Holocaust Holocaust was a genocide that happened in Europe which Adolf Hitler and his supporters killed about six million Jews that were living in Europe on the verge of the outbreak of the World War II.

The genocide continued until 1945 when World War II came to an end. Furthermore, in concentration camps the Jews were made to stay for long without food and these caused many people to starve to death. In the concentration camps, the living conditions were poor and hence the mortality rate was almost 50%. In 1942, there was high demand of these concentration camps, and this led to Hitler to authorize construction of six larger camps in Poland.These camps were designed for mass killings.

The registration numbers also helped to subdivide labor among the prisoners, but most
