There has been many other Holocausts in the world but this is esspecially remembered because it is the first time a religous group hads been identified as a ethnic or social class.

In 1940's German leader Adolf Hitler along with his Nazi party decided that all those not meeting Aryan standards or did not have a life worth living should be exterminated . Almost 11 million dead. 6 million of these people were Jewish. Other racial/ethnic groups targeted include Roma(Gypsies), German male homosexuals, German mentally/phisically impaired,Soviet POWs, Jehovah's Witnesses,Germans openly against nazi regime, people pf Polish decent, Slavic people, and people of African decent.

This term comes from Roman text meaning a sacrafical fire. This makes it seem almost as if this was being used for the good of a population. In hebrew and now being used in modern text as the Shoah which means complete destruction and anhiliation.
The Holocaust was one of the darkest times in mondern day Europe's history.
