The Holacaust was the attempt of Nazi Germany during WWII to kill every single Jew, homosexual, Roma, disabled, Russian POW's, and many many other minorities. 6 million Jews were killed and 5 million Roma, gay, disabled, and other peopel who Hitler claimed were "inferior"were killed. 11 million in total. I am of a Jewish family. All my grandparents were in the Holacaust. Just my grandma alone- she came from a family of almost 100 people. Of those original 100- my grandma and 3 others survived. And for those of you who deny the holacaust- where did 96 people just from my grandma's family alone go? Where they shipped off the planet? Whatever happened to them?
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.
During the holocaust 11 million were killed.
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.
something that did happen, but 11 million people were killed, everyone hears about the 7 million Jews who died, but no one even cares about the 5 million peasants, christians, Roman Catholics, and others who were killed
not only the jewish poeple sufered during the holocaust
1. The Holocaust applied to the organized government persecution and genocide
of various ethnic, religious and political groups during World War II
Germany and collaborators. This was mostly aimed at Jewish people - called: "Final Solution
of the Jewish Question
", however in the Roma and Sinti were also targets as were other “objectionable” groups of people – Poles, Soviet POW (Inc. Russians and other Slavs), mentally or physically disabled, homosexuals, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Communists, people who objected to the government and criminals. Estimates place the total number of Holocaust victims at up to 26 million people, although the number 9 to 11 million is usually held as more reliable. Alternatively Holocaust deniers or revisionists believe that the holocaust did not occur – far fewer that approx. 6 million Jews were killed. Holocaust revisionists also deny that extermination of Jews and other groups was not a centrally-planned Nazi attempt. This argument is generally dismissed by most historical groups due to aural, written, visual and archeological evidence.

People need to know that in the Holocaust not ONLY did Jews die but homosexuals and Gypsies did too, why you ask? hell if I know, Hitler didn't like anyone who wasn't straight or Aryan.
