My phrase was concentration camps. What a concentration camp was during the Holocaust simply meant a place where they held Jews and forced them to do labors each and every day, they fed them very little, basically they were tortured and failure to comply with the Germans meant that you would either be severely beaten or even shot. I didn't learn much from my term because it was one I was already framiliar with. I found this information on a couple of different websites.

My word was Death Marches. A death march was when prisoners from concentration camps had to walk for miles and miles through terrible conditions and were beaten by the guards that surrounded them. Eventually they would die from being mistreated or they would be shot. I found this information on http://fcit.usf.edu

The word I researched was Gypsies. Gypsies are a laborer who moves place to place because of employment demands. I learned they were the second most killed people besides the Jews. They originated out of Roam and became travelers throughout Europe. Gypsies are well known for their music, bright clothing, and their arts. I found this information from a couple different websites.

The word I phrase I researched was final solution. This is the mass murder of Jews under the Nazi regime from 1941-1945. I learned that they used the term final solution to refer to their plan to annihilate the Jews, in a more discrete way. I found this information from a lot of different websites.

The word that I got was Swastika. A swastika is an emblem representing 2 S's that the Nazi's had. I learned that this emblem has been used by many people even going back until the ancient Egyptians. It is a symbol of good but after the Holocaust people see it as a symbol of evil.
