Facts about Holocaust The Holocaust began in 1933 when Adolf Hitler came to power in Germany. It ended in 1945 when Allied powers defeated the Nazis. Once World War II began, the Nazis ordered all Jews to wear a yellow Star of David on their clothing so they could be easily targeted. Jews were forced to live in specific areas of the city called ghettos after the beginning of World War ll. In the larger ghettos, up to 1,000 people a day were picked up and brought by train to concentration camps or death camps. Though Anne Frank hid in a Attic of an office.
Deaths In prison camps, prisoners were forced to do hard physical labor. Torture and death within concentration camps were common and frequent. 11 million people were killed during the Holocaust (1.1 million children). 6 million of those victims were Jewish. Other groups targeted by the Nazis were Jehovah’s Witnesses, disabled people, and Gypsies. Two-thirds of Jewish people living in Europe at the time of World War II were killed by Nazis.
