Click here to edit the title
will anderson's insight:

Majdanek was a concentration camp and a death camp. it was a camp for jews and poles and had a maximum capacity of 35000 inmates. it had 19 watchtowers, it contained 227 buildings, gas chambers, two gallows, and a small crematorium. The camp was divided into six sections which contained a women's camp; a field hospital; a men's camp for Polish people and jews; a men's camp for Soviet prisoners of war, civilian hostages, and political prisoners; a men's hospital camp; and a section for further expansion. this camp wasnt only a death camp it was also a labor camp. the camp was controled by ss officers. this camp was one of the worst camps during this time.

Liberation of Nazi Camps

liberation
will anderson's insight:

the liberation of the concentration camps started in 1944 as the war was coming to an end. when other countries came in to see the camps the germans tried to hide the evidence of the mass murder by destroying all their camps. the soviets helped the most during the time by liberating the jews from the camps. by sometime in 1945 the US came in to help the soviets liberate the concentration camps. during the time of the liberation they found out about all the unspeakable conditions these camps were. they talked about all the unbarried dead bodies and the few surviors that were near dead because of all the hard labor they went through without any food.

Holocaust Museum

will anderson's insight:

the holocaust museum was built in D.C on april 1993. it was a response to the tension with American Jews, and it was a cultural response to the increasing power of Holocaust memory among both American Jews and the wider culture. they built a living memorial, museum, and educational space. when building this museum the creators struggled with issues of holocaust representation.

Children during the Holocaust

Holocaust
will anderson's insight:

the Nazi advocated in killing children. they would do this as a measure of security along wit the racial struggle. the german nazi durring this period didnt only kill jewish kids they also killed romani children also known as gypsy. kids in these camps had a better chance for surrvival where adults did not because these kids could be used for forced labor. all of the deaths from these kids was either from starvation or from just being killed by the nazis in the camp. when the kids arrived at the camps most of them were sent strait to the gas chambers because the houses where they were being held where full. if the kid was not a jew and was a gypsy they were just killed right away and not spared. so basically what this web site is saying is that life for kids in a concentration camp is horrible.

will anderson's insight:

the story Fragments was a book about memories of a wartime childhood. this book took place during world war two. the story was told through a Jewish child eyes. in the begging of the story the war had just started and Germans were going around taking Jews to concentration camps to kill them. the narrator is the little kid who has no idea what is going on because he is so young. he is caught and put on a train to go to a barrack. he somehow escapes from the train with help from others. but then caught again a few months later. he is taken to a barracks with all the other kids his age. the story goes on for a few years about how his life was in the barracks. then one day when a women came to get him and take him home with her. this women was now his adoptive mother. the story goes on about how the narrator is so used to the barracks that, that is his home. he hates all people outside of his camp because he thinks they are the people killing the kids. so life with his adoptive mom and school is really hard for him because he dosn't trust anyone. but as he grew up he started to adjust and feel more comfortable in the end.
in the book fragments there was time/place, history, a little bit of culture not much, and most of all human right violations/issues. this story goes over world war two, Germany, Switzerland, concentration camps, the Holocaust, and Jewish kids during the war. this is the scope that goes along with the book Fragments.
