Risk Taking Researcher - Bethany G
After reading the first few pages of this book I had many questions of what was really happening during this time. The holocaust that lasted in poland lasted from 1930 - 45. It began during world war II, which killed many polish jews that lived there. It took the lives of about three million of the polish jews, which was more than 90% of the pre-war jewish population of poland. Very few survived or escaped from the Nazi's. The holocaust in German, occupied all of poland, which mad them have to listen and follow the rules of the german. Many polish - jews, where killed because of that and mad the population decrease since the jewish population was mostly killed. DUring this time, the jews were treated very poorly, and were disrespected most of the time. On page 53, it tells us that the non jewish polish prisoners, got cabins that were heated and had comfortable beds. While, the jewish polish, had tents with bad beds, and no heating. Other than that, on page 65, it states, " In September, the german soldiers grabbed many jews in the street. They made us sing prayers while they laughed and beat us, and before letting us go, they cut off our beards. As mentions before, this was a time when germans concurred poland and captured jews which they would kill or make them work for them.
