Race or Religion?
Jews were determined by their backgrounds. They were traced all the way back to their grand parents and great grand parents. They were required to hand in paper work when the Nazis came to each town. They had to prove they were Aryan all the way back to 1750. It was said that later on the Jews were determined by their isolation in the ghettos.
It depends, if you say they you not a Christian there has to be a reason to why they would say something like that. Anyone can say they are or their not a Christian. Only God really knows if that person is truly a Christian or not. Being a Christian is your choice and your choice only. In our eyes to be Christian you should believe in God and practice the faith. The "Torah" forbids a Jewish man to marry a Gentile woman, and if he does, his children will not be Jewish. If the women is Jewish and she marries a Gentile man her children with be Jewish. Some of the survivors probably didn't even have homes to go back to anymore. Some might have went back but all of them didn't. In a way it probably did help them get stronger. After everything they were put through wouldn't that make you stronger as a person? We think if we were in their shoes it would be very hard to get over what we went through, but in the end you realize you made it and that has to make you a little bit stronger.
