Management Changes and Challenges to Preserve Holocaust Extermination Site



    () (University of West Timisoara, Timisoara, Romania)


The Holocaust is named for the systematic, bureaucratic, well-organized murder and genocide of over 6,000,000 European Jews implemented by the Nazis and their collaborators. From 1933 to 1945, Jews were humiliated, tortured, starved, incarcerated, systematically executed, shot into mass graves, and gassed for the purpose of total annihilation—all performed under an official capacity. The most characteristic feature of the Jewish genocide is the bureaucratic organization and management of the feat, whereby besides the SS, state institutions and members of various groups were to varying degrees accomplices on account of their knowledge and responsibility—the doctors who performed medical experiments; the engineers who constructed the gas chambers and crematoriums; those who participated at the highest levels of government. Hitler could not have completed his accomplishment without the help of collaborators such as Hungarians, Ukrainians, Lithuanians, and Romanians. In addition, with countries remaining silent with screaming indifference, even turning refugees away, the Nazi machine was given an additional gateway to implement the task at hand.
