Causes

The start to he entire problem of the Holocaust really boils down to the rise of anti-Semitism, which criticized Jews and blamed them for the end of the first World War. Hitler was an Austrian who joined the German army after being twice rejected from art school and being homeless for a while. He started to hang out at pubs and bars which is where his first introductions to anti-Semitism was born.

He took the idea to a new level trying to eradicate the Jewish culture all together.
