For most people, the Holocaust evokes feelings of empathy for the victims, and anger toward the persecutors. The Holocaust, defined as “the systematic annihilation of six million Jews by the Nazi regime,” began with the rise of Nazi Germany (“A Historical Summary”). When the Germans lost World War One, the Jews received the blame. Anti-Semitism, or the hatred toward Jews, spread like wildfire throughout the nation. Hitler came to power with ideas of a master race, resulting in the persecution of many across Europe in what became known as the Holocaust.
Many Europeans thought Jews were a threat to their land. The Holocaust was a type of Genocide. The Germans were taking Jewish people to Concentration Camps and killing them. (World War II: The Holocaust pg. 1) The Jewish didn’t do anything to deserve this.

Background During World War Two, Hitler and the Nazi party planned out a systematic killing of any person who was different, mostly the whole Jewish race. After World War One, Germany was left weak, paying back the Allies for the war reparation. Hitler got the weak and desperate German people on his side and gained power. He blamed the Jewish people for everything going wrong in Germany. Getting Germany on their side and putting all the blame on the Jews, lead Hitler and the Nazi party to the starting of the Holocaust.
This fascist leader founded his own Nazi party and was determined to establish a nation with pure German or an Aryan race. In order to achieve his goal, Hitler commanded isolation and eventually extermination of the impure groups in Germany. Anyone with impure blood is Germans' enemy. Under Hitler's regime, Germans considered the following groups as their enemies: Jews, Gypsies, homosexuals, and mentally handicapped people (Thirty-six questions). Germans targeted Jews the most among all these groups.
