Suffering of the Jews

Suffering of the Jews

It is not easy to describe the sufferings of the Jews during the Holocaust, a very dreadful tragedy that occurred in the history of mankind. There were 6 million Jews who were killed in that tragic event. The Germans gained so much power during those times and even children thought that they are superior than the Jews. They greatly persecuted the Jews. Actually, the Jews had their own businesses all throughout Europe. So, their economic status is good enough. Probably, the Germans felt jealous of them.

When the Nuremburg Laws was passed to exclude Jews from the civil society, the sufferings of the Jews also began. As over 42, 000 concentration camps, ghettos, and other detention sites were established, the stages of persecution also became more severe.  There were even mass shootings that took place and 1.3 million Jews were murdered and killed. Jews greatly suffered when they were deported from the ghettos in sealed freight trains until they reached the extermination camps. Those who survived in the journey were finally killed in the gas chambers.

Only after the end of World War II, the killing finally stopped. There were some Jews who survived and when they were interviewed, they almost couldn’t describe how they greatly suffered during the Holocaust. The Jewish women who were confined in ghettos and concentration camps were only allowed to wash once a day without any sanitary soap. They were confined, restricted and segregated from the civil society. In the gas chambers, the Jews couldn’t help but to be on top of the other wanting to go out and escape.
