Worst Camps in the Holocaust

Camps in the Holocaust

The Holocaust was a damaging part in history in the 1940s during World War II. It started in Germany when Hitler became chancellor and president. Jewish people in Europe were concerned and worried about what was going to happen with their family. The Nazis sent Jewish people to concentration camps such as Auschwitz and a death camp called Treblinka. Auschwitz was the worst concentration camp in the war and Treblinka was the worst death camp in the war.

The Nazis were controlled by Adolf Hitler and they sent Jewish people to contraction camps which there were 40,000 camps in the war. The Nazis killed over 6 million Jewish people. The Nazis sent Jewish people to ghettos, this is were they separated the Jewish people from the rest of the population.  History.com says, “During the Holocasut, the creation of ghettos was a key step in the Nazi process of separating, persecuting, and ultimately destroying Europe’s Jews.” This shows that the Jewish people lost their jobs and business and were sent to a small part of town and they left everything behind. This quote is where Hitler blames the Jewish people for the poor economic rate. Hitler said, “An important term to mention here is ‘scapegoat’. Hitler and the Nazis said the Jews were responsible for huge events like losing World War One and the economic crisis. This was totally untrue.  An important term to mention here is ‘scapegoat’. Hitler and the Nazis said the Jews were responsible for huge events like losing World War One and the economic crisis. This was totally untrue.” This shows that Hitler blamed the Jewish people and this forced the Germans to agree with his ideas. Hitler became chancellor, president and he forced the Germans to capture the Jewish people and put them in the ghettos. History says, “Hitler’s emergence as chancellor on January 30, 1933, marked a crucial turning point for Germany and, ultimately, for the world. His plan, embraced by much of the German population, was to do away with politics and make Germany a powerful… He began immediately, ordering a rapid expansion of the state police…composed entirely of Nazis and dedicated to stamping out whatever opposition to his party might arise. From that moment on, Nazi Germany was off and running, and there was little Hindenburg or von Papen or anyone could do to stop it.” This shows  that Hitler commanded more police man and that became the Nazis army and that moment on they started capturing the Jewish people. This is how the start of WWII started, When it started it was bad news to the Jewish people.

Can you imagine being in the worst camp in the Holocaust? The worst camp is Auschwitz. The people that worked there was badly disrespected by the guards, they were given a little amount of bread. A lot of people died of starvation. The Nazis sent Jewish people to ghettos, this is were they separated the Jewish people from the rest of the population.  Auschwitz .com says, “Auschwitz I, the main camp in Oświęcim. In August 1944, it held about 16 thousand prisoners (roughly 10 thousand Jews, 4 thousand Poles, and 3 thousand prisoners from other ethnic groups). This was the location of the SS garrison administration (SS Standortverwaltung), the commander of the local garrison, and the commandant of Auschwitz I… Work in these administrative and economic units and companies was the main labor assignment for the prisoners in this camp.” This proves that Auschwitz was the worst concentration  camp in WWII  and it held thousands of people and it was controlled by the SS Nazi army. There were so many sub camps but this camp was a death camp and a lot of Jewish people died. Auschwitz.com says, “The camp in Monowice was one of the first, and also the largest of the sub-camps of Auschwitz. Over time, it attained the status of headquarters of the “industrial” sub-camps, and its commandant was a manager and administrator, as well as the commander of the SS garrisons that reported to him.” This proves  that it was very large and they killed a lot of people and was in business for a long time. Auschwitz, Birkenau a part of auschwitz it was way different than the main camp because this part is a death camp not a working camp. You can go visit it today but a lot of it is gone. Auschwitz.com said, “The majority probably about 90% of the victims of Auschwitz Concentration Camp died in Birkenau. This means approximately a million people. The majority, more than nine out of every ten, were Jews. A large proportion of the more than 70 thousand Poles who died or were killed in the Auschwitz complex perished in Birkenau. So did approximately 20 thousand Gypsies, in addition to Soviet POWs and prisoners of other nationalities.” This camp was very scary and a lot of people died in the gas chambers. Auschwitz was the worst camp because of these details, do you agree with me? auschwitz

Treblinka was a death camp, which is way different from Auschwitz, if they sent you to this camp you would be died in less than 3 hours.. Treblinka was the most scary death camp and when you got off the death train they gave you a ticket for your stuff and when you entered the camp you were sent to the right and that is was were the gas chambers and you would be died in 3 hours. Holocaust museum says, “In November 1941, under the auspices of the SS and Police Leader for District Warsaw in the Generalgouvernement, SS and police authorities established a forced-labor camp for Jews, known as Treblinka, later as Treblinka I. The camp also served the SS and police authorities as a so-called Labor Education Camp for non-Jewish Poles whom the Germans perceived to have violated labor discipline. Both Polish and Jewish inmates, imprisoned in separate compounds of the labor camp, were deployed at forced labor. The majority of the forced laborers worked in a nearby gravel pit.” Some people survived and they would be forced to work in ditches and were forced to work for hours in hard labor with a little food. Treblinka is a camp that was in access for a  long time and when it was all over they tore it up and now there are stones and rocks that represent stuff. Jewish Library says, “Treblinka was designed as a Nazi extermination camp in occupied Poland during World War II. The camp, constructed as part of Operation Rienhard, operated between July 1942 and October 1943 during which time approximately 850,000 men, women and children were murdered, including more than 800,000 Jews.” A lot of people were murdered by the gas chambers and there were not a lot of survivors. She was on a death train for a month with no food and she was 6 years old and on the train was Anne Frank and everyone was sick and weak so they kept the dead bodies on the train and slept on them. Sarah Moses says, “When Anne Frank died, one month before liberation, Moses was 6 years old, infected with typhus and typhoid, starving and barely alive.” There were many diseases and she was had all of them and before they got there british soldiers brought her to a hospital and she found her dad and aunt survived.  Treblinka  was the worst death camp, do you agree with me? treblinka

These were the worst camps in the war. Hitler mad a bad decision, and a lot of people do not want this to happen again. And some people thought this was a good thing.
