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.

Schindlerjuden An act of mass destruction, a loss of life; the Holocaust was the mass murder of the Jewish community under the regime of Nazi Germany. The Holocaust first began in 1933 under the power of Adolf Hitler, and eventually ended in 1945 when Nazi Germany was defeated by the allied powers. The term “Holocaust” originates from the Greek term “holokauston”, meaning, “sacrificed by fire”. The Nazis didn’t just focus on the full destruction of Jews, they also narrowed in on the other minorities such as the homosexuals, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Gypsies, and the disabled. An estimated 11 million died under the rule of Hitler, 6 million of those were Jews, and 1.1 million were children.
Jews are the reason that jobs are not available for every German. If it were not for those filthy creatures, Germany and the rest of the world would have a perfect utopia.

Children were killed just for pure research. The main causes of death at Auschwitz were either the gas chambers, a lethal injection of chloroform, or a bullet to the back of the head. The unlucky ones were the ones that were not killed right away because they either died from starvation or fatigue. “Don’t save him, you’ll only be prolonging agony” (108).
