And for those who say that Germans should be ashamed that they are Germans because of Hitler is strictly unfair. Not every German soldier actually believed in Nazi ideas. Many of them did, yes, and supported the "Final Solution". All soldiers had to fight, and I honestly dont believe every German supported the horrible acts of their government.
It is also a personal theory of mine that neo-Nazis deny the holacaust because they recognize what a terrible thing the holacaust was, and they dont want to believe that the people they admire and believe in could do such a thing. Once again, I am from a Jewish family, and my grandparents went through the holacaust- and so this is probably the most fair definition you will ever get.
Hitler wanted to kill off evey single Jew, Gypsy, homosexual, disabled, Russian POW, some American POW's, and other minorities.
At the end, Hitler killed himself like a little pussy. The Neurenberg(sp?) Trials tryed nazi officials for crimes against humanity and war crimes. One of the main focuses of the Trials was the holocaust.
