The Holocaust

The Holocaust was a genocide in which approximately six million Jews were were killed by the Nazi regime, led by Adolf Hitler

The Nuremberg Laws of 1935 were anti-Semitic laws in Nazi Germany introduced at the annual Nuremberg Rally of the Nazi Party. After the takeover of power in 1933 by Hitler, Nazism became an official ideology incorporating anti-Semitism as a form of scientific racism.

In January 1933, around nine million Jews lived in the 21 countries of Europe that was occupied by the Nazi during the Second World War. Also this was the start of when Hitler became chancellor of Germany which began his power. World Wars also had an effect on this event leading it into the gruesome devastation we learn today.


They used the term “Final Solution” to refer to their plan to annihilate the Jewish people. It is not known when the leaders of Nazi Germany definitively decided to implement the "Final Solution", but they were still thinking of the idea. The genocide, or mass destruction, of the Jews was the culmination of a decade of increasingly severe discriminatory measures.Under the rule of Adolf Hitler, the persecution and segregation of Jews was implemented in stages. After the Nazi party achieved power in Germany in 1933, its state-sponsored racism led to anti-Jewish legislation, economic boycotts, and the violence of the "Kristallnacht" .

Germans started to round up all the Jews and put them in concetration camps if they were not dead when spotted. Many were found hiding and were punished poorly in return. Some were starved, burned, and were put in piles of dead bodies. Even the women were treated unfairly and some were experimented.

When Allied forces finally invaded Germany in 1945, Hitler knew he would lose this time. Whether out of cowardice or fear of punishment, Adolf Hitler committed suicide in April of 1945 before the Allies had a chance to capture him. Thousands of Nazis committed suicide during this year, as they were taught that it was a more favorable option to die and face their punishments in death instead of being paid for their wrongs in life. However, hundreds more were caught and punished for their involvement in the Holocaust ending the event.




Later in 1942
