Summary of Facts about Holocaust Europe
The facts about holocaust showed that the main government in Germany
designed the Jews destruction in a plan. The plan was called "The Last Solution
of the Jews question". Hitler designed to realize the plan during the war. In
September 1939, when the war begun, the Nazi leaders discussed the Jews special
treatment. The Gestapo manager, Heinrich Himmler, operated, with all of his
energy, to plot the program "Last Solution". In September 1939, he delivered
the plan orders to the Gestapo heads.
The main orders were:
1. To concentrate the Jews in ghettos in the big cities. "Because it will be a
good point for inspection and then for evacuation".
2. Send all German Jews to Poland.
The facts about holocaust showed also that from the start of Poland
occupation and till the war end, a special central headquarters dealt in
details with the war against the Jews. Some of the orders were written and
delivered. But most of the acts and the daily operations produced by local
commanders. They operated in the spirit of their in charge officers.
In their army march, the German soldiers operated against the Jews on a daily
manner. The soldiers shoot Jews in their streets and their homes. They abused
them and forced them to do contemptible work. They introduced them naked
and then pictured them. In some places they killed thousands of Jews.
An order from October 1939, enforced work on Poland Jews. Some of the work was
for the war efforts and included, paving roads, river channels diversions,
buildings destruction, building bridges etc. Some of the work was just hard
work without products to force weakling and humiliation.
The regime and the orders in the work camps, shorted the workers lives. They
have been held in places, far from their work places and they were ordered to
reach their work places by foot. The food portions were very small. The
German or Poland guardians beat them and sometimes killed them. Murders
were a common scene.
The facts about holocaust showed that the German started Jews
concentration in ghettos after they entered Poland, In September 1939. There
were open ghettos. These places were without walls and in some places the Jews
could leave the ghetto for some hours in the day. There were ghettos with
walls and German or Poland guardians. If someone had been caught escaping, he
was shoot to death immediately. The big concentration camp was
established in 1940 in Warsaw Poland. A white wall closed between its
half million Jews and the external world.
The ghettos were prisons to the Jews. Inside them, there was horror regime,
murders and people were very hungry. The German role the food supply.
They gave the ghetto residents little portions of food. In most cases the food
for the ghetto didn't arrive. If the food arrived, it was in bad condition and
not good for eating. The Jews tried to get food from the outside world and many
of them were caught and shoot to death by the guardians.
The German inserted into the Poland ghettos Jews from German and other occupied
countries. The ghetto area was small to include all its residents. The
sanitarian arrangements were very poor. The diseases and the epidemics killed
many Jews. There were few doctors in the ghettos because the Jews elite
were the first to be killed by the German.
In 1941 the German started murder Jews in gas chambers. The first attempts were
made in Auschwitz-Birkenau camp in south Poland. In 1942, the Nazi regime
know how to kill people in hard work and how to chock them in gas chambers.
With these methods, they killed 4 millions Jews in Auschwitz-Birkenau
extermination camp. In other Poland and Germen camps and in all Europe they
killed more then 2 millions Jews.
