Night by Elie Wiesel


September 1, 1939 the confiscated Jewish property, in many places required Jews to wear identifying armbands, and established ghettos and forced-labor camps (ushmm)



May 20, 1940 Camp Auschwitz establishes. "It included three main camps, all of which deployed incarcerated prisoners at forced labor. One of them also functioned for an extended period as a killing center." (ushmm)

January 17,1945 the Germans evacuate Auschwitz; beginning of the death march. "Tens of thousands of prisoners, mostly Jews, were forced to march either northwest for 55 kilometers or due west for 63 kilometers" (ushmm)

January 27, 1945 ten days after the death march; Hitler surrenders and Camp Aushwitz is liberated.


Golden Lines

1. From that moment on, everything happened very quickly. The race toward death had begun.2. Faster! Faster! Move, you lazy good-for-nothings! the Hungarian police were screaming.3. The night had passed completely. The morning star shone in the sky. I too had become a different person. The student of Talmud, the child I was, had been consumed by the flames. All that was left was a shape that resembled me. My soul had been invaded – and devoured – by a black flame.4. Never shall I forget that night, the first night in camp, which has turned my life into one long night, seven times cursed and seven times sealed....Never shall I forget those moments which murdered my God and my soul and turned my dreams to dust. Never shall I forget these things, even if I am condemned to live as long as God Himself. Never.” 5. “One more stab to the heart, one more reason to hate. One less reason to live.”

The Nazis had come to power in 1933, and used propaganda and terror to enforce their anti-Semitic policies. They made sure to take an advantgge of the Jews where they took human rights from them.( Sah) Basically the whole situation was based on hatred that couldn't be solved another way. i think that people could've stopped this to happen. However they chose to act or not to which made the Holocaust worst than already is.

I belive that to experience the Holocaust was an uneasy process. Victims of the Holocaust went through brutal pain, sickness, and hardship. They were stuck between life in death during so many situations during their time in camp. The prisoners saw people die in front of them and family members be seperated from each other. The living conditions at the camp weren't very good either they were feed at max three times a day or at times not at all. They were exposed to many illness and disease. Lastly, they didnt have much clothing to keep themselves warm. Arbeit macht frei in translation menas work makes you free. The Jews were forced to work in order to be free. The Holocaust was an uneasy and surprising situation that shouldn't ever happen again. Never....
