Well, it depended on who you were and where you were. A Jew just released from a camp tried to contact friends and family members that were taken to other camps. They and others tried to publish books on the Holocaust to prevent it from happening again and giving us a constant reminder. Some of the texts were too gruesome or sad to print at the time so they kept trying. Some never found any survivors of their families, but heard what had happened to them (gunned down, escaped then re-captured and killed by dogs, burned in the incinerator/gas chambers, etc.). If you were a Nazi or guard and were arrested by the US you were tried in court. Some are still waiting to be found and tried. Other German Nazis that were captured as POWs during the war were also put on trial.

__Very few of the guilty were put on trial.
  • Europe lost nearly two-thirds of its Jews (about 6 million out of a pre-war total of about 9.4 million).
  • Large areas of Eastern Europe had previously had flourishing Jewish communities - Warsaw, Lodz, Lviv (Lemberg), Vilnius, Riga, Czernowitz, Minsk, Kiev, Odessa - to name some of the bigger and best known. All these centres had gone, for ever. A simple example: in 1939, just before the start of World War 2, Lodz had a Jewish population of about 215,000. After the Holocaust about 800 Jews were left in Lodz. A small trickle of further survivors found their way back in the following months. This may help people understand something of the scale of human devastation caused, and why this is called the Holocaust.
  • There had been large pre-Nazi Jewish communities of Central Europe - Berlin, Prague, Vienna, Budapest - to name only the best known and biggest. These were destroyed.
  • There was increased determination among Jews in the then British Mandate of Palestine and among Holocaust survivors to establish Israel. However, they had to fight for the creation of Israel. It was not some consolation given by the guilt-ridden victors.
  • On an individual level, survivors needed help to regain their health. Many of course needed longer term help, too.

Sadly there were millions of people who passed in these "concentration camps", 6 million Jews died, 18 sovients and many more, my grandfather was in the us air corps and was shot down in a b24, on a sucicide mission (by that I mean it was a long flight in a plane with nothing but gas, bombs, and ten men who faced a near impossible mission in an effort to cut 60 of Nazi fuel. The planes were unescorted, and Nazis had many hiding anti aircraft gun hidden. They knew we were on our way. Those brave souls droped their bombs on oil refineries and fuel storage tanks fly100 feet above ground, to low to to para chute, numerous pilots who knew there plane would crash decided to hit a target head on. Of the very few lucky who survived the almost certain explosion were shot down on the way home. He parachuted, and has in a soviet camp, and saw first hand, no one was purposely burn alive, the gas chamber or letal does of morprine was generally "mercy killings" all of Europe starved and its a sad fact that very few women survived, but Warsaw was the cultural center, of jewish culture and most deaths were from the winter and diseases in poland, the food ration in Germany was 500 cal a day for front line fighters. USA produced nearly all food during this period and allied forces were guilty of more "war crimes" than the germans, I live in California where the Japanese American were "evacuated to relocation centers", that had electric wire and guards with machine guns, and the building center in California was almost identical to to Danzig or any other concentration camp, most countries unwilling to accept more than token numbers of Jews, the us and Cuba sent 2000 people away back to Germany. The war has a continuing effect everyday and will most likely result in another world over isreal/palistin and the other wars and insurrections to this day. Very few wanted to be involved but were, my grandfather tried numerous escapes on the last one he was caught by the emaciated 15 year old child guard who aimed his gun and couldn't fire, the guard was lated repatriated with my pow grandfather as his sponsor, by the way uk started bombing civilian to break civilian moral, and america fire bombed Dresden, and open city (no military necessity) killing more civilians in one night than were

Killed in Nagasaki and Hiroshima, as for the Medical experiments many horrendous, but most were to were to he keep Jews and the 15 other groups (disabled, gypsies, etc) alive the major cause of mass death was starvation, or deadly disease that spread quickly if not treated or removed, they fouls cures for malaria, typhoidism, must gas (recently declassified but mustard gas is painful and like torture, very few die from it because it cause 1st and 2nd degree burns that take longer to heal, thus was banned after the great war or first world was but and america ship at dock in italy was bombed and 63 of some 380-400 died, from our own mustard that the civilized worlds agreed

Not to use. Burning is a legal wartime measure, if used correctly, like American marines using flame trowers to clear tunnels in the (god bless person who lived during the war. Noone wants to kill and people need to learn from the past. Winners write history. I love the Torah and it a great moral base and family and community builder. By and while he talk of slave labor camps we paid japs only

A fraction what could

Have gotten in the open markets 16$ a month, remember have more people "cower retreat or they the this and race.

If you mean effect on people, it was a Horror. For Jewish people, it was maddening realizing the damage that had been done to their families and to everyone else. Nothing helped them really. It was all traumatizing. Witnessing brutal torture, the murder of many other people, and torturous screams of the dying.

