The Holocaust, occurring round 1941 until 1945 was a time when millions of Jewish people were killed. Under the direction of Adolf Hitler, ruler and dictator, Nazi soldiers went from city to city, town to town, removing Jews from what they knew as home and sending them to concentration camps or prisons. During their incarceration they were treated very poorly, rationed food, worked as slaves, and then eventually killed. Some of the Jewish people were fortunate enough to escape, fleeing to other countries to start over with little to nothing. For those who were not so lucky, became a victim of Hitler and the Nazi regime.
