[2014] Arieltorres16: U.S. Human Rights

Life within the camps was horrible. Prisioners were forced to do hard physical labor and given very little food. Torture within the camps was common and deaths were frequent. Prisioners slept with 3 or more people on a crowded bunk.

In addition to Jews, the Nazi's targeted many other groups of people. People of different ethic and religious backgrounds were at risk as were people who were handicapped or homosexual.

Life in the ghettos was usually unbearable. Plumbing broke down, and human waste was thrown in the streets along with the garbage. People were always hungry. Germans deliberately tried to starve residents by allowing them to purchase only a small amount of bread, potatoes, and fat. Every day children became orphaned, and many had to take care of even younger children. Orphans often lived on the streets, begging for bits of bread from others who had little or nothing to share. Many froze to death in the winter.

Final Solution

The Ghettos


The camps were run by the SS (Schutzstaffel; Protection Squadrons- the elite guard of the Nazi's party). Cleanliness and order were mandatory in the camps. Punishment was harsh if not deadly. At a secret meeting, high leaders decided to eliminate all undersirables, mostly Jews, through mass execution. Gas chambers were used at the camps for two years until prisioners were dying on their own.

The Deprivation of Human Dignity

" Racial Infamy." Jews are defined as anyone with 3 or 4 Jewish grandparents regardless of religion. Jews are no longer citizens, cannot marry anyone with " German or related blood."

The " Law of the Protection of the Hereditary Health of the German People" requires all prospective marriage partners to obtain from the public health authorities a certificate of fitness to marry. Certificates are refused to those suffering from "Hereditary Illinesses." contagious diseases, and those attempting to marry in violation of Nuremberg Laws.
