What was the Holocaust?
The Holocaust was the systemic, bureaucratic, state-sponsored persecution and murder of six million Jews and others by the Nazi regime during World War II. The Nazis, who came to power in Germany in 1933, believed that Germans were “racially superior” and that the Jews, deemed “inferior”, were a threat. The Nazis also targeted and murdered other groups of people based on their perceived racial and biological inferiority.
