At most camps, several Jews would be crammed into a small shack, given little food and clean water. Disease, which caused death ran rampant. Most Jews would die at a camp either from starvation, disease, gassing or a shooting.
Jews who survived ghettos, starvation, disease, and camps would be liberated near the summer of 1944 when Soviet troops reached camps on the eastern front. Soon after, British and American forces liberated camps on the western front. Survivors on the eastern front weren't as lucky because of the lack of food in Russia.
Not just Jews were targets of the Holocaust. Disabled people, any person of color, homosexuals, Jewish children, gypsies, and Catholics were all targeted for death during the Holocaust. However, Jews were the most largely affected, at an estimated 2 million.
The holocaust lasted from 1938-1944, and was orchestrated by Nazi Germany's horrific regime. During the war, the Nazis set up death camps such as Auschwitz, which killed 2 million Jews alone.
Thank you for listening to my perspective, a German teenager, and I hope you've learned something that you will remember forever, because we shouldn't ever forget. To remember those we lost, and to stop it from ever happening again.
