A Vicious, Vile and Inhumane Period of Time


I think the Holocaust was a vicious, vile, and inhumane period of time. During WWII, Germany’s counselor, Adolph Hitler had reined power. But, he had plans of his own: To wipe out every last Jew on earth, Gypsies, Homosexuals, and disabled people. He though this was the right thing to do. Cleansing the earth of its withdrawals. This sinister act had almost succeeded until the allies came. Allies like Britain, Denmark, United States, Canada, and more who provided assistance to the enslaved people who had fallen into Hitler’s wrath. This true story had really touched my heart. 1.5 million children like us had been killed during that time. In total, 11.5 million civilians were assassinated in the period of 1938-1945.

Eva Olsson was born in a High Orthodox Hasidic family. Her family had denied her and the rest of her family an education.

Adolph Hitler was just that kind of person. When he gained power; plans were made to everyone. Whether or not, if you didn’t join, participate or accept into the Nazi party/regime. You were automatically sentenced to death....
