~Night~ ~By: Elie Wiesel~. Niky Kmiec And Khristen Logan. ~The truth about the Holocaust!~. What I already knew. Before reading about this book I knew that the Holocaust was real. I knew that people tried to forget the things that happened.
What I already knew
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~
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.~
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~
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!~
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!~
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~
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~
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!~
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~
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.~
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!~
What I Think
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
