My term was Righteous Gentiles, and they were non-Jewish people that helped save Jews during the holocaust. It was against the law for these people to do this, so they were risking there lives for other people. I found my information on the internet, along with my photos. These people should be considered heroes, for there bravery of daring to save people while putting there lives at great risk.

My term was genocide. Genocide is the deliberate and systematic killing of a national group, a racial group, a political group, or a cultural group. I found pictures on the internet of the death camps and the gas chambers where Hitler and the Nazis killed thousands of Jews.

My term was gypsies, they are a group of people that originated in northwest India. Hitler considered them to be in the same category as the Jews. He felt that they were a group of people that needed to be wiped out. They were moved to special camps, just like the Jews. Around half a million gypsies were killed, that makes up almost the entire Eastern European Gypsy population. they are believed to have been killed in gas chambers. I understand that millions of Jews were killed, but I think that more people should know about the gypsies, almost all of them were killed.

My word was Propaganda. Propaganda is false or partly false information used by a government or political party intended to sway opinions of the population. I got this definition from fcit.usf.edu/holocast. Propaganda to me sounds like any form of government we have today. Like in the race for presidency. You have to lie about a lot of things you say you are going to do so that they vote and believe you.

My term was The Final Solution. This was Hitler's final plan to eliminate all Jews. He sent some to concentration camps. Others were sent to death camps. Jews in concentration camps who were ill were most likely sent to death camps.

My term was swastika. This was the symbol for the Nazi party. I got my info from fcit.usf.edu/holocast like Chris. Some things I also found out is that it was a ancient Japanese symbol that use to be on many items before the Nazi party claimed it as there own. Another thing I learned is that many people get it marked on there body and say its the Japanese symbol but they got it on wrong so it is the one that shows Nazi party.
