it began in German because Hitler needed a scape goat so he decided to pick on minorities and other often defensless groups of people to motivate Germany to be become a wartime nation. He killed gypsies, gays, blacks, mentally handicapped people, and about a whole bunch of slavic people. the Jews seemed to be the main target so they got all the reperations and pity even though millions more casualties came from people of other backgrounds (especially from the former ussr)
