Well, it wasn't really the Germans. It was the Nazis themselves who were in charge of killing the Jewish people. It was the German army that was in charge of the fighting in the war (well, primarily. The Nazis did some fighting too, but not as much as the German army). The Jews were killed because Hitler blamed them for EVERYTHING that went wrong with Germany, despite the fact that this wasn't true. Really, all Hitler wanted was a world that was his and free of those he didn't like or agree with. Jews being top on his list.
