Concentration Camps

Post  Drew Smity Smith on Fri Feb 25, 2011 10:05 am

Concentration camps were camps back in the 1900's specifically about 1939 - 1945. Around that time the German's economy was failing; so, they blamed the Jews. They used the Jews as scapegoats. Adolf Hitler thought that if they sent away the Jews Germany's problems would also go away. So, they sent all the Jews they could round up to concentration camps to be killed, women, children, old people and infants, all Jews were killed. Hitler wanted a genocide (kill all the people of a specific race.) When the Jews arrived at the concentration camps the young, (1-18 years of age) the old and women were burnt in a crematorium, but the men were kept to work until they were weak and then they would be slaughtered as well. While the Jews were in the camp they would be given little to no food and sometimes would be starved. They would build for the SS and the Nazis but no gratitude would be given. If one of the Jews would speak out they would be beaten senseless. If they did something really bad they would be hung and left there as a warning to all the other members of the camp. In the end some of the Camps were invaded by the Allies and the Jews were set free, but sadly many Jews were killed, it is estimated 7million Jews died during that period of time and about 2 million of them children. It is extremely sad but nobody wanted to get involved and help the Jew. If you were a guard at one of these camps would you try to help out the Jews and risk death?

It is awful to see how a human treats another human in such evil ways. Jews were put through a lot and they went through a lot of physical and dramatic changes. Because of this situation, we have Jews in this country. Trujillo took the Jews in our country while other countries didn't want them so they wouldn't have anything to do with anything.

cruel camps

the Holocaust really left an impact on many peoples lives. i feel very bad for the people that got out alive because there is really no way to just forget about what you"ve been through. i think that it was very wrong of the Germans to try and make their race pure by killing everyone who wasn't German. Hitler should of been thought of as everything but a hero. Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad

Its just terrible what they did to all those people. They just killed them and didn't have any mercy, thats just awful. The funny thing is that Hitler was a vegeterian because he thought it was cruel to kill animals, another thing is that he was part jew too. how can human kind be so terrible. All the children, mothers, and old people that died when they had a whole life to go through. thats just a shame.

Concentration Camps

The concentration camps were the worst inventions ever invented. This was much a terrible time for many people. They were forced to give up all they had and were treating like trash. They were brutally beaten and burnt without any explanation. It awful hearing how humans can be sometimes. We should all be peaceful and help each other which will make everything a better place.

Concentration camps were deadle. Its amazing how humans can invent such thing and it proves they had no heart. One of the most known ones was Aushwitz

It is so sad to think about thousands of innocent people (Jews) to be killed just because another race (Germans) don't want them living on their land. A concentration camp is where the men are forced to work and the women and children are taken to a crematorium to be burnt and killed. They would be tortured right in front of everyone, kids would get hung in front of their parents and they would starve. Human were torturing other human for no good reason at all.
Good job.

Well if i were to be a guard i would try to help the slaves as much as possible. I dont think it fair to be killed just because of your religion. But they did it anyway... SO SAD!!!

concentration camps was a horrible thing that Hitler did. It was unfair to all the innocent Jews who had done nothing but live. Such thing should never be repeated in histroy.

I dont know how so much evil can a person have!! Concentration camps were aweful! It's sad to know that does horrible thing ever existed. Germans were stupid enough to believe their ''leader'' and actually kill them, not knowing that Jews were not the ones to blame!
