The Holocaust WebQuest Introduction The Task The Process Resources Conclusion
Introduction • Between the years of 1933 and 1945 the Nazi Tyranny spread across Europe. During this time millions of innocent people were persecuted and murdered. The Jewish population were the primary victims. Six million Jews were persecuted during this time. By 1945 two out of every three Jews had been killed. Other groups that were targeted included: Gypsies, mentally or physically challenged individuals, Poles, Slavs, and Soviet prisoners of war. In addition thousands of political and religious groups were targeted such as communists, socialists, and Jehovah Witnesses. The concentration camp is most closely associated with the Holocaust and continues to remain a distinctive symbol of the Nazi regime. • home
