Best Answer

Television existed - mostly as a laboratory curiosity - at the time of the Holocaust. But it did not become commercially viable (in most people's homes) until after World War II.


The only countries that had regular television broadcasting during World War 2 were Germany and the US. However, TV sets were very expensive and not many household had one. TV broadcasting was only for a few hours a day (about 5pm-11pm).

Obviousy, if you are asking whether the Holocaust itself was televised, the answer is no. The Holocaust was top secret.
