The document that I summarized broadened my understanding of the Holocaust. In the part of the trial transcripts I prepared and summarized there was a lot of talking about what the individuals on trial did to the prisoners. The defendants knew that they did but they did not want to pay for what they did. They admitted to killing several people. They mistreated everyone. The prisoners that testified made me realize that it was hard to live in the camp and not know what was happening. I knew what happened, but the trial transcripts I summarized helped me realize that even people in the local villages were put in the camps. It was hard to get through in many parts, but I am so glad I was smart enough to take this class. I hope this never happens again. I hope we can learn from our mistakes.
