              A BRIEF LOOK INSIDE THE HOLOCAUST

The Holocaust was the systematic, bureaucratic, state-sponsored
persecution and murder of approximately six million Jews by the Nazi
regime and its collaborators. The Nazis, who came to power in
Germany in January 1933, believed that Germans were racially
superior and that the Jews, deemed inferior, were life unworthy of life.
During the era of the Holocaust, the Nazis also targeted other groups
because of their perceived racial inferiority: Roma the handicapped,
and some of the Slavic peoples. Other groups were persecuted on
political and behavioral grounds, among them Communists,
Socialists, Jehovah's Witnesses, and homosexuals.

During the Holocaust, the Germans established a series of detention
centers called Concentration Camps, a camp in which people are
detained or confined, usually under harsh conditions and without
regard to legal norms of arrest and imprisonment. These horrible
conditions led to the agonizing death to millions of people, particularly
Jews. The Concentration camps were created in different places
throughout Europe.
