Holocaust/ Holodomor

Holocaust: The genocide of European Jews and others by the Nazis during World War 2. Approximately 6 million deaths in the Nazi death camps.

Genocide: The systematic and planned extermination/execution of an entire national, racial, political, or ethnic group.

The Soviet Union/Ukraine, experienced genocide before the war in the Holodomor, in which 7.5 million innocent people, especially Ukrainian Jews were killed. 8 years later, once WWII started, the Soviet Union starts saving Jews, by unintentionally sending them to labor camps. While on the front, partisans saved Jews and protected them from the incoming Germans and the S.S. (An elite quasi-military unit of the Nazi party that served as Hitler's personal guard and as a special security. “Schutz-Staffel”) units.

There were other ways the Sobiet Union helped. In Lithuania, as the Nazis (A member of the National Socialist German Workers' Party, founded in Germany in 1919 and brought to power in 1933 under Adolph Hitler) advanced into the Soviet Union, the Lithuanian ambassador to Japan helped Jews open visas so that they could go to Japan, and from there, to Canada.

In the section Soviet Union by Cynthia Ozick, tells us about how Soviet Union soldiers helped Jews by sending them to labor camps, aquiring visas and saved them because of respect they have made. This section intersected us because Soviet Union/Ukraine experienced genocide before the war and during the war. They unintentionally saved Polish Jews and sent them to Japan because they respected them, when 8 years ago they were killing Jews.
