The Final Solution Essay

1031 words - 5 pages

Running head: THE HOLOCAUST
The Holocaust: The Nazi’s Final Solution
Scott Gable
James Madison High School


Objectively, when someone hears the term "The Final Solution" there is a good chance that they will think of world war two. It's said to be under the rule of Adolf Hitler; this so-called "solution" was the persecution and segregation of the Jews and was implemented in stages. After the Nazi party achieved power in Germany in 1933, there was a nationwide campaign aimed to systematically isolate Jews from society and drive them out of the country. The final solution was an intricate disguise of mass murder and an act of inhumane and selfish means for acting out ...view middle of the document...

The following is yet another account: Their clothes were in rags, teaming with lice, and both inside and outside the huts was an almost continuous carpet of dead bodies, human excreta, rags, and filth.
The long range psychological effects of the Holocaust on the mental health of survivors are indeed complex as well as downright unfair. There can be no doubt that profound shock enveloped those arriving at the death camps. What had once been only rumor was, in fact, truth. Shock was followed by apathy. Also, in general, the senses became heightened, and one lived as a hunted animal, always on the alert for danger. Any aggressive, vengeful impulse had to be constantly suppressed, thus a paranoid attitude could become deeply rooted. Apathy was a period filled with extreme danger, any new arrival, who was already exhausted from the dehumanizing conditions of his transport or the ghettos, which remained in shock for any length of time, would surely be killed. And if he retreated into himself for too long, he would be shunned by other prisoners, and would be thus deprived of their support.
One way survivors coped with the prolonged horrors of the holocaust was to sustain the hope of reuniting with their families. Upon liberation, however, most of them were confronted not only with the discovery that their family members and friends had not survived, but also sometimes with the horrible circumstances of their deaths. Many survivors, when physically able, returned to their home towns only to find their property destroyed or taken over, their pre-war neighbors indifferent or hostile, and their communities obliterated. While some did find a few surviving relatives, others either never discovered what happened to their loved ones or learned that every single Jewish person they had ever known before the war had been murdered. Unable to fully comprehend their tragedy or to express their grief or rage, the survivors still had to undertake the task of rebuilding their lives. As they began these new lives, living conditions were often...

This is the measure of concentration that has the most relevance to physiological systems because it more accurately describes the ratio of solute to solvent (water)- the important driving force in
