This star is a signaficant Judaism symbol Hitler was born in Braunau am Inn, Austria, on April 20, 1889.
He founded the Nazi party around 1928.
By January 1932, the Nazi were officially the largest political party of Germany. They eventually overthrew the German government making Hitler dictator.
Eventually, Hitler began wanting more land for Germany. He invaded surrounding countries starting WWII.
He hated Jewish people and decided he did not want them in Germany. This led him to send 6 million Jews to concentration camps. After many years of this he was on the verge of being killed, so he committed suicide. Many Jews were forced to stand in the blazing sun for hours on end, no sitting, water or rest. Strong men were taken away for work om farms. Pretty girls were forced to become unspeakable things. They also did things like sewing different body parts onto other people, operations without anesthetic, and taking out internal organs such as liver and intestines. Firing squads were used to gun down many people at a time and then dumped the people into piles.
Some were told they were being taken to a shower and it was actually a gas chamber. The soap in these 'showers' were made out of Jewish bodies (their fat).
Many starved to death and some were for medical experimentation, especially twins.
For their meals if they were lucky they would get 1 cup of dirty water a day with a slice of bread. The camp guards became notorious for their cruelty, trying to outdo each other in devising methods of killing their victims.
One man froze to death because he was forced to stay in an ice hole until he died.
Another victim was hung upside down, completely naked, for three hours until he was killed by the camp guards who used sticks to force sand down his throat. Crematoriums were put in the Holocaust to get rid of the hundreds of dead bodies each day. They used the Crematoriums for body disposal. This creation was invented before the Holocaust but brought to a different level. Not just dead bodies were going into this but bodies that were first gassed. People would then die off in the flames. Not only Jewish people were harmed during the Holocaust but other nationalities and religious groups were also. The Holocaust was the effort of Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party in Germany to exterminate the Jews and other people that they considered to be inferior. As a result about 12,000,000 people, about half of them Jews ended up getting murdered. The murders were done by every means imaginable but most of the victims perished as a result of shooting, starvation, disease, and poison gas. Others were tortured to death or died in horrible medical experiments. Germany established about 20,000 camps from 1939 to 1945 to imprison its many millions of victims. These camps were used for a range of purposes including forced labor camps, transit camps which served as temporary way stations, and extermination camps built primarily or exclusively for mass murder.
These facilities were called “concentration camps” because those imprisoned there were physically “concentrated” in one location
