Transcript of The Holocaust
by Theresa Quilici
The Holocaust began with Hitler's rise to power in January of 1933 and ended on VE Day (May 8, 1945).
Hitler wanted to create a new and better Germany by ridding the country of all the Jewish people who lived there. He felt that they were the cause of Germany’s problems. He hated Jews and other groups of people who were not like him.
In 1945, Germany lost World War II, and the concentration camps were liberated. This is a picture of one of the camps being liberated at the end of the War. Six million Jews died and 1.5 million children were killed, along with many other groups, just for being different.
The word SWASTIKA stems from the Sanskrit, an ancient Indian language: SVASTIKAH, which means 'being happy'. In India the word is related to things of good fortune because it means being happy. The cause of all life and all manifestations of life is movement.

Twenty-four major political and military leaders of Nazi Germany, indicted for aggressive war, war crimes, and crimes against humanity, were brought to trial before the International Military Tribunal. More than 100 additional defendants, representing many sectors of German society, were tried before the United States Nuremberg Military Tribunals in a series of 12 trials known as “Subsequent Nuremberg Proceedings.”
