The holocaust

The Germans and their collaborators killed as many as 1.5 million children.

Concentration camps

Concentration camps are places where they kept the Jews and put them to work. In the concentration camps, you could often find Jewish people wearing blue and white striped uniforms with numbers on them.





How did they kill so many at once?

What is the holocaust?

The Holocaust was the systematic, bureaucratic, state-sponsored persecution and murder of six million Jews by the Nazi regime and its collaborators.

German authorities deported millions of Jews from Germany, from occupied territories, and from the countries of many of its Axis allies to ghettos and to killing centers, often called extermination camps, where they were murdered in specially developed gassing facilities.

After the Holocaust, Israel was created as a safe haven for Jews, which had a big impact on the world even to this day what with the Palestinian and Israeli fighting. The Holocaust also opened people's eyes to genocide and made people realize that evil like this can happen.

The aftermath


It turns out there are several reasons why the German people and their helpers during World War II rose to round up and murder six million of their Jewish neighbors. But in essence, the causes for the Holocaust all revolve around antisemitism, the ancient hatred of Jews and Judaism spread by Christianity during almost two millennia.
