The Holocaust

The Holocaust
The Holocaust, sometimes called The Shoah (Hebrew 'שוא'), refers to the planned deportation and killing of people by Nazi Germany. Six million Jews were killed, and many other millions that the Nazis said were undesirable (eg, Gypsies, Homosexuals, Communists). Many were rounded up, put in ghettos, forced to work in concentration camps and then killed in massive Gas chambers.
The numbers below are not exact, since many of those killed were never registered. The numbers given below are those most scholars agree on.
Two million other civilians were killed with machine guns, torture, or were beaten until they died. Many Soviet prisoners of war and civilians were killed.
