From the year 1933, when Adolf Hitler came into power as a militaristic dictator, to 1945, the year he ended his reign of terror by committing suicide, Germany has never been the same since. One of the largest and most callous genocide took place between the elapsed time; and about eleven million people were murdered just within that time frame. Pagans and those who were not of Aryan descent were segregated and eliminated in Hitler's plan known as the final solution. The holocaust occurred due to the denial of Germans to accept the main reason to their failed economy. Therefore, they needed someone to blame for their troubled economy.

Some of the propaganda the Nazi party made were pictures of Jews pointing out what makes them Jewish and their distinctive traits, so you can spot them. These were on the front of newspapers printed everywhere in Germany. (An Introductory History of the Holocaust) They began to take away individual rights, and picked the Jews apart.
During the Holocaust millions of innocent people died in a massive war. The people, who died, were known as slaves. Slavery is the state of a person who is a chattel of another human.

Jews relocated themselves to places outside of Europe and migrated to foreign countries because of fear. Furthermore, the Holocaust left behind an everlasting scar on the Jewish race.
