Holocaust

The Holocaust was a deliberate and systematic extermination of European Jews during World War II. As the Allied Powers fought Nazi Germany's domination of Europe, Adolf Hitler's henchmen were carrying out a mass annihilation of the Jews in Europe at their numerous concentration camps. The total number of Jews murdered during this genocide has been estimated to be nearly 6 million. Besides European Jews, there were many other groups targeted for destruction. They included the handicapped, mentally ill, Gypsies, Jehovah's Witnesses, homosexuals and political dissidents. When Allied forces made their way far enough into Nazi-held territories to find the concentration camps, it was General Eisenhower who insisted that the atrocities be documented so that no one could claim this never happened, and so those responsible could be held accountable.
