Salem witch trials were accused for being witches and the Jews involving the holocaust were accused for their religion.


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.
