The Holocaust was the mass containment of millions of Jews and many others in concentration camps. After being enslaved while in the concentration camps, 10 - 11 million of them were murdered. The Holocaust wiped out 2/3 of the Jewish population in Europe.

There is some confusion here. There is no war that historians call 'The Holocaust War'. The Holocaust (Nazi genocide of the Jews) took place during World War 2, but World War 2 was not about the Holocaust. The two are distinct, though related. Please see the related questions.

At the appropriate grade level, students who can comprehend World War Two, and all or most of the issues involved in that war, should also be taught about the genocide by the Nazi's of 6 million Jews and other "unworthy" peoples. The WW 2 holocaust was an important part of the history of WW 2 and should be taught.

The two were different but were both appalling. The purpose of the Holocaust was genocide: the aim was to exterminate all Jews in Europe. The purpose of the slave trade was to make money by trafficking and selling human beings: there was no attempt to exterminate them.

It was a enormous genocide throughout Europe around World War Two, where the Nazis killed people who were not respected like Jews, blacks, people with disabilities, and others.

The term the Holocaust (with an upper-case H) was created to refer specifically to the attempt by the Nazis, in 1941-45 to kill all the Jews that they could find. It replaced the Nazis' own term, which was 'the Final Solution of the Jewish Question'. Every event (or series of events) in history is unique.However, if you are asking whether the term also includes other victims of Nazi genocide and other Nazi atrocities there is a problem as there are two definitions in use. Professional historians generally use the term specifically for the Nazi genocide of the Jews, but in popular usage, especially in the US, the term is often used for all victims of Nazi mass murder.If you are asking whether any other people has been subjected to genocide, the answer is yes.For many Jews the Holocaust has become an important 'badge' of Jewish identity: the Jews have become the 'people of the Holocaust'.

differencesSalem witch trials were accused for being witches and the Jews involving the holocaust were accused for their religion. EDIT:In Salem, the trials were caused by pure hysteria and panic and were legal precedings. The Holocaust was genocide and completely illegal everywhere but Nazi Germany.I always have to make this point when comparing the two: During the Holocaust, people were killed for what they were and at Salem, that was in no way the case.

The difference between the Holocaust and the Rwanda genocide is that in the Rwanda genocide lasted less time and less people were killed and in the Holocaust more people were killed and lasted much longer. Another difference between theses two events based on genocide was the religion of people that were killed.____ However, the rate of killing in the Rwandan genocide was staggering - about 800,000 victims killed in 90 days ... As for the question of religion, that really is a red herring. The Nazis killed the Jews because of their ethnicity: Jews who had converted to Christianity were treated in exactly the same way as devoutly practising religious Jews.The Holocaust was Hitler trying to wipe out a "race of people", even though Jewish isn't even a race, its a religion. He discriminated them, and tried to completely rid the world of them. The Rwanda genocide wasn't someone taking control and killing people, it was discrimination between two "tribes" of people, the Hutu and the Tutsi. I can't exactly remember the specifics, but one group dehumanized the other and blamed them for everything/used them as scapegoats (did this in the Holocaust also). I think one group came to where they were, and they favored one group because they thought they were better looking/more graceful than the other group, and the unfavored group got treated badly, so after the people that came from like Europe or something left, there were alot of problems between the two. The group that got treated badly blamed the other one and they just fought and were horrible to eachother. (theres a lot more to it, google both of them.)

Yes he was responsible for genocide, he killed thousands of people. If I could define genocide, i would say two words: Christopher Columbus

there was only one Holocaust, there were two World Wars.

AnswerHe spelled it out in 1925 and 1926 in Mein Kampf, his two volume book meaning "My Struggle."___In fact, the passage generally quoted does not call for genocide and is not a plan or even the start of a plan. Most historians now think the Holocaust was planned in 1941, probably in September-October.Please see the related question below.See also Christopher Browning, The Origins of the Holocaust ...

I'd suggest being very careful with that comparison. Obviously, bullies among the camp guards had a field-day, but there's a vast difference between bullying and genocide. I don't see the two as comparable.

The genocide of Gypsies, Jehovah's Witnesses, homosexuals, and 6 million Jewish people. Jews refer to the Holocaust as "Shoah"._____________There are, however, two competing definitions. When used by professional historians it refers to the Nazi genocide of the Jews."The standard work by the distinguished Canadian historian Michael Marrus, TheHolocaust in History, focused on, to use his own words, 'the Holocaust, the systematic mass murder of European Jewry by the Nazis'. Similarly, Sir Martin Gilbert, in his documentary compilation, The Holocaust: The Jewish Tragedy( London, 1986), concurred in referring to 'the systematic attempt to destroy all European Jewry - an attempt now known as the Holocaust'. Another author, Ronnie S. Landau, put forward a similar definition in his book, The Nazi Holocaust: 'The Holocaust involved the deliberate, systematic murder of approximately 6 million Jews in Nazi-dominated Europe between 1941 and 1945."Richard J. Evans, Telling Lies About Hitler: The Holocaust, History and the David Irving Trial, Verso, London and New York, 2002, pp. 113-4.More popularly, especially in the US, it is extended to all people killed by the Nazis on the basis of their group membership.Yet a third view is gaining ground - namely, the the Germans fought a 'war of annihilation' (mainly on the Eastern Front) and that this attempt to reduce the population of Eastern Europe by about 30 million was the core of the Holocaust, though it included some other groups.

can someone please give me a straight answer of two examples of economic & geographic events in american history

Many groups fought, but if the Holocaust were to be split into two groups, they would be the victims and the perpetrators.
