1933: Hitler became chancellor of Germany. NSDAP becomes the only authorized party
in Germany. The Nazi ideology was started immediately after the takeover of power on
January 30, 1933. The Germans begin the persecution of undesirable people.
Jews noticing the consequences of the Nazi anti-Jewish policy immediately. Jewish shops, lawyers and doctors boycotted. Since the Jews were barred to work in the state. They were forbidden to participate in all cultural contexts.
The Nazis gathered and burned books by Jewish authors and writers
which was against Nazism. New laws approved the forced sterilization of Gypsies, handicapped and colored tyskar.Förintelsen was not just a physical extermination.
It was history's largest and most elaborate looting of Jewish private assets.

During the 1930s, the Nazis enacted over 400 new laws was that the Jews were taken away almost all of their rights as human beings.
Persecution process took 5 years in Germany. As the Nazis managed to get the German people to support or stay silent to the government's attempt to make Germany "Jew-free".

The first gave the hands (cordoned Jewish neighborhood) was formed in 1940-42.
Hundreds of large and small ghettos established throughout Poland and Eastern Europe.
They were the beginning of a concentration and collection process that would later facilitate the Nazis as the next step in the Holocaust began.

In Germany in 1941 became the Star of David the ultimate symbol that all German Jews
Six years would be forced to wear on their coats. Then it continued in other countries such as Germany conquered.

In Eastern Europe and Germany, the Germans built concentration camps to eradicate unwanted people, especially those who were not considered to belong to the Aryan race.

1942 endorsed the Nazi leaders a plan called the "final solution of the Jewish question." With it meant that all Jews would be taken to concentration camps.
Jews, Gypsies, Slavs, political opponents, homosexuals and others were gathered.
They were crowded together in inhumane conditions in crowded barracks.
They were forced into hard labor, largely without food.

Hundreds of thousands of people died of starvation, disease and exhaustion.
Even more were shot or gassed. Every day gassed 10 thousands of people to death just in the gas chambers. Some prisoners used in gruesome medical experiments.
Dom worst and most talked camps during the Holocaust was Auschwitz, Birkenau
and Treblinka.

More than 11 million people died in the Holocaust in concentration camps or executions. Approximately 6 million of them were Jews and 90% of Poland over 3
million Jews.

Despite very inhumane living conditions formed resistance movements who resisted and rebelled in many different places.
Tex. uprising in the Warsaw ghetto in 1943. Even in the concentration and extermination camps are organized resistance movements of both Jewish and non-Jewish prisoners.

1942 autumn began to come more and more data on massmördandet was going on.
The pressure on the allies to react increased it happened the next nothing.
It took until 1945 before the war finally ended and the prisoners who survived the death camps across Europe were liberated.

Some of the major figures in the Holocaust:

Adolf Hitler in 1921 became Hitler's NSDAP leader, Führer. One can say that he is the person you first think of when talking about World War 2.
In 1933 he became the dictator of Germany. He was until 1945 at the end of the war, when he committed suicide. Hitler and the Nazi Party made no secret of his racist outlook on people and their abhorrence of the democratic society and its value.

Joseph Goebbels: Head of the Propaganda Ministry. He built up the cult of Hitler as the great Führer.

Herman Goering: Marshal of the Realm, played an important role in the Nazi Party building. He established the first concentration camps. He was also responsible for the bloody purges within the Nazi party.

Theodor Eicke: It was he who drew up models of all concentration camps.

Heinrich Himmler: SS-chief. 1936 he becomes head of the German police and therefore powerful. He was rasfanatiker and Hitler's instrument of terror and genocide.
But he also held secret peace negotiations with the Allies and was fired after Hitler got to know this.

Most of the top leaders during the Holocaust took his life in World War 2 final phase.

My thoughts:

I think this with the Holocaust is really terrible. How could they be so stupid that it wanted to eliminate people who do not belong to the Aryan race, or were different? It's something I do not understand, it's so horrible.
I think that all people, regardless of race, brown eyes as blue-eyed, disabled, homosexuals, are equal!

    Has been involved in a project "Poland project" we read about the Holocaust, especially in Poland and we ended with a trip to all the camps and important places, you have missed the key! You must learn to understand it all from the Nazi angle, if you instead ask yourself, Why? So it might as well be you that help sådanna things happen, I do not blame you but it's so important that people understand this! Otherwise, the risk that the same thing happens again. In fact, a Holocaust already going on right now in the Congo! Good job otherwise!

    You forgot to pick up Eichmann's part of it all. It was he who came up with the plan of mass extermination in concentration camps. Read the book: True Stories of the Second World War or Googling him.
