HALOCUST





Prejudice was the main factor that led to the holocaust. For some, resisting these forms
of oppression was survival. Considering the dehumanizing the Nazis had forced upon the
Jews, people took whatever courage and strength they had to get through this period of
time. I believe luck also had a part to play in survival. Even though now prejudice is
mostly name calling, 60 years ago it could mean death. Whether one is resisting the Nazis
or just resisting prejudice in general, one must never give up what they truly think and
believe.


If the collection of the Jews occurred when I was in Europe, I would have resisted to a
point. I would not want to put myself in grave danger. I would have hide in
people’s attics, but if caught I would not flee. That would be worse than going to a
concentration camp. For I would rather take my chance in a “deathcamp” then
run away from the Gestapo.
