Holocaust

The Holocaust by:Olivia Cranmore'Kylen Rowland

"Trains is the moving account of a hidden child, a lonely girl who survived the Holocaust and escaped the Nazis in World War II Poland by living among strangers and pretending to be a Catholic girl, and who continued to hide her identity, heritage, and history in Communist Poland for two decades after the war ended. Trains is also the inspiring story of a courageous woman finding, facing, and telling the truth about her extraordinary life." -Unknown reveiwer

Holocaustby Barbara SonekWe played, we laughedwe were loved.We were ripped from the arms of ourparents and thrown into the fire.We were nothing more than children.We had a future. We were going to be lawyers, rabbis, wives, teachers, mothers. We had dreams, then we had no hope. We were taken away in the dead of night like cattle in cars, no air to breathe smothering, crying, starving, dying. Separated from the world to be no more. From the ashes, hear our plea. This atrocity to mankind can not happen again. Remember us, for we were the children whose dreams and lives were stolen away.

The Holocaust was the systematic, governmental, state-sponsored mass murder of six million Jews by the Nazi rule and its associates. The Nazis, who came to power in Germany in January 1933, believed that Germans were "racially superior" and that the Jews, were "inferior," were an alien threat to the so-called German racial community.

After the Holocaust American and Soviet troops were sent in to the concentration camps and immidiately shut down. Jews and other survivors were sent back to their regular lives/homes or hosptitals.

Holocaust-destruction or slaughter on a mass scale, especially caused by fire or nuclear war.
