The Holocaust was one of the darkest times in recent Western history. Filled with prejudices and hatred, the Nazis tried to exterminate all those they thought of as lesser than themselves. The Jews bore the brunt of the Nazis' hatred, but other groups were targeted as well: Roma, homosexuals, Jehovah's Witnesses, the physically and mentally disabled, black people, along with anyone who disagreed with the Nazis' political ideas. Approximately ten million were killed-starved, beaten, shot, and gassed. Those who survived the Holocaust spent years trying to work through what had happened to them. They had experienced brutality and dehumanization at the hands of other human beings, including their own neighbors and former friends. They had seen their parents, children, sisters, and brothers pulled away from them and sent to their deaths, or even killed in front of them. How does a person survive such a thing? How do they make themselves keep going in the face of such hatred? And, having lived, how do they deal with their pain? Can anything good come out of such an experience? Here you will read the stories of some of those who did survive the Holocaust. The things that helped them survive and the ways they have coped in the years since will speak to your own life and the situations you face every day.
