between 1933 and 1945. Jews were the primary victims—
6 million were murdered’ Gypsies, the handicapped, and Poles were
also targeted for destruction or decimation for racial, ethnic, or
national reasons. Millions more, including homosexuals, Jehovah’s
Witnesses, Soviet prisoners of war, and political dissidents, also suffered grievous oppression and death under Nazi tyranny.

Adolf Hitler was elected Chancellor of Germany on January 30, 1933 as the leader of the National Socialist German Workers Party. Thousands left the country fearing their lives.
Hitler began issuing laws barring Jews from holding professional positions within the country. Jews were then banned from being civil servants, professors, lawyers and doctors. in 1935, hitler enacted the Nuremberg Laws, which took away the citizenship of German Jews and deprived then of all civil rights.
Belzac- The death camp at Belzec was located in South Eastern Poland, within the Lublin District, near the remote village of Belzec, on the Lublin – Lvov railway line. In early 1940 the Germans set up a number of labour camps in and around Belzec, housing workers building the so-called “Otto Line,” a series of fortifications on the border with the Soviet Union. These Jewish labour camps were disbanded in October 1940
