Transcript of Holocaust

The holocaust was the systematic killing of over 6 million jews by the Nazi Regime from 1933-1945. The Nazi's were a group of which Adolf Hitler from Germany controlled. Holocaust is a greek word meaning "Sacrifice by fire". The germans thought that they were "racially superior" over the jews and started to mass murder them. They also murdered Homosexuals, communists, and other groups. The Holocaust This is a place where the Nazis put people that they held as prisoner, to make them work. The prisoners worked long hard days of manual labor. When they arrived they were put into groups based on age and male or female. Concentration Camps Most of the death camps were in Poland, because it had the largest population of Jewish people.
These camps were established to mass murder millions of jewish or not perfect people.
