The Holocaust

Adolf Hitler and the killing of the Jews.

What is the Holocaust?

The Holocaust was a unique event in 20th century history. It evolved slowly between 1933 and 1945. It began with discrimination; then the Jews were separated from their communities and persecuted and finally they were treated as less than human beings and murdered.

What were the camps like and how they were run?

An SS Death’s Head Unit, using the model established in Dachau, administered each camp. The SS unit was split into two groups. The first of these was responsible for life, security and conditions inside the camp, whilst the second group was responsible for guarding the perimeter of the camp, in addition to an exclusion zone around it
