The Holocaust began when the head of Germany, who was Adolf Hitler wanted to get rid of all the people he did not like. In his werds he put it that the Jews were the reason why the Germans lost WWI. So they went to the colonies that they controlled and they first put them in isolated subdivisions called ghettos in which they were given limitations. As soon as WWII got in motion, the Germans under Hitlers power(The Nazis) gathered the Jews up by ghettos and sent them off to Concentration camps where they burned the old, weak, and babies. If the Jews were healthy, they would put them to work until they died of starvation, disease, cold, or by gas chambers. A total of 6 million Jews died during the holocaust.Oskar Schindler saved 11 thousand Jews by sending them to Czechoslovakia but the train that the women were on went to Auschwitz (The largest concentration camp.

In the end the Jews that Oskar had saved were called The Schindler Jews.There has been movies and books on the Holocaust.Schindlers List has been a book and a movie (The movie has won over 3 awards)
