THE HOLOCAUST

  • Great destruction resulting in the extensive loss of life, especially by fire
  • The genocide of European Jews and other “undesirables” by the Nazis during World War II
  • Hitler killed over 12 million “undesirables” which 6 million were Jews in his concentration camps
slide13
My first and foremost task will be the annihilation of the Jews.

"All the human culture, all the results of art, science, and technology that we see before us today, are almost exclusively the creative product of the Aryan..."

"The mightiest counterpart to the Aryan is represented by the Jew."

"And so I believe to-day that my conduct is in accordance with the will of the Almighty Creator. In standing guard against the Jew I am defending the handiwork of the Lord."

THE HOLOCAUST

slide14
The final solution itself ... to put it bluntly, the extermination of the Jews, was not provided for by Reich Law.

It was a Führer\'s Order, a so-called Führer\'s Order. Adolf Eichmann, 1960-61

THE HOLOCAUST

A Common Enemy
