Holocaust By: Stephanie Meneses and Taylor Zimmerman
Anne Frank • Anne Frank was born ,June 12, 1929, into a very stable family consisting of her father, Otto Frank; her mother, Edith Frank; and her older sister Margot Frank. The family lived in peace and comfort until the start of WWII. With Germany declaring war against pretty much the world, her family moved to the Netherlands in search of refuge. They were well received and Otto soon began his own jam/jelly making company. This tranquility , however, did not last very long as Germany soon invaded the Netherlands. After learning of the mass murder of Jews by the hands of Nazi's ,Adolf Hitler, they decided to go hiding into the ‘’Secret Annex” in 1942, which was a secret part of the building of her father’s Jelly company (Dutch Opekta Company). After two years of living in the Secret Annex it all went wrong, all of the families hiding with the Franks were arrested and moved to a concentration camp called Westerbork then transferred to Auschwitz. In 1945, Anne and Margot both went to Bergen-Belson and later on Anne Frank then died at the age of 15 in March. This is Anne Frank sitting at her desk in school (Netherlands) in 1940.
Miep Gies • Miep Gies was born on February 15, 1909 in Vienna, Austria. She was sent, like many other children convalescing from tuberculosis and malnutrition, to live with a Dutch family in the Netherlands. Loving the ambient, Miep received permission from her parents and foster family to stay in the Netherlands. In 1993, she was hired to work as a secretary for Otto Frank at Opekta. Miep and her husband, Jan Gies, often visited the Frank family and were soon considered one of their own. This strong friendship was later put into action in June, 1942, when Otto asked Miep for aid in helping the Frank family go into hiding. She didn’t think twice and immediately helped the family. She would often deliver food, clothing or trinkets when she would frequently visit.
Holocaust Pictures To think that innocent human beings were in something that looks like a horse stable is quite heart breaking. This picture of the Concentration Camp Auschwitz Why do we use historical pictures as a resource for information? It really gives you more than word just a great depiction of what it really looked like. These are some Jewish men awaiting their death in a gas van at the Chelmno death camp. ~Just by looking at this picture the men look defeated and just look like they have already given up a long time ago.
What is a Genocide? • Genocide- to purposely kill a large group of people, especially those of a particular ethnic group. • Hotel Rwanda – Hutus and the Tutsi were at war killing each other • Armenian Genocide-After WWI, this was basically the extermination of Armenians from the Ottoman Empire (it was believed that there was 1 to 1.5 million Armenians that were killed).
Poems The Song of the Eighteen Dead A cell is but six feet long and hardly six feet wide, yet smaller is the patch of ground, that I now do not yet know, but where I nameless come to lie, my comrades all and one, we eighteen were in number then, none shall the evening see come. Q: What is the poem's name and who is the author? A: The poem is called The Song of the Eighteen Dead and the author is Jan Camper. Q: Why did this particular poem "strike" you?

A: I felt overwhelmed at the thought of my comrades in such a situation and could imagine the small cell, rusty, with little space. Q: What is the most moving line(s) in the poem?
