The German dictator Adolf Hitler blamed the Jewish population for the depression Germany was in at the time and he wanted them out of the country. His plan soon after evolved into killing Jews because there were so many. The Jewish population was not the only group targeted. Homosexuals, disabled, gypsies, communists, and many others were also targeted by the Nazis. The targeted groups could try to flee but most of Europe was occupied by the Nazis which made it very difficult for them to get to a neutral or Ally occupied territory.
