These events mark one of the darkest days of human history. Rudolf Hoss, one of the leaders of the camp, during the Nuremburg trials estimated that nearly three million people may have died in this network of death camps. These numbers have been revised. It is now estimated that one million people died in Auschwitz and ninety percent of them were Jews. In view of this incredible evil, there can be many amazing and important thesis statements. Let me give you a few of them.
It is too easy to assume the innate goodness of people. However, in the face of the evils of Auschwitz, we need a more realistic picture of the human condition.
Here is another thesis.
It is easy to be a pacifist and say that all fighting is wrong, but there are times in history where one needs to fight, defend the weak, and take a stand. If we learn anything from Auschwitz, it is that indifference is not an option.
Good luck on this very important paper.
