I went to the Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles last Friday. I already knew that this tour was about the Holocaust, but what I did not know is how people were tortured by this German doctor who tried to experiment the Jews like guinea pigs and why did the U.S. did not help the Jew? Or why did not anyone do something about this? I was able to learn all this in the Museum of Tolerance. The only reason England and France started to attack Germany and began World War II is because Germany invaded Poland. Germany was also expanding their territories and also that is the second reason why England and France attacked Germany. So basically, I did not understand why so many Jews were killed they were also human beings and some people try not to see them as human being. People think they were the reason Germany lost World War I. They were blamed for crimes they did not committe, all because they were minority to the society. Jews were discriminated for a long time and Hitler is smart enough to, probably, use that excuse to tell the people in Germany that Jews are like plague. I also know that 3 million people died in Russia and 7 died in Finland. The total of Jews killed was about 6 million Jews. I counted Finland in because just like our tour guide said, “Every human being counts….”I agree with her because it does not matter what race you come from ,because you are still a human being. I remembered the tour guide told us many terrible stories about the people were dressed up for death camp to seperated the gays,gypsies,and others,and also to seperate the able-bodies or others and how the families were separated and the man doctor would try to experiment on the children and other people. I also heard one of the survivors her name was Dorothy and she managed to survive the Holocaust and was able to immigrate to America. She had a tough life by working at a young age and one of the reasons she survived was because she changed her name, and her race,so the Germans would not find out she is a Jew. My child, Noach Szejniuk, survived the extermination of the Jews. His parents found a home for him with a sympathetic Christians, who were willing to risk their lives in order to hide and save Noach. Also I read in the pamphlet that Noach’s father died, escaped to France and managed to hide in a barn, but when the Germany attacked France. The German soldier founded him and was immediately shoot to death. Noach’s mother managed to survived, she got arrested and was sent to concentration camp in the Spanish border, but she managed to escape. She held refuge in Pyrenees Mountain and then she tried to retrace her steps to find out if her son was safe. She managed to find her son living a safe and healthy life with his Christian guardians. Noach was a very lucky child to survive the Holocaust. Over one and half million Jewish children were murdered by German during the Holocaust.
I learned and reviewed many new ideas when I went to the Museum of Tolerance. I think the acts of intolerance comes from peoples’ human nature because we all know people just like us will always judge a person by their appearance, or outsiders of the society.This is just like at the end of the tour around the Museum of Tolerance we learned some of the people are judging other by the way they look and act. Although, we are not sure since this act of intolerance depends on soem people,but the acts of intoleranceare still happening today. I learned many valuable ideas that canhelp me understand more about the Holocaust.Probably, when I get older I would go back and review some of the events that happened in the Holocaust.
