VIII Международный конкурс работ школьников, студентов и преподавателей "Память о Холокосте - путь к толерантности" ЭССЕ НА АНГЛИЙСКОМ ЯЗЫКЕ "ТРАГЕДИЯ ХОЛОКОСТА - ДОЛЖНЫ МЫ ДУМАТЬ ОБ ЭТОМ И ЗАЩИЩАТЬ ЕЕ ЖЕРТВ СЕГОДНЯ? ХОЛОКОСТ ВО ФРАНЦИИ" В РАМКАХ ЭЛЕКТИВНОГО КУРСА "Страноведение и культуроведение России и англо-язычных стран" Авторы: Владимир Евгеньевич Косяков, Алексей Алексеевич Попов Место учебы: МОУ лицей № 6 г. Тамбова Класс: 11 Б Учитель английского языка: Кобзева Олеся Олеговна Holocaust is one of the most famous and remarkable tragedies of World War II which is still strongly remembered. Holocaust can be translated from the ancient Greek language as "incineration" or "victim of incineration". In the modern meaning, Holocaust is the policy of Nazi Germany of total genocide of "Untermanns" - "defective" nations, such as Jews, Slavs, Gypsies, and Negroids. Millions of them were tortured in concentration camps during the war. As for France, in 1939 there were 240.000 Jews there. At the beginning of the war 20.000 of them were mobilized for the national army and additional 10.000 served as volunteers. During the following 6 years those, who were not in the army, in most cases escaped, but nearly 76.000 were killed in concentration camps. At the end of war only 3% managed to survive. Even in spite of the small number of victims, there is a memorial to them in Paris. But even now there are people who deny the existence of the Holocaust. They say that there are not enough witnesses and documents which could contain direct orders for genocide. Of course, it is obvious that all these witnesses and documents were destroyed by Nazi war criminals. Also, nowadays there are neofascists - people, who share the ideals of Nazis. A lot of people heard about the Holocaust, they do not understand the meaning of this word and the horror of this tragedy. The Holocaust is the most terrible event, which has ever happened. Some people, like skinheads have ideas that it is normal to kill foreigners, but they do not want to understand the whole tragedy of death. These ideas can lead to the next Holocaust in the world. As for me, they are just posers, who want to be "not like others", but there is a real danger of them marching the streets and killing all "colored" just because "Hitler said so". This is just madness and cannot be forgiven easily. We must remember the history and never make such terrifying mistakes in future if we want the humankind to survive.
