The Holocaust vs. the Rwanda Genocide The Jewish Holocaust was the murdering of approximately six million European Jews. This horrific event occurred during World War II. The Holocaust was a program of systematic state-sponsored murder by Nazi Germany, led by Adolf Hitler, throughout Nazi-occupied territory. Of the nine million Jews who had resided in Europe before the Holocaust, approximately two-thirds perished. This plan of persecution and discrimination was carried out in multiple stages.
In 1923 he led an unsuccessful coup attempt known as a putsch in Munich. He was sent to prison where he wrote Mein Kampt (my struggle), which outlined his beliefs. Hitler’s beliefs: * Hitler was anti- Semitic (hatred of Jews). He blamed them for all Germany’s problems. * He believed Germans belonged to the master race.
The Holocaust started with Kristallnacht, which is “the Night of Broken Glass.” This occurred on November 7th, 1938. Over 7,000 Jewish shops were vandalized, synagogues were destroyed, and at least 91 people died. Many Jews were sent to concentration camps, but were released eventually. From 1933 to 1945, Jews were sent to concentration camps, these were used as a way to exterminate the Jewish population. In the beginning of the Holocaust, many people were sent to labor camps but died of infections or from working so much.
On the night of November 9, 1938, violence against Jews broke out across the Reich. It appeared to be unplanned, set off by Germans' anger over the assassination of a German official in Paris at the hands of a Jewish teenager. During the Holocaust, six million Jews were murdered while others were thrown out of their homes with nowhere to go, hundreds became homeless and sick. One of the most significant events that took place during this time is called Kristallnacht. This is better known as, "the night of broken glass".

The Holocaust museums takes the viewer into the life of a Jew during these darker times.
He started an organised persecution of Jews in Germany which would eventually spread across Europe.  The prejudice towards Jews gradually developed and laws were formed: propaganda against the Jews was released, Nuremberg laws were introduced, Kristallnacht was released, wearing the yellow David star for recognition, being forced to live in ghettos, then labour camps, bodies used for medical experiments, and eventually, the harshest and cruelest death camps. At the end of WWII, over 6 million Jews were killed.  I disagree the most with Rubenstein’s response because he said after the Holocaust God of Jews doesn’t exist. He says the whole experience of Holocaust has totally crushed the traditional Judaic concept on God, especially as God of the covenant with Abraham.
It evolved around 1933 and 1945. The Holocaust was a time of discrimination against Jews. They were taken away from their communities and humiliated in front of everyone, then they were sent to camps were they were made to work hard, have hardly any food and they were being treated as if they were not human beings. At the end of the Second World War, six million Jews had been killed and one and half million were children. But not just the Jews were involved in the Holocaust.
