The Holocaust was horrible. This shocking genocide left millions of people dead, thousands in mental or physical pain, and affected current society in a negative way. In total, eleven million were executed and many more will forever remain traumatized.
The survivors of Holocaust still face long-term effects. The Holocaust continues to disturb everyone who was exposed to it. According to Elie Wiese (1978), survivors experience terrifying flashbacks and insecurities control their physiologic mind.
