This geonocide, led by Adolf Hitler, who was the chancellor and future dictator of Germany, resulted in the death of six million Jews and thousands of other innocents. The Holocaust is arguably the worst thing that has happened in our history.

There was approximately six million Jews were sent to death camps and killed during World War II (1939-1945). So what do you think that led up to this? Why Adolf Hitler hatred towards Jews is so strong that made him did the inhuman cruel murder? Well the resolution lies in the ethnic undercurrents that ran beneath the peripheral of Germany and the world. The Holocaust was the execution of the Jews and other people whom Hitler considered mediocre.
Hitler hated the Jews for all the reasons in the world. Some of them are for no reason at all. But it was mostly because the Germans lost World War 1 to the Jews. Hitler’s hatred on the Jews was called “anti-Semitism”. Hitler’s Jewish hatred led to reasons why the holocaust was started and how the holocaust claimed 6 million lives.
