© HarperCollins Publishers 2010 Significance What was the Holocaust? ‘The Holocaust was the murder of approximately six million Jews by the Nazis and their collaborators. Between the German invasion of the Soviet Union in the summer of 1941 and the end of the war in Europe in May 1945, Nazi Germany and its accomplices strove to murder every Jew under their control. Because Nazi discrimination against the Jews began with Hitler's accession to power in January 1933, many historians consider this the start of the Holocaust era. The Jews were not the only victims of Hitler's regime, but they were the only group that the Nazis sought to destroy entirely.’ Here is the definition from Yad Vashem, the Jewish people’s living memorial to the Holocaust in Jerusalem, Israel:

The Nazis had used concentration camps to hold their enemies but now new camps were built. These were ‘Death Camps’, where the Jews would be killed. All six camps were built in Poland at locations chosen for their good rail links and relative isolation. Jews from German-occupied countries all over Europe were to be rounded up, sent there by train, and gassed.
