1933 and 1945

The first and last years of the Holocaust

This year was the first year of the Holocaust and marked Hitlers rise to power. He became the leader of Nazi Germany and began his reign. After his terrible rule, it came to an end in 1945, when he was defeated by the allied powers. They were retreating for a while, and finally Hitler admitted defeat. He retreated to a military bunker where he committed suicide with his wife, Eva Braun. The allied powers were apparently 800 meters away from apprehending him.With no one to rule, the Nazi defeat was imminent and came to be a few months later.
