How were Jews tortured?

The Nazis had various methods for torturing Jews. The first torture was \nthe train transport to the camps often lasting several days without food\nor water, crowded into cattle trucks. the Jews were then split\nup and their hair was cut this was to be done naked and under the eyes \nof anyone this means girls of all ages would have had their hair cut \nwhilst naked by men who were 40 and same for men who would have had \ntheir hair cut by women Jews were not allowed to have hair so \nwhenever their hair was growing too long they would be put through the \nsame procedure again (most Jews would have been dead after 3 of them) \nafter the haircuts the Jews would be selected for gassing this meant \nthey would all be placed in a room and that mustard gas would be sprayed\non them If they survived selection for gassing, most Jews were\nslowly and systematically starved to death. This was made even worse \nbecause while they were being denied proper food, they were expected to \ndo manual labour for long hours, despite being hungry and thirsty. \nTypical rations at a camp would consist of a cup of black coffee and a \nslice of bread for breakfast. Lunch was watery soup with some added \ncereal, and supper was a cup of water and another slice of bread. Once a\nweek they might get a piece of sausage or jam, so while the food was \nnot non-existent, it was calculated to starve the Jews into corpses. \nGuards beat those prisoners who they felt were not working hard enough.\nSometimes the guards beat the prisoners for no reason at all. Prisoners\nwere routinely shot or selected for gassing for minor transgressions. \nIf the prisoners became too thin to work, then there were regular \nselections where the weak ones would be selected for gassing. Sometimes \nJews were publicly hanged at roll call time. Other Jewish \nprisoners froze to death because they were not allowed to have any warm \nclothing or protection from the elements, and winters were very harsh. \nOften the Jews were forced to get up at 2am or 3 am and stand outside \nfor a roll call (Appell) for many hours at a time in the freezing night.\nIf they fell down in roll call, they were beaten up. They were forced \nto sleep in wooden stable barracks on the floor or hard wooden boards, \noften with 3 or even 5 people in a bed. Still others were \nexperimented on by the notoriously brutal Dr. Mengele who used Jews to \ntest out his own particular scientific theories. Families were \nsplit up on arrival and the women with children plus the young and old \nselected for gassing. Sometimes the guards would pull a child from a \nmother, and swing it round, smashing the child's head onto a wall, \nkilling it. This was true of people who were about to be gassed. This \ntorture made some Jews go crazy and either attack the guards whereupon \nthey would be shot or the Jews would commit suicide by throwing \nthemselves on the electrified fence. At the end of the war,\nthe Russians were capturing Poland where most of the camps were, so the\nNazis moved the Jews back to Germany in death marches lasting days \nwithout food or water. Any person who couldn't keep up was shot. Many of\nthese Jews ended up at Bergen-Belsen which was heavily overcrowded and \nrife with typhus and had no food or water. A large number of the \nstarving Jews who survived till then, caught typhus and died. Anne Frank\nwas one such Jew who tortured at Auschwitz and died of typhus at \nBergen-Belsen. the Jewish people nor the people of Germany \nwould have known the horror that went on behind the electric fences of \nthe concerntration camps making it more horrifying when they arrived. \nthe people of Germany beleived that the camps were just a way of \nseparating Jewish society from regular society without even knowing \nabout the torture for film depictions of such torture i suggest\nthe following movies , schindlers list, the diary of anne frank, and \nthe boy in the striped pyjamas They were subject to all forms of tourture, physical uncluded direct trauma as well as starvation, both chronic and acute, suffocation, having to wear insufficient clothing and wooden cloggs. Mental included being separated from their loved ones, a lack of information, the constant threat of death. Having their religious practices disrupted.

How does it feel to be tortured?

Just as there are a number of reasons for torture, and a number ofmethods, there are many different responses to torture, dependingon the individual, his training and his motivations. Blocking painfrom physical torture is usually harder than blocking psychologicaltorture. The possible exception is sleep deprivation, which cansometimes break through the most determined mental defenses,overcoming one's intellectual resistance. Torture is often designed to compel a person to provideinformation, rather than simply make them suffer. Complicating thisfor the torturers is that they are often not *certain* that theperson being tortured actually has the information sought.

Sad, isn't it? i almost cry at the thought of my mom and brother there because i know my mom will say to let my brother live, then i would have to choose.... Answer: . Torture is about the torturer not the subject. Torture is about control over a person, a group of people, or a situation. Dictionary.com defines torture as " the act of inflicting excruciating pain, as punishment or revenge, as a means of getting a confession or information, or for sheer cruelty ." This is a literal definition, but it is only a partial one, and is not exactly correct. Recent studies examining the torturers of the past, from the Khmer Rouge Chief Interrogator at S-21 (Kaing Guek Eav) to those of the Stalin regime and Nazi Germany, new light has been shed to illuminate the fact that torturers are not the sadists they were formerly believed to be. In fact, hundreds of interviews and years of study show that sadism is antithetical to the goals of torture.. Torture is an act or series of acts used for causing pain, but the pain is not always physical. The pain can be emotional, mental or psychological, spiritual, intellectual, ethical, moral, or focused on any of the various visceral or atavistic perceptions or elements of humans. Torture is a commen event, even in the developed countries of the world today. It is not just used against terror subjects in the US or by its allies. It is used by every law enforcement agency in the world; those in the US and other similar nations just hide it better than most. This is not conjecture; this is personal experience.. The goal of torture may be for vengeance, it can be borne of paranoia, it can spring from a twisted sense of justice. Consider for a moment that a group of individuals plan for and attack a civilian target. They kill thousands of people, and destroy billions of dollars of property, crippling a portion of that nation's economy. Those involved who do not die in the attack are captured. Clear evidence exists to connect the prisoners to the act. History irrefutably shows that torture interrogations do not provide factual confessions--this is a point of science. What is then the point of torturing these prisoners? Is it to make them suffer before execution, pure vengeance? Vengeance is a hollow victory. The manner of exectution and the activities leading up to it speak more for the executioner than the condemned. If a man is condemned, his death is the goal; dead is dead. Why prolong the outcome? What purpose does it serve? Not justice. That is satisfied in the death of the condemned. An attempt at retribution for the suffering caused by the condemned person? That is satisfied by the sentence and the execution.. Torture, in what ever form, by what ever means, serves one purpose. Unfortunately, that purpose can only be known by the torturer; it is too personal for third party speculation.

Why is torture effective?

Because most people find pain to be unbearable, they will give up information in order to end the pain caused by torture. ___ The assumption made in the question is doubtful. The victim may in fact simply provide the 'information' that he/she thinks that the torturer wants . __________ Torture is effective because governments use it as an interrogation technique to provide information that will save thousands of lives, as well as the freedoms our country fought for. The one thing everyone holds dear to their heart is their life. When they have no possesions, no home, all they have left if their life. It's effective because most people will save their life in order to give up information. __________ I've spent a bit of time researching the question online and determined the apparent consensus is that torture, indeed, yields "information" of a highly variable (and thus suspect) quality. Nation states and other groups may use torture for this reason alone; simply to stimulate a prisoner into talking about a desired subject matter. But, based on accounts of experienced interrogators, there seems to be a very low degree of truth in the information acquired through torture - many prisoners preferring to simply tell the interrogators what they want to hear (perhaps given the reality that telling the truth is absolutely no guarantee the torture stops). It should be noted the body of experienced interrogators seemed to hold that skilled psychological interrogation is the preferred method due a better quality of information being offered voluntarily.
