i learned a lot of diffrent things through this activity. I learn how casual nazis were about the horrid things they did to people through out this time period.Also that the thought the were so above everyone else and so them as not even as people but human garbage. Humans could prevent this by not letting things slide by taking action right awway and never let a group like the nazis build up so much power and hurt so many people thats how humans can prevnt something like the holocaust.

I learned many things about the Holocaust. The fact that the events just gets more and more cruel is really sad and terrifying to think about. I learned that in the Nazis chose the town of Auschwitz in Poland to build new concentration camps. Those concentration camps were extremely horryfying due to the fact that most people lasted a few weeks or months, and it was almost impossible to escape out of there. Also, Men, women, and children were used as subjects for "medical expiraments." Human could have prevented this tragedy by preventing WWII iin the first place, and by not being cruel towards Germany in the Treaty Of Versilles.

The holocaust was nothing but racism and cruelty. The holocaust was based off abusing, killing and racism. This could have been stopped if others wouldnt have agreed to be a part of this hitler. If they would have put their foot down and stand up for their people their wouldnt have been so much damage to this innocent people. Just because they were jews or were somehow related to a jew their were immedietly taken into their prison. This innocent people went through several brutal beatings, some were beaten to death and were also put in gas chambers while the Germans just sat out their watching them die with pleasure.If all these people would have went against hitler he wouldnt have had such a big army agaisnt the jews just because they were jews doesnt mean they were different they were still humans who needed to be treated equally like everyone else they had the rights to.

While researching information about the holocaust I learned many things. The Nazis slowly took over power in a range of ten years. They were mainly against the Jewish but also against "Gypsies" and " Homosexuals". They created camps such as Concentration camps, Extermination camps, and Forced-labor camps. They did horrid things to the prisoners. They used the prisoners as experiments to help the Germans. To prevent this they should of stood up for their rights before it all started. Thankfully all of this is over now and we could look back and reflect on this and make sure it never happens again.

Their is many new things that i learned with todays activity. One that after world war 2 some "nazis" where punished for the crimes commited during the holocaust known as "Nuremberg Trials". Two, prisioners created ther own weapons such as knifes to help and protect themselves from others or even just used the knife to cut their ration of bread in half and save it for later. We as humans could have prevented this whole tragedy beacuse we coulve moved from the start before hitler could have gained more power.

I learned that it was difficult during the Holocaust and that a lot of people were killed that were in different religions and different languages or places they are from. Even children were murdered so that they didn't last long. I learned that Jews were mostly involved and that Nazis really hated them. When I read or watch the stuff that happened during the Holocaust, it really makes me sad and mad. Because none of them should have went through that and that they could have had a happier life. Humans could have prevented this tragedy by the Nazis being contained and kept under control. Plus not having WWII go on and agree with Treat of Versilles.

I learned a lot of new things that i didn't know about the Holocaust before. I learned that the Nazis slowly took the Jews rights away. I also learned that the living conditions were really bad. I knew that they were bad, but i didn't know that they were even worse than what i thought. Humans could have done a couple of things to prevent this tragedy. We could have stood up against Germany and the Nazis before all the mass murders started happening. Even when they started we should have put a stop to it right away. If something like this were to happen again we need to step in and put a stop to it right away.

Well reading about the holocaust i learned many different things. I was taken to pictures that were just so hard to see like people in the camps being beaten some almost to their deaths.Exploring the holocaust really opend my eyes to what these people had to go through what they had to wake up to and couldnt escape from. Its sad knowning that there was a man this horrible to do this to others, putiing them through a horrified postion.For elevn years people suffered through this event. The camps that millions of people died in and suffered in for years.Now the question you ask is could people have prevented this tragedy? In my opinion i feel in a way it could have how is by standing up agianst hitler and his soliders fight for whatever it is that you bleive thats right and say that it is wrong for what he is doing.

I learned a lot of new things i didn't know before about the Holocaust. I learned that there were 500 people lodged in a barrack which include 36 wooden bunkbeds. They were given ill-fitting shoes & had no change of clothing. They ate watery soup made with rotten vegetables and meat. We can look back at this and remember the suffering they went through and their struggles to reflect on to never make those mistakes again.

I learned that at certain camps over 1 million people. I also learned that there were many types of people other than jewish people that were placed in concetration camps and after everything was over there was an attempt to punish those responsible for the holocaust. Humans could have prevented something like this from happening by stepping into this problem a lot faster than we did.

through this process i expaned my knowledege on the details of this insane tragedy. i learned that there was an actual "vourt within auschwitz's block 11. they would hold a hearing for "inmates" who commited a crime. at no surprise they would end in death of the "inmate". as humans, we could have seen the signs and not ignored them. we could have also not sent away the refugees.

In learning about the Holocaust. I learned that it was an event that never should of happened. People from all religions were affected by this tragity. It didn't matter if you were jewish are not to be safe. If you were disabled or didn't fit the description of the perfect person for the Nazis, you were affected. In watching and reading about the holocaust I noticed that because of the Treat of Versille it taught the Nazis to fight till the bitter end. With this in mind Germans used every newiest weapon. to force the jewish to give in. I feel where we went wrong was letting Hitler gain power while the world stood by and watched. I feel like we as humans could of stopped him before he gained his power.
