What I learned about the Holocaust is that many groups of ethnicities were abused not just Jewish people. I think humans could have prevented this tragedy by standing up for their countires rights when they had a chance instead of appeasing to what Hitler convinced everyone as "peace". Another way humans could have prevented this is by not being so harsh to Germany in the Treaty if Versailles. If we were to give Germany the equality we gave others maybe Hitler wouldn't have taken control.

I learned that the Holocuast was a genocide wich occured during World War 2. These mass murders were committed by Adolf Hitler and his Nazi party. They killed between 6 and 11 million people. Mostly jews, but they also killed homosexuals, blacks, disabled, just undisrables in the Nazi eye. The Nazi's had many concentration camps wich they sent these undisrables to. They faced harsh conditions,from being forced to work to being killed in gas chambers and in death marches. Many were killed few survived. America as a counrty couldve entered the war more quickly and had stopped a lot of these innocent people from dying but we were also busy with our countries problems such as the Great Depression.

What I learned about the Holocaust was that i was a very tragic moment in multiple peoples lives and was a horrifying time period. I also learned that Jews weren't the only ones involved in this situation. it was also homosexuals and people that were seen as undesirable, and also gypsies. In a way that humans could have prevented this tragedy from happening was maybe to all work together as one big union and fight for every ones rights to be a equal human being. Another way they could have prevented this was to invade their property and punish them for being unequal towards Jews and other races that weren't normal as they thought they were. In my opinion this is how i think humans could have stopped this tragedy.

What I learned about the Holocaust was that other groups of people were harmed and abused, such as homosexuals and gypsies. Humans could have stood up for their country and also what they believed in. The majority of humans were against Hitler, but nobody wanted to stand up to him. If they had joined together, they could have overpowered him from the beginning. This is my opinion of how humans could have stopped this tragedy from happening.

What i learned about the Holocaust was that it was a very tragic time in history. Millions of people died and suffered. I learned that not only were Jews targeted but many other groups like homosexuals,blacks,gypsies, and poles. There are many ways we could have prevented this. America could have stepped in and made sure Hitler didn't get full control of Germany. If America stepped up and helped Germany i think millions of deaths could have been prevented.

By exploring these websites, I learned that the prisoners of Nazi concentration camps were used to convey horrible punishments. Such as being tested in cruel and unusual "medical experiments", starvation, physical and emotional abuse, and the overall death of millions of innocent people. Hitler and the Nazi soldiers mainly focused on three types of people. Jewish, gypsies, and homosexuals. People with these characteristics were singled out and forced into concentration camps, such as Auschwitz. Auschwitz was one of the biggest camps Hitler had created. It obtained 4 large gas chambers and many death marches. This horrifying mass murder is what we now know as the Holocaust.

What I learned about the Holocaust was that many people were abused and killed. It wasent just the Jews that were abused, it was also the Polish and Soviet Union and many others that were abused. I also learned that their living conditions were just horrible. They had no bathroom. All they had was a bucket. Also many prisoners were harmed from dhydration and hunger. Humans could of told the rest of the nation or even the world to what Hitler was doing. Us humans could of joined together as one to overpower him and his military to end Hitlers horrible actions.

using my background knowledge and all that i have just seen i know that the holocaust was a very disturbing and just plain awful time for all undesireables such as Jews, Gypsys, homosexuals and "Poles." These websites have shown me the true horrors of the holocaust, people being burned alive, people being shot dead, people being gassed, small children suffocating in the rail cars on the way to the camps and something else very sad which is the priosoners feeling so low that they went and threw themselves into the electrical fence committing suice to end the pain. Some others described the prisoners as "walking corpses" because they looked boneless and soulless, which is very ironic seeing that they only looked like bones. Something that "wowed" me was that some of the officers involved with the Holocaust werent even charged with a crime and got off with no to little time in jail. These tragic tragedies could have been prevented if somebody would of stepped up to Hitler before he got that far as to the Holocaust. Humanity could have stopped this also if they some common sense. Also if other countries didnt allow something like this to happen it could have been prevented.

What i learned about the Holocaust was it was not just for the jews. There were gypsy's, homosexuals and prisioners of war. Pretty much anyone that hitler thought didnt deserve to live. Hitler had murdered between 6-14 million people in the holocaust. I think if people would of stud up to hitler and tried to stop him it wouldnt have been as bad but know one helped. they knew what was going on and didn't do anything about it.

The holocaust was a tragic event in our history. I learned that they planned everything in such a chronical order. From the start to the end the nazis start with taking over areas to killing people. As humans they could have stopped it at the begining to stop the butterfly effect, with the genocide.

What i learned about the Holocaust was that it was a horrible time period for a lot of people. people who were affected by the Holocaust were not just Jew's there were also Homosexuals and Jehovahs Witnesses. Pretty much anyone who was not abored with Hitler's plan. what people could of done to prevent this tragic time period is to every nation who fought in world war 2 come together at once and take Hitlers power away!

The Holocaust was a tragicly time period in history. Jews also does who resisted their dominaion and those they judge to be racially inferior or politically unacceptable, any person who publicly voices doubts concerning Germanys victory in the war. These prisoners wewre treated unfairly and bearly feded. This could be stoped by being less racial towards othersSairaneth chavez
