www.schaefshouse.com SOURCES On November 9, 1938, Nazi troops, along with mobs of civilians, attacked Jewish homes, synagogues, and businesses. 100 Jews were killed. The Holocaust was the state-sponsored, systematic persecution and annihilation of European Jews by Nazi Germany and its collaborators between 1933 and 1945. Jews were the primary victims- Gypsies, the handicapped, and Poles were also targeted for destruction or decimation for racial, ethnic, or national reasons.
