The Holocaust was sad.
This event makes me mad.
The Jews dying was unfair.
Why couldn't the Nazis and Jews share?
This was a horrible time in history
Filled with great pain and mystery.
Families got separated, people died.
Many Jew families had to hide.
January 1933, Hitler rose to power
And then Germany became sour.
Hitler built a police and military force
To destroy anyone who stood in the way of his course.
Many people were scared
But the Nazis did not care.
The Nazis packed the Jews away
In boxcars one day.
They were sent to bad places
Filled with sad faces.
Those Jews were tortured and killed
As the concentration camps began to build.
Nazis would send the weak Jews to "shower"
In the gas chambers every hour.
The war ended in 1945
With barely any Jews alive.
The Holocaust will never be forgotten
Because this event was very rotten.

This poem was ok. I have alot of questions. First, when did the hlocaust end specificly? Why did Hitler want this power and lead germans to victory? Also, you have alot of vague nouns and you have alot of dull adjectives. For example, the holocaust was bad. Lts of people died. Maybe put how old they were better adjectives describing this and fix the ending, not to fond of it was very rotten.
