The existence of the extermination camps was also known in outline, though many Germans didn't want to know about the Holocaust and took the line of 'hear no evil, hear no evil'.Answer #2On the other hand even opponents of the regime (like Anna Seghers) are reporting that the concentration camps were declared as "correction camps" for dangerous individuals... fact is, nobody can really say how much this or that German knew about all this... I can hardly believe it when they say they didn't know anything - in the same time I can imagine the soldiers of the Wehrmacht, hurrying from one place to another were surprised - as they reported themselves - when they heard the rumours later on... some of them didn't see deportations, etc. and burning bodies could be covered by saying "we burn our deads after the bomber attacks" later in war.
So it's hard to say - the first answer gives an important idea. It's of course true that some people that had delivered their own family members or neighbours to GESTAPO (secret state police) pretended later they didn't know anything about that. But it wouldn't be correct to call a German a liar if he/she would tell you, they didn't know what happened - it's just hard to say...Further pointsObviously, the Nazi regime tried hard to keep the genocide of the Jews secret, but some information did get out, for example, some soldiers home on leave from the Eastern Front, did talk a little about mass shootings and so on.
As for the ordinary concentration camps, they were feared.
On the more general issue of what was known, here is what the historian Helga Grebing (born in 1930) wrote in an early, respected short history of the Nazi period:
'Protective custody, the concentration camps, the boycott of Jewish businesses, etc., emigration, persecution, the Yellow Star, the treatment of prisoners of war and slave labourers from Eastern Europe - nobody who lived in the Third Reich can claim to have known nothing, absolutely nothing, about all that'. [â€¦]
'In 1945 the mass of silent, inconspicuous fellow-travellers claimed never to have had anything to do with Nazism'.
Helga Grebing, Der Nationalsozialismus: Ursprung und Wesen, GÃ¼nther Olzog Verlag, Munich, 1964 pp. 130-31. (First published in 1959).
So the people of Europe and Germany in special would not know what was happening to them. The Nazi's made everybody believe the Jews would be send to working camps, but we know better now. A few camps truly were working camps with humane conditions, however they were only used to make propaganda movies. These movies would make the people believe that nothing bad was happening to the Jews and also even worse, would make Jews turn themselves in to Nazi-search parties because they thought the conditions weren't that bad after all. A final reason is the effect on the German army itself. Before the camps German soldiers had to mass execute the Jews. Ofcourse this would lead to trauma and demoralisation, effects the Nazi's didn't want.
if you mean what happened after Germany after they were being invaded, then i can answer you. after people fond out, they were ging to come to invade the German armies and rescue the survivors from the camps. and if it wasnt to late for some of the camps, they tried killing as many of the people in the camps as possible. and the u.s army made the Germans walk through the camps to make them see what it was that was happening. because many didnt know. or they lied saying that they didnt know. then it came to an end for Hitler. when he found out that he was going to be killed, he poisned his wife and dog and shot himself. hope this answers your question.
i think it can help people by letting them know whats coming so they can be prepare,and also for them to know whats happening around them. i think it can help people by letting them know whats coming so they can be prepare,and also for them to know whats happening around them. i think it can help people by letting them know whats coming so they can be prepare,and also for them to know whats happening around them.
They knew that Jews were being rounded up and deported to death camps but there was nothing they could really do to stop it. The camps were all deep in side German held territory mainly in eastern Europe. The full scale of the horror was not know by the Allies until camps were liberated by the Russans, British and Americans in 1945.
they were sent into camps were the Jews were separated from the 'normal' people. Then they were sent to torture camps but they didnt know this. the Nazis said they were holiday camps, but they were not. they were starved, tested on and somtimes shot for the sake of it. Then they were gased and killed.
