why did the holocaust start?

Jews were the targets of the Holocaust because Hitler hated Jews and blamed them for all of the problems in Germany. He blamed them for Germany's loss of World War1. America and Britain were the winners for world war one and the n they made Germany and Austria signed the treaty so Germany lost a lot of land and the couldn't say any thing because Germany lost the war . Hitler told the German people that they could have won the first war, if Germany had not been "stabbed in the back" by the Jews.

The ghettos

There was about 900 hundred Concentration Camps in Germany.Millions of people were murdered in different ways some of them were gased and some of them were shot and some of them were burnt Nazi camps. Under SS management, the Germans and their collaborators murdered more than three million Jews in the Concentration Camps Only a small fraction of those imprisoned in Nazi camps survived.

What caused the Holocaust

The Holocaust started because of ingrained anti-Semitism both in Germany and the countries it conquered, compounded by propaganda and the resources of a powerful state, and the encouragement and leadership of political leaders. It also started because the passive and active perpetrators held deep feelings of animosity toward Jews—ingrained by almost 2000 years of anti-Semitism in Christian teachings‚
