It was an incredibly disturbing act of racism that should never happen again. It already has but no one should have such strong feelings of hatred for a WHOLE race or religion. In my opinion, racism is pathetic and I honestly don't understand how people can have such feelings. So, yes, the Holocaust is important and it affected more than just Jews. Hitler was a cruel dictator who should have been killed before he could have ruthlessly killed millions of people

Because approximately 6,000,000 Jewish men, women, and children were killed during the Holocaust-- about 2/3 of the Jews living in Europe at the start of World War II.

How is it not important. Millions of people died by the hands of the Nazis, so many people died that some weren't even counted. Gypsies, Jewish and Polish people`,also homosexuals died. This event is important because it shows us what humanity is capable of. Also, it tells us not just to stand around, but to take action when something bad is happening. Another reason it is important because it teaches us not to repeat the bad parts of history. That is why the Holocaust is important.

Actually, around about 6,000,000 Jews died during the Holocaust, so yes much more than 6,000,000 people died but originally it was said that 6,000,000 JEWS died... not everybody in total (eg. disabled, mentally ill, gypsies, etc.) More Russians died than Jews.
