Holocaust Reflection Essays


Even though I know a lot about holocaust, since I am Jewish, Russian, my grandparents told me a lot about it, my grandparents actually were fighting the war, and lots of my relatives were killed, I learned a lot of new interesting things that I never knew before. I think that it is great that such web sites exist and that people actually remember what happened and also try to help to reward what Jewish people had lost. Also I think that everybody should learn about it, especially Jewish people, and take their time thinking through what happened asking questions like why did that happen, why were Jewish people so unlucky, and how not to let it happen again. Every nation on the globe should learn from the passed experience of the WWII and never let it to happen again. I also really appreciate that holocaust is being taught in schools.

From the things I read I found some clarification on the topics that were not clear to me. For example I did not know much about Jewish resistance and that it actually existed. So I updated my knowledge. I also learned that there were trials after the war had ended and that Nazi people were prosecuted. I learned more about the political situation in Germany at that time. I learned that even after the war Jewish people were highly oppressed. I learned a lot of details about concentration and extermination camps.
