What was the Holocaust?
The Holocaust is the slaughter on a mass scale. The Holocaust was an event evolving between 1933 and 1945. It began with discrimination. Jews were separated from their communities and persecuted; and finally they were treated as less than human beings and murdered. It took place in the Nazi-controlled Germany and other Nazi-controlled territories lead by Hitler (refer to source 1).
