where not allowed to keep anything that they brought with them. The shelter was provided, but the barracks weren’t anything to brag about, they had muddy floors and sometimes inmates had to cram three people into a bunk. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Nourishment <ul><li>There was little in the area of food and water for the prisoners. Soup, which some suspect of containing the remains of dead prisoners. Bread, which prisoners commented on tasting and possibly containing sawdust. </li></ul>
  6. 6. VERY cruel <ul><li>Prisoners were forced to climb the 186 steps of the Wiener Graben with large blocks of granite on their backs. Often the blocks would fall, crushing limbs and bodies of those following, sometimes killing. The SS guards invented competitions betting on which prisoner would make it to the top first. Those surviving the ordeal would then be forced to jump from the edge of the quarry to their death below. This particular spot at the edge of the quarry was known “The Parachute Jump”. I found this to be especially strange and cruel, a long, painful death, but sometimes you wouldn’t die. </li></ul>
  7. 7. And then what? <ul><li>Once the inmates had been savagely murdered, they where often thrown into a cremator by their friends and family, this had a great demoralizing effect on all of those who had seen it, or even heard of it. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Sick and Twisted <ul><li>Some of the inmates faced even worse fates than death, this fate was worse than all of the others put together. Some of the concentration camps would have doctors who would take inmates and dissect them alive. The doctors would remove organs from living people and put them in jars for later experiments. Some of the Doctors would skin ‘patients’ alive and sell their skins in the form of lampshades, book covers, gloves, and luggage. One especially sick doctor took the heads of two prisoners and used them as paper weights. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Thank you <ul><li>Thank you for watching my strange, yet true power point. Please remember to value your life, because in the end, it might be the only thing you are left with. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Other Places To Learn <ul><li> </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul>
