For exterminating the Jewish people. It was the largest of all ofthe death camps that were set up before and during World War 2.Millions of innocent men, women and children were murdered in thishorrible place.
There were many causes of death in concentration camps. When they first entered a camp some were shot automatically. Of course there were the terrible torture devices ( gas chambers etc.) There were also many many diseases that spread around. ( Example: typhus, which Anne Frank died from) due to the...

Genocides are oneof the most difficult things to prevent. By the time the outsideworld knows about one, it has gone for weeks, months or years. Morethan six decades after the Holocaust, the horrors of Bosnia,Rwanda, and Darfur are sobering reminders that preventing futuregenocides and mass...
Most of the Jews in the ghettos were sent to the concentrationcamps by the Nazis, but if they were fortunate and the war endedbefore the Nazis could take them, they would go back to theirhomes.
Celebrating it would open a whole can of worms. Would anyone really think it in good taste to celebrate the systematic wiping out of over 6 million people? Well yes, they would, but those people are, thankfully, in a hateful minority. Commemorating, however, is completely different, though it can...
This sort of question is hard to generalise because much depended on the fascist zeal of the commander involved in making that decision. In one solitary documented case, an SS guard couldn't handle the moral aspects of his work at a death camp and was transferred elsewhere quietly.

They were Jews in the Nazi-occupied Netherlands (Holland). When Margot Frank received a demand to report for 'resettlement in eastern Europe' (that is deportation to a concentration camp in Poland) the family went into hiding.
just how terrifying the hiding she was forced to undergo was.
Well the Germans who ran them just plain hated the Jews. They thought all their troubles were originated from the Jewish people. So then they made them work, put them in gas chambers, and tortured them.
because they were funded by the bakers from the wall street and allied with the vatican, third Reich is nothing but a vaticans war against the Jews and orthodox christians which was fought for hundreds of years and they have also succeeded in 1.giving us the UN 2.driving the Jews out of...
it is possible because Hitler tried to send the disabled people to concentration camps and everyone protested so if the Germans who were not the subjects of prejudice had complained about the Jews and roma/sinti and poles etc. being sent off to concentration camps it is likely. also if during WWI a...

About 90% were never tried and lived happily ever after (sometimes with new names) - in Germany and Austria. A few went to various South American countries.
The Nazi ghettos were never intended to be permanent; they were in many ways like vast transit camps, where the Jews were held till they were transported to extermination camps or killing fields.
Hitler himself didn't really personally do much of anything in theway of "torture". He was much more interested in eliminating them(and confiscating their property, or in using them for slave labor)than torturing them. . Of course, that also meant he didn't object too strenuously ifsomeone else...
The only weapon really used in the Holocaust were Gas chambersusing Zyklon-B rodenticide gas, (killing so many theextermination-camp crematoria had to run continually). Before this,many victims were simply shot, but the Nazis realised this was tooinefficient for their mass-murder policy, and had bad...
Jews, Disabled, Christians, Jehovah's Witnesses and other religiouspeople, anyone that tried to stop Hitler.
He was voted in by the public as Germany was in a terrible place atthe time and Hitler seemed like the spark of hope that they neededas he said that he would change everything.
Some people were put in extremely cold waters to see if they could live for a long time. That experiment found hypothermia. This is only one of very many cruel and unusual tests.

The German towns people said they did not know about the killings. The Nazis leaders said the Jews had to be eradicated. The grunts of the Wehrmacht and SS said we were "just following orders".

Adolf Hitler had a great impact on Germany. It might not havebeen the best, but he left a huge mark. First, he convinved many tofollow him and he killed 17 million people in total. Then, he was apart of what began WWII (World War Two). Lastly, he committed suicide and left Germany in times of...
Anne Franks birth place was in the city of Frankfurt am Main in Weimar Germany
Obviously, he wanted them to learn useful skills at school and to acquire Nazi ideology. Beyond that, he wanted the boys to become 'soldierly' from an early age, and the girls to prepare themselves for motherhood.
Hitler himself did not actually say that he wanted 'a race of all blonde haired and blue-eyed people' ... According to Hitler's Table Talk he found Himmler's preoccupation with blond hair and blue eyes faintly ridiculous and cranky. In other words, there were people around him who took this...

Right now, it is a estimate of five-million non-Jewish civilians that were killed in the Holocaust. People are searching for further evidence to determine a better estimate of how many was really killed, but the real number will never be known.
