21C 8th grade Reflections on Washington D.C. Part One

The 9/11 is brutal, but not as brutal as the Holocaust. The Holocaust was a tragic event, since the Holocaust killed over six million people.

How did you feel before/after going to the Holocaust Memorial Museum?

I know that the Holocaust is a day that Jews celebrate to remember the day that Nazis attacked and to also remember the things they have lost along the way.

Drex Panelo: Compare and contrast the Holocaust Museum and the 9/11 Pentagon Memorial

The 9/11 is brutal, but not as brutal as the Holocaust. The Holocaust was a tragic event, since the Holocaust killed over six million people.

Keshawn Roberts: How did you feel before/after going to the Holocaust Memorial Museum?

I know that the Holocaust is a day that Jews celebrate to remember the day that Nazis attacked and to also remember the things they have lost along the way. I feel that the Holocaust is an event of remembrance. I am not a Jew but I could imagine the pain and suffering they went through. I also feel that the Holocaust was cruel to Jews and all the terrible hardships they had to go through in order to become a stronger people.

Compare and contrast the Holocaust Memorial Museum and the 9/11 Pentagon Memorial

The Holocaust and the 9/11 Pentagon Memorial both have memorials that represent the people who died. Also, in both instances children were killed. These events were both crimes against humans. Both these events brought the world to a standstill. Each event targeted people and their culture. People who were different were attacked.

Tierra Kellom: How did you feel before/after going to the Holocaust Memorial Museum?

I have learned some about the Holocaust, although I don’t know everything I would have not wanted to be a Jew back then. The Jews were not treated equally; specifically they had no type of freedom.

After visiting the Holocaust Memorial Museum, I certainly feel different. I saw how they suffered and struggled.

Dominique Adams: How did you feel before/after going to the Holocaust Memorial Museum?

Right now I feel that the Holocaust was very horrible and the Jews were being treated differently because of their religion. The German soldiers would take the Jewish people to large pits and kill them. Germans also separated the Jews from their families and the German people. They would also search homes of some Germans if they suspected they were letting Jewish people hide out.

After the museum I learned that Jews were set in shoals and burned. Most people were keeping the shoes of their fellow family members in memory of their lives. The Holocaust is in some way related to 9/11, because of the people that held them hostage on the plane. Adolf Hitler had proclaimed that all Jews were to be killed when he came to power.

Beyonce Paige: How did you feel before/after going to the Holocaust Memorial Museum?

What I learned about the Holocaust is how the Nazis treated the Jew differently from everyone else. They event put them in gas chambers to burn. Also there were a lot of ghettos. Before I go to the Holocaust I feel nervous about all the stuff that happened.

Valinda Hughes: How did you feel before/after going to the Holocaust Memorial Museum?

The Holocaust to me was a very brutal thing that happened in the 1940s. I didn’t understand quite why they did it except for the following German king-disliking the Jews. They killed Jews by putting them in gas chambers and burning their remains. The six-pointed star is a symbol of the Jewish people and religion.

After I left the museum I learned about more events. They were very descriptive and most things I didn’t know. There was more than just one area where they starved Jews.

The Holocaust and 9/11 are alike because they are both brutal events. A bunch of people lives were taken for completely no reason. Only if people cared enough for each other none of this would have happened. They should treat others the way they want to be treated. Both events are bad but I believe the Holocaust was the worst.
