  1. ~Night~ ~By: Elie Wiesel~ Niky Kmiec And Khristen Logan

  2. ~The truth about the Holocaust!~ What I already knew

  3. Before reading about this book I knew that the Holocaust was real. I knew that people tried to forget the things that happened I knew a lady that was in the Holocaust. She use to tell my grandmother stories about what happened. She is a very paranoid person,and refuses to leave her house. The lady that I knew is very afraid of people and has a number tattooed on her right for-arm. ~Things I knew before~

  4. ~What I learned~ Lectures, Holidays, Traditions

  5. During his lecture I learned that most of the death camps were in Poland, except one that was in Maidonek. There were certain camps made for only women. Belsen, Bergan was a place where they dumped a lot of the bodies. He talked about how Ann Frank’s family was on the last train to Westerbork. Every city had a railroad way to Aushwitz. There was a sign above the camp to Aushwitz that read “ARbEIT MARCHT FREI” which means work will make you free. ~Mr.Factor’s lecture.~

  6. Block #11 was in Aushwitz, this was the torture block where they conducted experiments on twins. The Jews had to sleep in barracks that were set up military style. The beds were mad out of wood and maybe some straw to sleep on. There were 700 people or more to a barrack. In Aushwitz, they had an orchestra that played for everything. The real meaning behind the band was a warning purpose mostly. He also talked about a revolt in 1944 where they blew up a crematory Over I million people died in Aushwitz Nuremberg trials-24 on trial and 21 died. ~Mr.Factor 2~

  7. Yom Kippur is probably the most important holiday of the Jewish year. Many Jews who do not observe any other Jewish custom will refrain from work, fast and/or attend synagogue services on this day. Yom Kippur occurs on the 10th day of Tishri. The holiday is instituted at Leviticus 23:26 et seq. The name "Yom Kippur" means "Day of Atonement," and that pretty much explains what the holiday is. It is a day set aside to "afflict the soul," to atone for the sins of the past year. ~Jewish traditions!~

  8. Yom Kippur has its own candlelighting blessing. If the holiay coincides with Shabbat,the words in parentheses are added: Baruch atah adonai eloheinu melech ha'olam asher kid'shanu b'mitzvotav v'tzivanu l'hadlik neir shel (shabbat v'shel) you hakippurim. After the candles are lit, the Shehecheyanu prayer is recited. The prayer to the left has something to do with blessed the name that is out lord, watch over us and protects us. I don’t know exactly what that means. ~More On Yom Kippur!~

  9. Rosh Hashanah occurs on the first and second days of Tishri. In Hebrew, Rosh Hashanah means, literally, "head of the year" or "first of the year." Rosh Hashanah is commonly known as the Jewish New Year. This name is somewhat deceptive, because there is little similarity between Rosh Hashanah, one of the holiest days of the year, and the American midnight drinking bash and daytime football game. There is, however, one important similarity between the Jewish New Year and the American one: Many Americans use the New Year as a time to plan a better life, making "resolutions." Likewise, the Jewish New Year is a time to begin introspection, looking back at the mistakes of the past year and planning the changes to make in the new year. More on this concept at Days of Awe. ~Rosh Hashanah~

  10. The period from Passover to Shavu'ot is a time of great anticipation. We count each of the days from the second day of Passover to the day before Shavu'ot, 49 days or 7 full weeks, hence the name of the festival. See The Counting of the Omer. Shavu'ot is also sometimes known as Pentecost, because it falls on the 50th day. The counting reminds us of the important connection between Passover and Shavu'ot: Passover freed us physically from bondage, but the giving of the Torah on Shavu'ot redeemed us spiritually from our bondage to idolatry and immorality. It is noteworthy that the holiday is called the time of the giving of the Torah, rather than the time of the receiving of the Torah. The sages point out that we are constantly in the process of receiving the Torah, that we receive it every day, but it was first given at this time. Thus it is the giving, not the receiving, that makes this holiday significant ~Shavu’ot~

  11. The word "Torah" is a tricky one, because it can mean different things in different contexts. In its most limited sense, "Torah" refers to the Five Books of Moses: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy. But the word "torah" can also be used to refer to the entire Jewish bible or in its broadest sense, to the whole body of Jewish law and teachings. Bereishith (In the beginning...) (Genesis) Shemoth (The names...) (Exodus) Vayiqra (And He called...) (Leviticus) Bamidbar (In the wilderness...) (Numbers) Devarim (The words...) (Deuteronomy) ~The Torah!~

  12. When the Nazis came to carry out their genocidal programme, they found collaborators in all the countries they dominated, including governments that enjoyed considerable public support. Most people drew the line at mass murder, but relatively few could be found to oppose it actively or to extend help to the Jews. Aushwitz-Birkenau became more than a concentration camp. In 1942 gas chambers were built at Birkenau and mass transport of Jews began to arrive. Some new arrivals were registered, and others were taken straight to the gas chambers. ~World War 2~

  13. Total, about 900,000 people were gassed at Birkenau without even being registered. Almost all of them were Jews. There were also Catholic’s and Slavs.This brought the death total at Aushwitz to about 1.1million, 1million of which were Jewish. ~More on WW2~

  14. ~The Story~ ARbEIT Marcht FREI

  15. This is a story about a boy, Elizer Wiesel. Throughout this story we can see that he loses his faith completely after being in a camp for so long. The theme of this story is the Holocaust. He talks about what he goes through while at the various camps and the different ways he gets treated. As he describes the different things that happen, he says that as soon as the women, elderly, and children got off the train, they were sent to the crematories. ~The Notebook events.~

  16. They were expelled from Sighet and were sent to Galicia where they were told to work. Then they were sent to the small ghetto, not a camp, but a place of holding for the dispatcher to a camp. Was also in Auschwitz/Birkenau where now a modern-day Poland is. It’s a country that was annexed by Germany in 1939. They were also in Buna where they got a chance be treated like humans. This is a camp in a part of Auschwitz. They were also in Gleiwitz and Bunchwald. Geliwitz is a camp in Poland and Bunchwald is a camp in Germay. ~The Camps!~

  17. ~Reflection~ What I Think

  18. I think that the way the PEOPLE were treated was wrong because even though a person is of different decent or ethnic background or they have a different sexual preference doesn’t mean that you should discriminate on them for something as small as that. The way they thought that the women were week and they just killed them as soon as they got off the train was wrong. They were willing to kill a women who had a chance then an old man who was suffering just because he was a man. My Feelings

  19. Pictures!

  20. Religion as a discrimination • I think that people discriminate against other people because they don’t live the same way as you do. I also hate the way that Hitler and his army of idiots blamed the Jews for everything and every problem in Germany so they killed them all. I alos don’t think that it’s fare that we only here about the Jews. There were also Catholics and other religions in the camps too.

  21. ~What I learned!~ • I think that anybody that has any questions or needs to find anything out about how the camps actually worked, Night would be a book that I would definitely recommend. I think that people only believe what they hear about the Holocaust instead of actually finding things out for themselves and they get lost and make something else up in the place of what they didn’t get. I think that the world likes to forget things like this that happened but you can’t do that because if you don’t know what happened back then, how are you going to understand where you came from and how to change it? Things can’t stay the same forever and people can’t keep treating other people like this so we need to learn from our mistakes and change the future.
