Because the Nazi had so much power because of Hiltler and the Germans were scared not to hate the Jews.
Actually ...It wasn't that easy. Most of the German Jews were well integrated into German life till the Nazis came to power. Many Germans had dealings with Jews and found there was a huge g…
Closer to Hell than any Jew, gypsy, Nazi, or different nationality had ever seen. The rations were sparse, if any some days. The warehouses were stuffed with bunks stacked high. Lice crawled through the camp and they worked ridiculous hours.

There is some evidence that relatives of Hitler may have
some kind of connection to a group of people that includes Jews,

There were about 335,000 British troops, and about 50,000 French troops rescued at Dunkirk. Do you want that in alphabetical order, or by rank and unit? Thousands died in the fighting that ended with the withdrawal at Dunkirk.
BackgroundThe Nazis themselves called their attempt to exterminate all the Jews in Europe the Final Solution of the Jewish Question (die Endloesung der Judenfrage). At first, the term Final Solution was widely used, but was felt to be unsatisfactory. In the 1950s the term the Holocaust (as a proper …
Jews, gypsies (Romanies) - these were the only groups
singled out for extermination. Many other groups, however, were
treated very badly, in particular:
Soviet prisoners of war
Other political dissidents
Disabled and incurable people

I hope this helps.
At all times in public by Jews, in Nazi-occupied Europe. The Star
of David was a means of identification, to allow the Nazis,
citizens etc. to know who was Jewish so they could treat them as
called for by Nazi policy.

Considering that it violates the Hebrew faith to have a tattoo, along with the whole idea of reducing a human being to a number, I would say it was a rather traumatic experience! But then that was the intent, to make others see these human beings as not being human. That way …
Vidkun Quisling (1887-1945, shot for treason). He didn't 'give up without a fight'. He was an ardent Nazi.
Maybe you already knew this, but Norway didn't give up without a fight. Because the government of Norway wouldn't let Quisling have the power.
Yes, many people tried to survive the Holocaust.
They weren't treated humanely, or even humanly; that is the whole
point. According to Nazi ideas, Jews, Gypsies and various others
were "untermenschen", that is sub-human. Thus, according to the
Nazis, those people could be eliminated. Simply kill them all so
that Germans can have their land. It was…
To answer your question it is important to understand that there were 'only' six 'death' camps (extermination camps). The rest were concentration camps which had a ifferent function, although a large number of people died in them. The six camps were: most of the Birkenau section of Auschwitz, Belze…
The Holocaust The Holocaust (with a capital H) refers to the
genocide (mass murder) of about six million Jews by the Nazis in
1941-1945 (during World War 2). It was the so-called Final Solution
[of the Jewish Question].
The term is often used in a broader sense to include millions of
others also k…
During WWII a small number of US servicemen had "Dog Tags" marked with "H" for Hebrew were and some of these were executed on the spot. There were also a few (about 300 to 500) that were removed from POW camps, placed into labor camps, maltreated and some were placed into the exterminaction camps. …
Nothing. ___ It has alot to do with the turnout of WWI. After the war, Germany fell into a severe economic depression. Hitler capitalized on this and directed peoples frustration about the turnout of the war towards the Jewish people, many of whom where well off compared to Germany as a whole.

Richard V. Horrell WW 2 Connections.com makes no sense jack ass !!!
Hitler got followers through lies. Germany was also deeply affected by the Depression and Treaty of Versailles.
The Holocaust refers specifically to the Nazi genocide of the Jews. This is generally dated as 1941 to 1945 and took place in World War 2. Of course, before the start of the Holocaust, the Jews in Nazi Germany and later also in other areas under German control were persecuted and killed, but is not …
That is a question people have been asking ever since the war and there is no good answer. The only thing that can be said is that, sadly, what they did is not unique. History is filled with similar acts of savage barbarism committed by all cultures. From the 1930s to the 1950s Stalin killed over 20…

Opinion Obviously, it would have helped if the U.S., Britain, Australia and Canada had taken in more refugees from Germany in the 1930s, before the Holocaust began. For an example of this aspect of Holocaust history you can read about the tragedy of the S.S. St. Louis at the related link. However, …

The book is very short, but incredibly informative and gives the reader a first hand glimpse into the psychology of survival as well as the…
Hitler hated the Jews for a lot of reasons. One was because he thought they had "back-stabbed" Germany during WW1. Most unlikely. His mother died in 1907 and, according to Ian Kershaw's highly acclaimed biography, the first evidence of real antisemitism on Hitler's part dates from 1916. I've read …

The Treaty of Versailles did NOT contribute or lead to the Holocaust. The Versailles Treaty did, however, encourage German nationalism.Even in the early years of Nazi rule in Germany it was not obvious that the persecution of the Jews would culminate in mass murder.

Since 1945-46, the most commonly quoted figure for the total
number of Jews killed has been an estimate of approximately six
million. This figure, first given at the Nuremberg Tribunal,
has been broadly confirmed by later research.
The Holocaust commemoration center, the Yad Vashem Holocaust
Most German Jews were patriotic Germans, especially the families of those who fought in World War I. Berlin had tens of thousands of Jews living there in the 1930s, and some Jews undoubtedly supported NSDAP candidates. However, by 1933, Jewish professionals were boycotted, and the Nuremberg laws of…
Frankly and in all seriousness I believe that myth is supported by people who have deviated sharply off the path of sanity and/or have a political/ideological agenda to push that requires the Holocaust to have been some sort of scam propogated by Jews and Allied governments which are purportedly con…
As far as can be established, the word 'Holocaust' (actually 'a holocaust', not 'the Holocaust') was first used in the (London) News Chronicle in November 1942 to describe the extermination of the Jews.The word 'genocide' was first used in print in 1944. However, the term Holocaust was not widely us…

There was no point, not one that can be understood rationally. Hitler believed that non-Germans, Jew in particular, were sub-human trash who had no right to exist and whose very existence threatened the mighty and superior German race. (See, it makes no sense) Therefor, in order to eliminate this th…
The term is short for Final Solution of the Jewish Question [German Endloesung der Judenfrage] and was the Nazis' own term for their attempt (starting in 1941) to kill all the Jews in Europe. Since about 1980 it has usually been referred to by most historians as the Holocaust. The Final Solution was…
The earliest firm evidence of Hitler's antisemitism dates from 1916, when Hitler was aged 27, so stories about early experiences in his life should be treated with caution. Hitler believed that the Jews were involved in a great conspiracy to control the wealth of Europe and to dominate and destroy …

To elaborate a little, most Germans liked the idea because they were drowning in poverty after the first World War. Quite a few wanted revenge after being defeated. There were also quite a few rumors abound that Jews had been the ones who had betrayed them and caused them to…
The figure of about 11 million people is sometimes mentioned but it is not all clear what or who this includes and how the figure is arrived at. Sometimes one finds the range 11 to17 million.
