There are various definitions of Holocaust survivor. On the most stringent definition, about 150,000 survived. This means Jews who were in real danger and/or in camps and/or in hiding and still alive on 8 May 1945.
The Jews still alive at the end of the Holocaust were freed by the Allies, but there were not many of them still alive in the areas that had been under Nazi control.
yes if you take today's date 2010 and subtract the date of the end of the Holocaust 1945 you get: 2010 - 1945 = 65 so the youngest survivor of the Holocaust will be 65 years old
It took only days for soldiers to end HOLOCAUST!
The holocaust originated in Germany where the deportation of the Jewish people were forced to leave in the heart of the holocaust. though there are many start and end variating dates, 1938 - 1945.
By the end of the Holocaust after some investigations by various allied countries, it did came to a conclusion that between 11.5 Million of 13.5 Million People were killed during the Holocaust. 55% being Jews and about 20% were Soviet POW.
They were alive like aprox like 100 because many people died alot. If you think there were more people alive that means you are wrong okkk
About 20,000 out of 500,000 +++ or about 4%.
Everyone still left alive at the end of WWII. ____ But the Holocaust and World War 2 are not the same thing! ____ It's too vague a question to be more specific than that. Are they asking how many Jews were left alive after the Germans were defeated? In the entire world? Because if we hadn't won WWII, they might have ruled everywhere. Also, they didn't just kill Jews. They killed all kinds of people, so you'd have to know how many of each of those groups were still alive in the world when the Germans were defeated. But maybe that's not what's being asked at all. It could be how many people from these groups were left alive in the countries that Germany had conquered before they were defeated. And if German rule continued for several generations, you'd have to count all the people who would have been born during that time and therefore also subject to dying in the holocaust. You can come up with a rough number of the people who did NOT survive the holocaust, but it's impossible to say who else would have died if the holocaust hadn't ended when it did- and therefore impossible to say how many people survived.
It started because there were too many people in a small space, with not enough fod to feed them. It ended because the powers that perpetrated the Holocaust were no longer in a position to continue.
The Allies made no specific attempt to end the Holocaust.
During this time of the twentieth century, about nine-million Jews were living Europe. When the Holocaust began, deportations of Jews began. In the end, approximately six-million of the nine-million Jews died at the hands of Nazis. In other words, two out of every three Jews were killed by the Nazis by the end of the Holocaust.
Just prior to the end of the war, many officers in work/death camps abandoned the populations, and locked them in. Many of the people inside were suffering from exposure, naked, starved, and unable to even process food. Their bodies were literally reduced to skeletons, many unable to walk. The look in their eyes can be described as beyond suffering. Many survivors still have the numbers on their arms, tattooed. For them, the holocaust, or Shoach, never ended, because the people who died still aren't alive, and many people of the world still want to see Jews exterminated.
That would depend upon which week. At the begining of 1942; 75% of those who would die in the Holocaust were still alive, by the end of 1942; 75% of those who would die in the Holocaust were dead. Yet the most murders in a month was in June 1944.
Anne Frank did not make it through the Holocaust. She died in Bergen-Belsen before the end of the war (end of the Holocaust).
There was no 'war against the Holocaust'. The Allies fought Nazi Germany and won, but the end of the Holocaust was a by-product of the Allied victory.
America fought Germany for the end of the Holocaust, you can learn more if you research more about the Holocaust end and WW2.
You could argue that the Holocaust was the start of the modernity.
Most people had no idea what was going on until after the war or towards the end.

The Holocaust began in 1933 and ended in 1945. The Holocaust was carried out by Nazi Germany, and the death toll was right around 11 million people.
The UN did not exist at the time. For the rest of the answer see the related question: How did the Holocaust end?
no doubt, the end of the Holocaust.
No one person helped the Holocaust end. The fall of Hitler helped a lot and when Germany surrendered to the Allies in the end, all Jews, homosexuals, and other people Hitler hated were free from harm. Just message me if you need more info about this!
well during the holocaust, we basicly fought in wwii. because we didnt know about the holocaust until the end of the war when we found the camps. so we ccouldnt really help all the people that were hurt in the holocaust. but we did help as much as we could after we found the camps.
