The Holocaust was carried out by the Nazi regime under Adolf Hitler, and was the mass killings of 6 million Jews.
Hitler blamed Jews for all Germany's problems.
By forcing Jews to wear the Star of David, all Jews in Germany - and eventually all Jews in European countries that fell under Hitler's rule - became indentifiable.
How?
Through transporting millions of Jews to concentration camps across Europe.
To make transportation easier, the Germans created Jewish ghettos: living communities consisting of relocated Jews.
With cramped and poor living conditions, many Jews died in the ghettos. However, with a community mainly full of fellow Jews, morale remained high as they were all together.
From the ghettos, Jews were then taken to concentration camps, where the the young and healthy worked and the weak and elderly were murdered by means of firing squads, gas chambers, starvation, cremation, or camp living conditions.
