What was the Holocaust?
  • A definition of the Holocaust is
  • The systematic, bureaucratic annihilation of six
    million Jews by the Nazi regime and their
    collaborators as a central act of state during
    World War II.

The Star of David Each country had a
different version of the Star of David. Here are
a few examples

French word for "Jew" is written in Hebraic
style.
2) The Dutch Version of the Star of David. The
Dutch word for "Jew" is written in Hebraic style.
3) The Slovak Version of the Star of David. In
the centre of the star is an abbreviation of the

The remembrance of the holocaust
  • The Victoria holocaust Remembrance and education
    society was started eight years ago, almost
    single-handedly, by Holocaust survivor Peter
    Gary. He used to go round schools telling and
    teaching children about his experiences of the
    Holocaust. He was doing this on his own and was
    not being paid, but he was determined to make
    sure that nothing was forgotten and set up this
    organisation, to teach young people about The
    Holocaust.

  • There are always things being done to
    remember The Holocaust.

Survivors
  • At the beginning of the holocaust, in March 1942,
    a wave of mass murder swept across Europe.
  • In the next 11 months 4,500,000 human beings were
    eliminated.
  • By the end of World War II the toll had risen to
    approximately 6,000,000 Jews, which included
    1,500,000 children, who were killed at the hands
    of the Nazi murderers.
  • When the killing ended those who survived were
    released from the concentration camps and came
    out of hiding.

What she had to say about the holocaust
I had a very difficult time, and I have to admit
it I cannot...I cannot forgive. I cannot
forgive, and I do blame...I blame the German
people a great deal because I felt that they were
passive, they turned away, they have the audacity
still today to say that they didn't know. I'm
sorry. That's unacceptable...that's
unacceptable...it can't possibly...how can you
not smell. They had to. They have to. And until
they own up to it, I'm sorry, I can't. _________

How should the victims of the Holocaust be
remembered?
  • We think that
  • There should be a two minutes silence at noon on
    the day that WW2 ended.
  • It is important to remember this event, so that
    it will never happen again.
  • There should be a parade/celebration for the
    survivors of the Holocaust.
