Holocaust Project

By Kornelijus Vengris


 Q1.  The Holocaust was the genocide of approximately six million European Jews during World War II, a programme of systematic state-sponsored murder by Nazi Germany, led by Adolf Hitler, throughout Nazi-occupied territory.

Antisemitism (also spelled anti-semitism or anti-Semitism) is suspicion of, hatred toward, or discrimination against Jews for reasons connected to their Jewish heritage. 
Q2.   Realizing that the majority of merchants were Jewish, Hitler blamed the Jews for the fall of the economy and its runaway inflation in the 1930s in Germany.

Q4.  ‘’The black-haired Jewish youth lies in wait for hours on end, satanically glaring at and spying on the unsuspicious girl whom he plans to seduce, adulterating her blood and removing her from the bosom of her own people. The Jew uses every possible means to undermine the racial foundations of a subjugated people.’’


The Nazis required it as a way to identify Jews quickly and easily.

Q6.  The biggest Ghetto in Nazi occupied Germany was in Poland in Warsaw.  Lining the floors is odorous human waste. The bunks inside the huts are filled to capacity, and some are more. No one could lie straight down and some living shared bunks with the dead. Some people on top bunks couldn’t move, or were to weak to move, so they let their waste fall into the bunks below them. Hundreds of people to one thousand people were usually in one hut. Hut’s were made for 100 people. Disease thrived in every corner. Lice and other diseases caused most of the deaths. Medical rations were in high supply, but a limited amount could only be given. There was no lice medicine, so lice thrived around almost all Jews.

Food rations were very meager. Watery stew was the basic diet of many Jewish Ghetto Prisoners. Food distribution was a terrible system. Food distributors would hand out food, but there was no promise that everybody would get their share. The weak people who could not get their own share would not get any food.
The conditions of Jewish Ghettos were some of the main causes of deaths among Jews. The Holocaust is a sad reminder of all the brutal things that a human mind can think of. I hope this brings some insight on what humans should and should not do.
Q7.  Hostage camps (or death camps),
        Labor camps,
        POW camps,
        Camps for rehabilitation and re-education of Poles,
        Transit and collection camps,
        Extermination camps.
Most popular camp was in Warsaw.
