Children of Holocaust Children of the Camps During the Holocaust, millions of Jews, gypsies, and members of other groups were persecuted and murdered by Nazi occupied Europe. However, many forget to acknowledge that among these were children.
Adolf Hitler was a very strong minded individual that liked everything to go his way, and for what he believed in. Germany was already a very racial country, and judged people strongly on their religious beliefs, and their political communities. When Hitler first gained power, he formed an advanced police and military force to smother anyone who criticized his authority.
With this force, Hitler developed the first concentration camp, Dachau. Later Dachau became a huge concentration camp to exterminate Jews. Hitler made life miserable for Jews.
On April ofthe Nazis initiated by boycotting all Jewish ran businesses. The Nuremberg Laws issued in September ofmade it so Jews were excluded from most public life.
The law included exposing the German Jews of their citizenship, and outlawed marriages and extramarital sex between Jews and Germans.
This law was the start of all legal standards for additional anti-Jewish legislation. After the Nuremberg Laws, many new laws against Jews were created. These laws kept Jews away from parks, fired them from civil service jobs, forced Jews to register their property, and prohibited Jewish doctors from working on anyone other than Jewish patients.
The night was filled with violence, and pillaging and burning of synagogues. The Nazis broke windows and raided the Jewish-owned businesses. The Jews were physically attacked, and about 30, Jews were arrested and taken to concentration camps.
Ghettos were specific areas in cities that the Nazis ordered the Jews to live in. Ghettos started off more open, where you could leave during the day and come back when you had to, but than they got stricter and the Jews were trapped within boundaries of the ghetto and not allowed to leave at all.
The Nazis sent deportations from the ghettos, tricking them by saying they were being transferred to another location to do some labor.
In some of the larger ghettos, 1, people per day were forced on trains and sent to either a concentration camp or a death camp.
The largest ghetto was in Warsaw, and had a population of aroundWhen the Nazis tried to liquidate the Warsaw Ghetto, the Jews were not going to go down without a fight. This event was called the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising.
The Jewish fighters held their own against the whole Nazi organization for twenty-eight days. When the Jews were transferred by train, they were either taken to a concentration camp, extermination camp, labor camp, prisoner-of-war camp, or transit camp. Life in the camps was horrible.
The Jewish prisoners were forced into doing hard physical labor.Susanne Heim is Deputy Research Director for the Max Planck Society’s research program “The History of the Kaiser Wilhelm Society in the National Socialist Era” in Berlin, and Charles H.

The Holocaust is truly an event that is never to be forgotten. It is sad to know that so many innocent people were killed for no reason. One group of people that were killed were the children, their families destroyed and their dreams shatterd.
