About this creation

Between the years 1933 and 1945 more than 3.5 million Germans would be forced to spend time in these concentration camps or prison for political reasons, and approximately 77,000 Germans were executed for one or another form of resistance by Special Courts, courts martial, and the civil justice system. Many of these Germans had served in government, the military, or in civil positions, which enabled them to engage in subversion and conspiracy against the Nazis.



Although many people refer to all Nazi camps as "concentration camps," there were actually a number of different kinds of camps, including concentration camps, extermination camps, labor camps, prisoner-of-war camps, and transit camps.



Many of prisoners died in the concentration camps through deliberate maltreatment, disease, starvation, and overwork, or were executed as unfit for labor.









The formal mass-killing method at an extermination camp was poison gas (made to order by the IG Farben chemicals company); besides gas chambers, the camp guards continued killing prisoners via mass shooting, starvation, torture, et cetera.









* It is estimated that 11 million people were killed during the Holocaust. Six million of these were Jews.
* The Nazis killed approximately two-thirds of all Jews living in Europe.
* An estimated 1.1 million children were murdered in the Holocaust.

The camps were liberated by the Allies between 1943 and 1945, often too late to save all the remaining prisoners. For example, when British forces entered Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in 1945, 60,000 prisoners were found alive, but 10,000 died within a week of liberation due to typhus and malnutrition.

Are you really trying to make me MAD!!!!! Why would you do that. Making a lego of something that was HORRIBLE. And very brutal for the Jewish people. Thats nothing to be joking about. Please comment back.

Hey Yoshi, Many people have seen my Tribute to America series and they say how it touched them. This is so emotionally real and uncomfortably disconcerting. Thank you for helping us not to forget. Already there are many schools that are pushing to say that the holocaust never happened. Anywho, about the build. Love uses of the string elements. Great ideas with the clone faces or as I say cancer heads;) I am planning to spend a little time in WW2 with my TTA series. Thank you Yoshi for this incredible build. May we not forget. ~Blake

This would be sensational, if it wasnt because Zbigniew Libera did almost the same many years ago. As a MOC I find it very good, but as the topic is SO touchy, it would be nice if you stated your direct intent and purpose for the MOC in your presentation text. If the purpose is to never forget the atroceties comitted during the WWII, or any war for that matter, by both winning and loosing sides for that matter, then I agree...

As crude as it was. Terribly real and a memorial to remind us not to forget. Congratulations!

You've created a masterpiece. This is not merely an amazing work of art made from LEGO® bricks, but it is also a monument to a time that should never be forgotten. This is one of the best LEGO® creations I have ever seen, and you handled every bit wonderfully. Thank you for sharing.

Gute Aufarbeitung eines sehr ernsten Themas. Mir gefällt die beinahe industrielle Kälte die du mit diesem Moc transportierst.

Quoting Flare . Excuse me, you only mention that "Germans" were murdered in the execution camps, but how about the Jews, Gypsies, and Africans? I think you are missing a vital point. And how about the women and children? They killed many women and children as well. This is a good MOC, but fairly inaccurate. Sorry to sound rude, but you're missing a large and important point. More Jews were cruelly murdered than random Germans.
Sorry Flare, I'm still in the process of editing it so I appreciate your input. I understand this is a touchy subject and will correct soon.
