“The killing of some six million Jews by the Nazis during WWII. To the Nazis, the holocaust was the ‘Final Solution’ to the ‘Jewish Problem,’ and would help them establish a pure German master race. Much of the killing took place in concentration camps, such as Auschwitz and Dachau. The ‘holocaust’, a term applied by the Nazis to the genocide of European Jews during WWII. Before instituting the Final Solution, the Nazi government had abolished Jews’ rights destroyed and confiscated their property, and confined them in concentration camps.” (The New Dictionary of Cultural Literacy).
Not only was in for Jews they placed homosexuals, criminals of war, and political prisoners, and Jehovah's Witnesses. This camp killed about one million one hundred thousand people.

The people going to the left were unknowingly walking into a death trap, the Nazis would not tell the victims this to prevent them fighting back. Instead the nazis told them that they were going to be sent to work but first they had to take a shower, so the Jews were lead into this huge shower room with fake shower head and were told to strip their clothes.
The Holocaust began after a Jewish youth from Germany shot a German diplomat living in Paris. Hitler then violently persecuted Jews, using the event as an excuse. The Holocaust began with Kristallnacht, when Nazi troopers destroyed Jewish-owned property in Germany. As a result of Kristallnacht, many Jews fled Europe and went overseas to places like the U.S.A. After Kristallnacht, Hitler ordered all Jews to be segregated into ghettos, which were living areas specifically for Jews. Hitler hoped the Jews would die of starvation or from disease as the ghettos had horrible conditions.
What started with segregating Jewish people into ghetto neighborhoods to isolate them for the rest was actually his master plan for the planned murder of any and all Jews in Nazi Europe. His plan was referred to as the "Final Solution". After invading Poland in 1939 and Russian in 1941, Hitler order concentration camps be

Throughout the Second World War the chancellor of Germany allowed the brutal murderers of over six million Jewish German citizens. The killing of the innocent people took place in concentration camps in the span of a few years. Two infamous death camps were Auschwitz two Birkenau and Mauthausen. Even though Birkenau and Muahthausen had differences, they both are historically some of the worst concentration camps of the Holocaust.
The Holocaust The Holocaust (1) all started with one crazy German Nazi named Adolf Hitler. Hitler started the holocaust to start a scapegoat due to the repercussions due to World War 1. After World War 1 Germany was forced to pay for all the damages in all the places that they had invaded which had put them in an economic crisis. Hitler decided to pin the Jews at the root of all of Germany’s problems. He aimed his violence towards Jews, but not just Jews it was also towards outsiders like communists, gypsies, Jehovah Witnesses, and homosexuals.
“Holocaust” is a word of Greek origin meaning “sacrifice by fire”. The Nazis who came to power in Germany in January 1933 believed that Germans were “racially superior” and the Jews, deemed “inferior”, were an alien threat to the so called German racial community. (Holocaust) Writing the era of the Holocaust, German authorities also targeted other groups because of their perceived “racial inferiority” groups such as Gypsies, disabled and also the
Holocaust happened because Hitler and the Nazis were racist. They believed the German people were a 'master race', who were superior to others. They even created a league table of 'races' with the Aryans at the top and with Jews, Gypsies and black people at the bottom. These 'inferior' people were seen as a threat to the purity and strength of the German nation. When the Nazis came to power they persecuted these people, took away their human rights and eventually decided that they should be exterminated.
He believed that Jewish people were inferior to other human begins. Hitler beliefs and ideas caused him to create an army called the Nazi to help carry out his plan. The Nazis followed Adolf’s plan to kill Jewish people by creating concentration camps and gas chambers. The Nazis tortured and starved the Jewish people to their deaths. Out of fear and to avoid death themselves, many German civilians accepted Adolf Hitler leadership or they hid from him and his Nazi army.
