Holocaust is a word of Greek origin that means "sacrifice by fire." To most people, the Holocaust was the killing of Jews in concentration camps. However, it was much more than that. It was the persecution and ultimate genocide of Jews, Slavs, and other races considered inferior to the Aryan race.

When a person grows up with a family that has a gang history they are also more likely to join a gang since it is deeply rooted in the family traditions and values. Individuals also join gangs when they have the necessity to have money. In the article Gang joining in Denmark: prevalence and correlates of street gang membership the author explains how people often join gangs so that they can use their affiliation to make a profit through illegal activities, such as selling drugs and auto theft (Pedersen, 2014, p.56).
