== == Russia, or more properly at that time The Soviet Union was one of the main belligerents in World War II. They were one of the so called "Big Three" allies against Germany. Russians are a Slavic people. Russia had a substantial Jewish population. Slavs and Jews were the two ethnic groups whom Hitler considered to be the chief racial enemies of the German people and wanted to exterminate from the Earth. It is this program of extermination, in which some ten to twelve million people, including around six million Jews, were murdered, that we call the Holocaust. When the Germans attacked Russia in 1941 they quickly overran vast amounts of territory. They would go into villages and massacre the entire population. Millions were killed that way. Still more millions were starved to death, worked to death in slave labor battalions and other millions were shipped by rail to extermination camps where they were gassed or shot or otherwise murdered. The largest number of people killed in the Holocaust came from the Soviet Union.
