1: A is for Anne Frank. Anne Frank was a Jewish girl who went into hiding during the holocaust. Her parents were Otto and Edith Frank. She had an older sister, Margot Frank. She was born on June 12, 1929. Her family went into hiding in the Secret Annex, a secret room built in her father's factory, when she was 13. On August 4, 1944, all of the people in the Secret Annex were arrested. She was sent to a Concentration camp in the Netherlands, then she was deported to Auschwitz-Birkenau extermination camp, in Poland. Later, she was again deported to the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp, in Germany, with her sister. Anne and her sister both die in this camp. Anne was 15 years old.
2: B is for Berlin Wall. The Berlin Wall was a symbol of Communism in Europe. The fall of it marked the end of Communism. C is for Concentration Camp. Concentration Camps were common and infamous for holding the captured Jewish people. Most of them died there due to the terrible conditions. D is for death and disease. Both of these things were common during this time in Concentration Camps.
3: E is for Edith Frank. She is Anne Frank's mother, and Otto Frank's husband. She died in a Concentration Camp in Auschwitz-Birkenau. F is for Fritz Pfeffer. Fritz Pfeffer was the eighth and last person to go into hiding in the Secret Annex.
4: G is for Genocide. Genocide is a mass murder of a specific group of people. 2 other instances of Genocide: * Joseph Stalin, the leader of the Soviet Union, made a series of events, designed to cause a famine in the Ukraine to destroy the people who wanted independence. As a result, about 7,000,000 people died. Basically a 'Forced Famine.' * Armenians in Turkey: over two million Armenians were massacred or deported out of their homes in 1915-1918. | These pictures are very disturbing. The first one makes me picture how desolate, lonely, and cold they must have been. The second and third one makes me wonder how they can force them to work and kill them AND take away their personal belongings. The last one is the worst. They have terrible living conditions (all swuished up_ and are areally scrawny. It's perhaps the most frightening picture to me.
5: H is for Holocaust. The Holocaust was the mass murder of over 6,000,000 Jewish people, led by Hitler.
6: I is for Invasions. The Nazis invaded Germany. J is for Jews. 6,000,000 Jewish people were Massacred by Hitler. K is for Kitty. Kitty was the name of Anne Frank's diary. L is for Living Conditions. The living conditions in the Concentration Camps were terrible. Many people in the Camps died from diseases and starvation.
7: M is for Miep Gies. Miep was born in Vienna on February 15, 1909. In 1933, she started to work at Otto Frank's factory as a secretary. In 1942, Otto asked Miep to help them go into hiding. She agreed, and made sure that the families in the Secret Annex had enough food every day. She also continued to keep Otto's businesss going. After everyone in the Annex was arrested -Miep was not- she found pieces of Anne's diary. She kept all of the pages in a drawer. In 1945, Miep gave Otto Anne's diary. On January 11, 2010, Miep died at the age of 100.
8: N is for Nazis. The Nazis took over Germany and, under Hitler's rule, were involved in the Genocide of the Jews. O is for Opekta. Opekta was the name of the company that Otto Frank worked at. The Secret Annex was located here. P is for Poison Gas. Poison Gas was used to kill many children at the Concentration Camps. Q is for Questions. Many questions were asked about the Holocaust, by Jewish people and everyone around the world.
9: R is for Red. Red is the color of the communist flag. S is for Secret Annex. The Secret Annex was where Anne Frank and her family hid, it was located in the family bussines, behind a bookshelf. T is for thousands. Thousands of people were captured or killed during the Holocaust. U is for Understanding. Today we still learn about events like the Holocaust so we can understand why a past event happened.
10: V is for Victory. Victory was something not experienced by Hitler and the Nazis at the end of World War II. W is for World. The rest of the World didn't believe that the Holocaust was actually happening, until soldiers went into some of the Concentration Camps. X is for the unknown. Many family members didn't know what happened to other members of their family who were taken away. Even today, so many things are still unknown about the Holocaust. Y is for Young People. Many young people were victims of the Holocaust and taken away from their families. z is for ze end.
11: Holocaust Poems | I Am Your Holocaust By Dave Brucker Stars create an imperfect design of the perfect holocaust I take the form of a terminal disease and there's no way to rid yourself of me The impending doom will not pause itself for any man God can't save anyone from me, he won't hear your prayers That figment of your imagination called your dignity will falter in time The waves will crash down on you from your lack of motivation You can do anything you set your mind to, but it won't save you Face the fact that your end is near I am your holocaust | This poem strikes me mainly because it's told from the point of view of the actual event, the Holocaust. I think the most moving line is "I take the form of a terminal disease and there's no way to rid yourself of me" because it compares being a Jew to something like being a cancer patient who is terminally ill and can' ever get better. Like everyone who is a Jew suddenly has a terrible disease, and they all will die. This poem makes me picture a bunch of weak Jewish people who just collapsed due to the Holocaust. I think that it because this poem is from a different perspective I like the way it's written. --Isabel
12: I think this poem strikes me because it is about a young boy or girl who seems like he or she could care less about it. "Why do I have to remember the Holocaust?" It's like saying "Why should I remember it? What's so important about it? It happened so long ago." This is how a lot of people today might think. It IS important and that's why we still study it. Even if you aren't a Jew, it is still important because it affected (and still affects) the whole world. --Megan | WHY DO I HAVE TO REMEMBER THE HOLOCAUST? Why do I have to remember the Holocaust? The reason that I have to remember the Holocaust is because that is part of my heritage And my father was a jew from Baghdad Also I am half Jewish
