The Holocaust
1 Dates
1.1 It began in 1933, when Adolf Hitler came to power in Germany
1.2 It finally ended ended on May 8, 1945 (VE Day).
2 The Victims
2.1 Between 1933 and 1945, more than 11 million men, women, and children were murdered in the Holocaust. Approximately six million of these were Jews
2.2 Over 1.1 million children died during the Holocaust
2.3 Young children were particularly targeted by the Nazis to be murdered during the Holocaust. This was because if they lived, they would grow up to parent a new generation of Jews. Many children suffocated in the crowded cattle cars on the way to the camps, and those who survived were then taken to the gas chambers
3 What was it like?
3.1 The victims of the Holocaust were taken to concentration camps in 'cattle wagons'. These were dirty, unhygienic carriages with no water, food, toilets or ventilation.
3.2 The longest transport of the war took 18 days. When the transport doors were open, everyone was already dead
4 The 'Final Solution'
4.1 The “Final Solution” was constructed during the Wannsee Conference in January 1942. Fourteen high-ranking Nazis met in Wannsee, a suburb of Berlin, and presented a program to deport all Jews to Poland where the SS would kill them
4.2 It consisted of locking a large number of innocent men, women and children into a confined room and filliong the room with toxic gas. Firstly, carbon monoxide was used but afterwards an insecticide, Zyklon B, was used to kill inmates
