Countries Directly Involved in Committing the Holocaust
  • The Holocaust is the modern day name given to Hitler's attempt to exterminate the Jews in what was termed "the Final Solution". Because this 'solution' emanated from Hitler and his closest staff it can only be concluded that Germany was the country that committed the holocaust. Having said that, the holocaust was pursued by the Nazis in a number of European countries.
  • Most of the extermination camps were located by the Nazis in German-occupied Poland.
  • Romania and the puppet state of Croatia carried out their very own, national holocaust. There were collobroations from most Nazi-occupied countries, such as France and Lithuania.
  • In World War 2 (from about 1942 onwards) the Waffen-SS acquired a kind of foreign legion. Ukrainian, Latvian and Lithuanian SS units played a significant role in holocaust, and Ukrainian SS guards figured prominently in the death camps.
