The Holocaust: The Murder of European Jews

The Holocaust was a massacre of Jews around the time of World War II. The Nazis despised the Jews. They believed that the Jews represented everything opposed to them, so they expressed the need to wipe them out. Approximately 6 million Jews died during the Holocaust. By the time the Jews realized the danger, it was too late. Some attempted to escape by boat, but many did not succeed. Other countries did not accept refugees. Some acquired fake documents to escape persecution. Those who were “righteous among nations” stowed Jews in their homes, factories, etc. Few were daring enough to try and escape the camps. They hid in forests, mountains, or swamps. But only few survived long enough
