By Adrian McClure WWII
March 1933 The first concentration camp I arrived to in Dachau, opened in March, They told all of us to take all of our clothes off and put it in one pile. They gave us all tattoo like markings on our arms that was really painful.
The SS guards handed everyone striped pajamas that we had to wear day and night. We didn't’t know what was going on. They didn't’t give me much food. The guards gave us a couple pieces of bread and soup.
Some one told me that the camps was run by a man name Adolf Hitler. We was told to do hard manual labor. There was many people around me getting sick and dying because we were giving a little amount of food.
His mission was to kill off the whole race of Jewish people. I heard there was many more of these concentration camps where everyone was being killed.
was a horrible time period for us. They had many ways of killing people. For example the main methods of killing were #1 mass open air shootings and #2 gassing. It was very deadly it took about mins to kill them.
The US came over to Germany to free all of us after the Holocaust ended at the end of WWII. The Nazi were defeated due to being defeated in war. The Holocaust ended in certain places when the allies let go of the prisoners in the camps in After Hitler died in 1945, the Germans decided surrendered and let go of all of us Jewish prisoners. The allied armies all came into Germany to let go of the concentration camps and people. Of the nine million Jews who had resided in Europe before the Holocaust, approximately two-thirds were killed.

Adolf Hitler Despite becoming the dictator of Germany, Hitler was not born there. Hitler was born in Braunau am Inn, Austria on April 20, At the end of 1908, Hitler's mother died of breast cancer. After his mother's death, Hitler spent four years living on the streets of Vienna, selling postcards of his artwork to make a little money. No one is quite sure where or how Hitler picked up his virulent anti-Semitism. Some say it was because of the questionable identity of his grandfather(was Hitler's grandfather Jewish?. Others say Hitler was furious at a Jewish doctor that let his mother die. However, it is just as likely that Hitler picked up a hatred for Jews while living on the streets of Vienna, a city known at the time for its anti- Semitism. As dictator of Germany, Hitler wanted to increase and strengthen the German army as well as expand Germany's territory.
