Holocaust Takes a Turn

The tragedy takes a turn for the worst with the “final solution” Letter to the Editor

Concentration camps in Poland

The Holocaust first began January 1933 when Hitler became chancellor of Germany. He has been discriminating against the Jews and other groups of people. Since then Hitlers plans have taken a very disturbing and terrible turn. In the year he became chancellor, Hitler had built the first extermination camp where Jews would be held. In this camp they were forced to do labor and were tortured. In the next few years five other camps had been built and were in use. for years these camps have been in !use for the Jews and other people whom the Nazis were against. Recently Hitler has

decided on a “Final Solution”. Killing the Jews. They built camps for the purpose of killing thousands of people every day. Days ago these camps were discovered and shut down. The horrors of these places were discovered. Thousands of people would be shipped there by train, stripped of their valuables, then gassed in large chambers. Survivors of these camps are being put into refugee camps and have a long road to recovery. The police and currently trying to find Hitler, but no sightings have been reported yet.

Dear Editor, I have some thoughts about the Holocaust. I think that it is the right thing to do. The Jews are a race that is not pure and should be eliminated from Germany. They are an inferior race who I do not consider to be people. I believe that all of my countries problems were because of them. Our lack of food, robbery, murder, and shortage of goods should all be blamed on them. Sincerely, Hitler

Advice !om the Editor

Dear Editor, I have a little problem. Well actually its not that little. I’m a parachuter from England and I fly with my best friend Maddie. I was on a mission with her going to Germany. Long story short she was flying when the plane got shot and I had to parachute out of the plane and ended up on Nazi territory. Pretty much they captured me and now I’m being force to tell them

about my mission. Either that or I get shot. I don’t know whether to give into them or keep my information. Please help, Verity

Dear Verity, wow thats quite a problem you have there! Do you know where Maddie is at the moment? I do hope she’s not in trouble. But back to you. I would suggest that you keep your information to yourself because in the long run it will be better that way. I wish I could help more but I’m not sure what else I could do. ! Good luck, Editor

OBITUARY

Recently we lost Leslie Howard (1893–1943) who was an actor, director and producer. He died when the flight he was in crashed into the Bay of Biscay. His most well known work was Gone With the Wind in which he played Ashley Wilkes. His work was spectacular and he will be dearly missed.
