During this tragic event, it was the nightmare for all the Jews who suffered from fear, lost loved ones’ and death. The Holocaust was a bureaucratic persecution and murder of six million Jews by the Nazi Regime and its collaborators. The Nazis came into power in Germany during January 1933. These individuals claimed that Jews were “inferior” and a threat to the Germany racial community. Nazis considered Jews to be the main danger to Germany. Jews were the primary victims of Nazi racism, but other victims included Roma (Gypsies) and people with mental or physical disabilities.
The Nazis murdered some 200,000 Roma. And they murdered at least 250,000 mentally or physically disabled patients, mainly in German. From the earliest years of the Nazi Regime, German authorities persecuted homosexuals and others whose behavior did not counterpart the prescribed social norms. Also they targeted thousands of political opponents including Communists, Socialists and religious activists (Jehovah’s Witnesses). The aftermath of the holocaust, many of the survivors found shelter in displace individuals’ camps administered by the Allied Powers. Between 1948 and 1951, almost 700,000 Jews immigrated to Israel, including 136,000 Jewish displaced people from Europe. The last camp for Jewish displaced closed in 1957, crime committed during the holocaust devastated most European Jewish communities and eliminated hundreds of Jewish populations in occupied Eastern Europe entirely
