Millions of Jews were murdered leaving a scar on the history of the human race.
During World War II, there was an event known as the Holocaust, where six millions Jews were persecuted by the Nazi Germany under the leadership of Adolf Hitler. Previous research has shown that the reason for the persecution of the Jews were because of Hitler’s hatred toward the Jews. In the book, November 9: How World War One Led to the Holocaust by Joachim Riecker, Riecker stated that Hitler 's hatred toward the Jews comes from the belief that Jews were the reason for Germany defeat in World War I and Germany economic crisis.

Anti-Semitism is a noun defined as hostility to or prejudice against Jews. This considered form of racism is extremely hurtful in the sense that it shames the followers of the Jewish religion; furthermore, this intense hatred can more than likely become physically or verbally violent.

Jewish families were ripped apart and sent to different work grounds, also known as concentration camps.
The Holocaust was a persecution and eventual mass murder of Jews during the Nazi regime in the World War II. An estimate of six million Jews were killed, all because of their religion and beliefs.

In 1993 the beginning of the genocide of millions of Jewish people began otherwise known as the Holocaust. The Nazis plan to exterminate all Jewish people was referred to as the Final Solution. During this time period the Jewish people were discriminated against by being segregated, stripped of their identities, and being taken away from everything they own and love and forced into concentration camps.
