The Nazi didn’t just go after Jews, they also went after people who weren’t like them. In 1933 before the holocaust happened, nine million Jews lived across Europe After the Holocaust there were about four million left Adding on to that two to three million were Soviet POW’s
There was an organization called T4 or Tiergartenstrasse 4 They were in charge of the elimination of the “Life unworthy of life” This help the holocaust in many ways. It was a legitimate form of government which sponsored killing It also was a major part of the elimination of the Jews
There were many camps all over Europe The most widely know is Auschwitz. This is the largest camp where most of the people died. Originally camps were for political prisoners, criminals, and security risks. Even though there were many deaths at the camps, and they were horrible, there is no evidence that they were supposed to be for extermination
Although it can not be proven they were known as death camps. People here died from all sorts of things They were worked to death Epidemics spread because there were so many people that it was easy to catch a disease Or the could have been murdered
The famous saying with any bi/autobiography you read they will always remember Women and children to the left men to the right. If you were too you or too old you were killed by being shot, gas chambers, or another form of torture An if you were to weak to work, you would be killed immediately also
The first camps was Buchenwald As more space was need, they kept building more and more camps These at first held: Communists, democrats, socialists, political criminals, homosexuals and some Jews.

The living conditions were horrible in these camps Sleeping spaces were cramps with no blankets or pillows plus the mattresses were not very comfy Their food that they were given was a piece of bread and a small bowl of soup. That was supposed to last all day while doing hard labor.
Getting to camp was not that easy Many had to ride a train to get there Their trains weren’t normal trains though they were storage crates that they would stuff with 40+ people They counted the people and locked the crate so that no one would escape As if that wasn’t enough, the Nazi’s threatened that if anyone escaped they would all be killed
These trips would take days to get to their destinations The people would go for days without food water and also being cramped There was no sufficient place to go to the bathroom and there was no place to sit or sleep.
They also made long walks to get places If they were changing camps they would have to walk/run their This is the time many people escaped cause it wasn’t well monitored Especially when there were bombing attacks it was chaos
In the final months of war they moved people from camps. This was to prevent the liberation of the prisoners These marches were called death marches This is when many of the allied troops came and liberated all of the camps
It wasn’t so bad before the camps At first they were required to wear yellow Stars of David’s on their clothes. Yet this is still degrading this wasn’t their worst part of their lives After a few years, The Nazi’s started moving everyone to Ghettos Ghettos were kind of like suburbs but were a little more intense
The Ghettos were enclosed suburbs more like. They had high fences with barbed wire all around. They had guards watching their every move and making sure no one would escape Though this sound a little bit bad, they still were able to live normal lives and do everything anyone else did, just they were all Jews
