Jewish Experience of WW2
Jewish people were treated very badly from German soldiers. During world war 2 is when the most drastic changes came into effect with the Jewish community. Despite members of the Jewish community trying to leave Germany, on September 1, 1939 Germany’s government refuse to let them leave the country. Do to this happening Jewish members were forced to live in ghetto sections of the country.
As the German soldiers swept through the ghettos of Poland and Germany they were finding Jews to take to the concentration camps. Families were separated and sent to different camps. The camps were set up for the Jews and they took the ones they felt were less useful to kill first. So the sick, and the young were killed first. By 1944, they had killed about 12,000 Jews a day.
Toward the end of the war the Jews were moved to by what was called death marches. When the war finally ended the survivors stayed displaced persons camp that were ran by allied powers. They then moved to other countries like Israel and the united states.
So from 1941-1945 more than 6 million Jews were killed by the Nazi German. the number is to believed to be much higher. Jewish people were treated so unfairly and were killed in such a cold and heartless manner. Nazi Germans killed mothers and children as if they were nobody. This is one of the most gruesome events the world has ever seen.
