The Holocaust was sponsored, systematic persecution and mass murder of European Jews and other groups carriedout by German Nazi and its allies between 1933 and 1945. All European Jews were victims of the Holocaust, but not all the victims were Jews, like other people that hadmentally and physically disabled, homosexuals, gypsies, Soviet prisoners of war and Jehovah’s Witness.
Most German Jews who considered themselves fully German in appearanceand attitude were confused by these new forums of anti-Semitism that focused on their supposed biological and not religious differences. In Nazi Germany, Jews were forbiddento convert to Christianity.
