The Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler wanted to eliminate all Jews as part of his plan for world power. Jews were not the only victims of the Nazis during W.W.II. The Nazis also killed millions of other people whom Hitler regarded as racially lower or politically dangerous. After World War II began in 1939, Germany's powerful war machine conquered country after country in Europe. Millions more Jews came under German control.

The Ally forces pressured Germany to create a homeland for those who suffered through the Holocaust. Over the decades that followed, ordinary Germans struggled with the Holocaust’s bitter legacy, as survivors and the families of victims tried to regain their property and wealth that was taking away during the Holocaust. In 1953, the German government made payments to individual Jews and to the Jewish people as a way of apologizing for the crimes which were committed by the German people.
In late 1939 Hitler invaded Poland, beginning World War II. In mid-1941 Hitler invaded the Soviet Union and at about the same time (historians don’t agree on exactly when) Hitler decided there should be a “Final Solution” to “the Jewish Question”. The “Final Solution” was the murder of the Jews and was mainly carried out by a military group known as the SS and a security service known as the SD. They arrested Jews and other victims ran the concentration camps and organised the murder squads. During the first part of the extermination one and a half million Jews and other civilians were murdered by military groups which rounded them up and shot them.
Its meaning, since 1945 has become: The mass murder of six million jews in Europe by German Nazi’s during the Second World War. Adolf Hitler, the Nazi Leader, hated Jews and found them a lower-in-status race, and a threat to the German faction. After years of Nazi rule in Germany, Jews were violently persecuted and tortured to death. Hitler’s ‘Holocaust’ was his solution that brought a world of war, with mass killing and centers of concentration camps. Hitler took power in Germany in 1933 and immediately began committing things that lead up to the holocaust.
The Holocaust The Holocaust was the Nazi persecution and murder of Jews in the time of World War II. In 1939, Germany's powerful war machine conquered country after country in Europe and thus bringing millions more Jews under their control. They established concentration camps to imprison Jews, Gypsies and other victims of ethnic and racial hatred, and political opponents of Nazism. They killed many of them and sent others to concentration camps. They also moved many Jews from towns and villages into city ghettos and later sent these people to concentration camps as well.

Globocnik assistant, SS Major Hermann Hoeffel, was in charge of organising the deportation to the Aktion Reinhard camps. The Nazis also gassed Jews in other extermination camps in Poland: Auschwitz Berkenau (the largest of all camps), Majdanek and Chelmno. At Majdanek, groups of Jews who were considered incapable of doing the work required were gassed. In Chelmno all of the Jews were gassed in mobile gas vans. The Nazis systematically murdered over three million
Before the Jews were taken from their home and placed in to the ghettos, they were brutally targeted by the Germans. They were forced to wear the yellow armbands with the Star of David in order for the Nazis to label them as Jewish. Ghettos were closed city districts where the Germans forced Jews to live under miserable conditions. Ghettos isolated Jews by separating them from non-Jewish communities. After the Ghettos, the Jews were sent to concentration camps, Auschwitz being the largest of its kind; The Jews were driven into small box cars and deported to the death camps for extermination.
During the end of the 1930’s, Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party rose into action. Hitler is commonly referenced and linked with World War II, and has become famous for his brutal dictatorship in Germany. Adolf Hitler began the persecution of Jews with the belief that they were insignificant to the human race. Along with Jews, he believed that handicapped, mentally ill, and elderly people did not deserve the right to live. This horrifying genocide killed over 2/3 of the Jewish population in Europe.
Adolf Hitler came to power over Germany in January of 1933. He hated Jews and blamed them for everything bad that had ever happened to Germany. Hitler’s goal in life was to eliminate the Jewish population. With his rise to power in Germany, he would put into action his plan of elimination. This is not only why German Jews were the main target of the Holocaust, but why they were a large part of the years before, during, and after the Holocaust.
