This is the definition of holocaust in the dictionary:

A great or complete devastation or destruction, especially by fire

This is the definition of (the) Holocaust via the dictionary:

The systematic mass slaughter of European Jews in Nazi concentration camps during World War II.

In other words, Holocaust could refer to any massacre or mass destruction, while Holocaust refers to the specific time period during World War II.

What is the difference between shoah and Holocaust?

I'm also wondering difference of those two cuz I met one holocaust survivor today and she said holocaust and the shoah is kinda different-------------------------------------Shoah is the word that the Jews use for the attempted extermination of the Jews by the Nazis. This word is used in preference to the word Holocaust for three main reasons:The Holocaust is used by many to describe all of the victims of Nazi extermination policies.The definition of Holocaust implies sacrifice and many Jews consider this inappropriate as there was no sacrifice involved.The word (or term) Holocaust is currently being hijacked by many other people resulting in it's meaning being eliminated, for example 'Animal Holocaust or African Holocaust or 'Today's Holocaust'. Or 'motorway Holocaust' just to describe a car crash, which obviously is almost the same as the Holocaust.


What is the difference between the Holocaust and slavery?

The difference between the holocaust and American slavery is that the holocaust was an attempt to exterminate an entire race of people. Slaves were brought to America to make a profit or to work for an owner. Because of this difference it is widely mistaken that the amount of people killed in the holocaust was greater than that of slavery. Most people would agree that the number of Jewish people killed during the holocaust comes to a total of 6 million with another 5 million killed for the aid or harboring of a Jew. There were roughly 30 to 40 million slaves killed before ever reaching America. That's not including the number of slaves that were killed after reaching America. Only 10 to 15 million slaves made the journey.
