C. A. Lawrence, 2001
        Two Phases of Hatred


   Phase 1 1933-1939
     A Common Enemy : Re-Education
     Citizenship Rights?

     Violence Escalates
            A Common Enemy
   Hitler blames Jews for problems of
    Germany
       • Loss of WWI
       • German Economic Depression
   Jews identified as a “race” –not a
    religion
       • A New Education Begins
   Save Germany from impurities
       • Aryan Virtues
Purify German Culture By Burning Books
Synagogues were used as storage
warehouses. Jews were no longer
    allowed to go to church
Violence Escalates With
 Systematic Invasions
  The Night of Broken Glass
The first organized night of Nazi
 violence

Thousands arrested, including college
 professors, writers, doctors, etc.

Why would they arrest these people
 first?
      How Would You Feel?




Synagogues burned all through Germany, Poland
  and other German Occupied countries
Thousands Arrested…
While Others Are Rounded Up…
And Some Are Left To Mourn.
        Two Phases of Hatred
   Phase 2 (1939-1945)
     World War II Declared (England and
      France)
     Ghettos and Forced Labor Camps

     Gas Chamber Use Begins

     The Final Solution
Jews Are Gathered
   Into Ghettos
Ghettos Are Used to Segregate
  Jews Into Parts of the City
  All Jews would live here,
sometimes with three or four
  families in one apartment




            Food was scarce as well
            as medicine and clothing.
  Jews were used in forced labor
factories to produce for the Nazis.
 Once ghettos would get too full,
Jews would be “deported” to other
          work camps.
Deportation to Various Concentration Camps
      Most camps are run in the same
                 order…




Prisoners arrive by
     Cattle Car
 Once they arrived, they would be
separate men from the women and
             children
Or, they would be separated because
         they couldn’t work.
Prisoners were forced to undress
and hand over personal belongings.
Unfortunately, even those who were
    killed were robbed of their
  belongings. Even wedding rings.
These belongings were stored for
       the Nazis to use.
Prisoners were then shaved (all
camps) and tattooed (in most).
 rooms, which were either really
showers or gas chambers made to
        look like showers.
Work Shall Make You Free
Resistance Movement
 Resistance Didn’t Have to be
          Dramatic…
 Resistance didn’t only include hiding
  Jews or smuggling them to Sweden (like
  Denmark)
 Many snuck food into the ghettos
 Many mailed letters thrown from trains
 Blew up railroad tracks
 Underground newspapers and
  organizations
Liberation
6 Million Jews
        Were Murdered…


But 3 Million Jews
                     Survived.
For The Living And The Dead,
   We Must Bear Witness
