The Holocaust

Nazi's Enemies Life from 1933-1939

During the Holocaust, or the state-sponsored, systematic persecution and annihilation of European Jewry by Nazi Germany and its collaborators, between 1933 and 1945, Nazis held Jews in concentration camps, or . Concentration camps were places where they held the Jews under harsh conditions. After Germany initiated WWII theses camps became growing because they started taking in more Jews and then began arresting other races. Later these camps turned into killing centers for the Nazis to round up and annihilate their real and perceived enemies so that they could make the world the perfect race.

US Government and Press Involvment

Throughout the holocaust the US looked at it from two different standpoints, the press and the government. When Germany initiated the "final solution" or the holocaust the US government received a report from the WJC or World Jewish Congress that the Germans were annihilating the Jewish race. The US, Great Britain, and ten other Allied governments made a declaration stating that Germany would be responsible for these crimes. The press did not normally publicize the final solution however they did begin to publish more as the violence increased in 1939-1941, but they continued to not state the victims

Nazi Rise to Power

Throughout the 1920's no one main  political party was able to gain control of the government. The Nazi party establish popularity for advertising themselves as a protester of the Wiemar system. The Nazis main goal was to make a "National Community" where everyone was the same in race, religion, and class.
