The holocaust...


To the anti-Semitic Nazi leader Adolf Hitler, Jews were an inferior race, an alien threat to German racial purity. After years of Nazi rule in Germany, during which Jews were consistently persecuted, Hitler’s “final solution”–now known as the Holocaust–came to fruition under the cover of world war, with mass killing centers constructed in the concentration camps of occupied Poland.

Did you know that…Around 6 million Jews were murdered during World War II?

The Nazis started with Propaganda against the Jews they were forced to wear a Jewish badge

Hitler wrote in his book Mein Kampf that when he became ruler he would rid Germany of all the Jews.

During the era of the Holocaust, German authorities also targeted other groups because of their perceived "racial inferiority": disabled people, Communists, Socialists, Jehovah's Witnesses, and homosexuals.

In the final months of the war, allied forces began to liberate concentration camps prisoners by forced marches.