When World War II erupted in 1939, Americans believed the extremities of the war laid in the hands of the fallen solders. Not until the last stages of war in 1943, would Americans discover Hitler’s “final solution to the Jewish question”, which was the extermination of not only Jews, but Gypsies, homosexuals, and anyone deemed an “inferior race”. The Holocaust would prove to effect all aspects of life, including, Germany’s political, social, and historical reputation which was previously known for having an outstanding education system at all levels, especially from 1880-1933, when it was the world leader in scientific and academic research. The Holocaust transformed the world by socially displaying the ultimate form of racism, politically creating new agencies in response, and historically changing the view of the Germans in the eyes of the world.

Beginning in 1933, Nazis under the command of Hitler, began murdering as many Jews as possible, along with whomever Hitler deemed “undesirable”. Hitler believed that the Jews were the cause for all the troubles in the world and believed they stood in the way of his “master race”, which was a tall, blonde haired, blue eyed human. A distinctive feature of Nazi genocide was the extensive use of human subjects in "medical" experiments. The most notorious of these physicians was Dr. Josef Mengele, who worked in Auschwitz. His experiments included placing subjects in pressure chambers, testing drugs on them, freezing them, attempting to change eye color by injecting chemicals into children's eyes, and various amputations and other surgeries. Another form of Hitler’s atrocities were his concentration camps he established for prisoners and the “undesirable”. Though the death rate in the concentration camps was high, with a mortality rate of 50%, they were not designed to be killing centers. (By 1942, six large extermination camps had been established in Nazi-occupied Poland, which were built solely for mass killings.) After 1939, the camps increasingly became places where Jews and POWs were killed or made to work as slave laborers, undernourished and tortured. It is estimated that the Germans established 15,000 camps and sub camps in the occupied countries, mostly in Eastern Europe. New camps were founded in areas with large Jewish, Polish intelligentsia, communist, or Roma and Sinti populations, including inside Germany. The transportation of prisoners was often carried out under horrifying conditions using rail freight cars, in which many died before reaching their destination.

Politically, during the war, the U.S. government revealed very little as to the true extent of the atrocities occurring in the concentration camps. Liberal magazines such as the Nation, attempted to display the horrifying reality of the Holocaust, but major newspapers such as the New York Times and Time Magazine depicted the Nazi genocide as minor news. Leaders of the American Jewish community, who were better educated on the action carried out by the Nazis, had sent numerous petitions to Roosevelt asking him to allow the German Jews to immigrate to the United States for safety: both Congress and Roosevelt denied their petitions. Finally, in 1944, Roosevelt an executive order creating the War Refugee Board, which provided aid to victims of Nazi Germany. Finally when solders invaded the concentration camps, the true extent of Nazi depravity was revealed to the American public. Since the League of Nations had failed in preventing a second world war, the United Nations was formed. The European Union was also formed after World War II. Actually, they began to work on it before the war even began, but it didn't have any real steam until Europe wanted to heal the wounds of the war. So they formed the European Union, which got its leg up when Churchill gave support for it a year after World War II ended.

After World War II, instead of reprimanding Germany, the victorious Allies made every effort to help rebuild Germany and to re-establish a strong government and a strong economy (this was true in West Germany in particular, in East Germany the Soviets were not quite so forgiving). The Allies used vast amounts of economic aid (under a program called the Marshall Plan) to rebuild German industry and infrastructure. In a sense, this was a reflection of a different philosophy regarding who was actually responsible for the war. After the First WW, the allies essentially tried to hold the entire German nation responsible for the war. After the Second WW, they only held the leaders of Germany responsible, not the entire nation. Also, upon the ending of the Second World War, the Allies, France, Great Britain, the United States, and the Soviet Union, arrived to occupy the war-torn and defeated Germany. The Allies viewed themselves as the “victors” as opposed to the liberators of the German people. Security of the Allies and reconstruction were the two main concerns of the victors. Actions made in order to fulfill these two goals, as well as the effects of war itself made for a difficult life for the Germans which in no way mirrored the country in the pre-war era. To fulfill the first goal of security, the Allies arrested people whom they believed threatened security. In 1945, The United States made 117,500 arrests, Britain 90,000-100,000, French 21,500, and the Soviet Union 122,671 (of which 42,889 died in internment camps and 766 were executed). Prisoners of War taken by British and Americans were relatively lucky as the majority survived and were released by 1948. The USSR on the other hand took their POWs and deported them to the Soviet Union where the last ones returned in 1955; many still remain unaccounted for. The Allies imposed strict curfews and confiscated items that were deemed a threat to their lives.

Many Jews were placed in DPs or Displaced Persons camps after they were liberated. Germans were held in trial for the murderous rampage they went on. Many Jews were dead after the Holocaust. The Germans had literally almost pushed the Jews to extinction. Many countries also sued Germany for the destruction done.
