    The Holocaust, also called the Shoah, was the mass extermination and organized genocide of Israel-icon.png Jews, Gypsy-icon.png Gypsy, LGBT-icon.png Homosexuals, disabled people, Soviet-icon.png Soviets, Panslavic-icon.png Slavs, Communists, Jehovah's Witnesses and other minority races during World War 2 that Nazi-icon.png Nazi Germanyball considered subhuman to the Aryan race (or untermensch). Political opponents and captured POWs were also killed in these camps. Denmarkball is one of the only countryballs to defend its Jews during the Holocaust.

    Nazi Germanyball implemented the genocide in stages, with at first passing laws restricting the rights of the Jewish people. Starting in 1933, Nazi Germanyball began to build concentration camps for the "undesirables," and when the Reich invaded Poland, he set up segregated ghettos and mass extermination camps within the occupied lands, with one of the most notable ones being the infamous Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp.

    Japanese-Empire-icon.png Japanese Empireball rounded up Israel-icon.png Jewcubes in the Shanghai Ghetto but refused to kill them despite Nazi-icon.png Naziball's Pleas.

    In total an estimated 6 million Jews were killed and around 5 million others in the Holocaust.

    The Holocaust: What is it?[edit | edit source]

    It was estimated that around 17 million people were killed in the German concentration camps. These camps were so barbaric in their nature they were referred to as "death" and "torture" camps. It was considered Europe's worst atrocity committed by Genocide. Millions of religious or ethnic prisoners were gassed or starved to death. Executions were also common and the Nazis referred to this genocide as the "The Final Solution". Many people lost their lives during it, and it tore apart victim's families as well.

    • Twins were used for experiments
    • "Doctors" would kill Prisoners
    • Children and babies were shot and killed
    • Prisoners were fed nothing but bread crumbs and soup
    • Prisoners endured Hard labour
    • Gas chamber were disguised as showers

    In addition to this, a large amount of Holocaust victims never saw a concentration camp- they were just shot to death on the spot. A good example of this type of occurrence was Babi Yar, where the Einsatzgruppen (a series of Nazi death squads) murdered thousands of Jewcubes over a period of two days.

    Death camps[edit | edit source]

    There were many famous and notorious death camps during WW2, due to the genocide inflicted on the so-called "inferior races". These death camps included:

    • Auschwitz: The most infamous one out of all of them, located in Poland-icon.pngPolandball. It was made by the Germans and it killed up to 1.1 million prisoners.
    • Birkenau: An extension of Auschwitz, this was intended to house POWs and to provide more space. it later became a forced labour/extermination camp.
    • Ravensbrück: This camp was known for only holding female prisoners, in which 130,00 to 132,000 women were housed there.
    • Chełmno: A camp built inside of Poland-icon.pngPolandball. The number of deaths range from 152,000 to 340,000. Notorious "gas vans" were the main way of execution.
    • Jasenovac: A Fascist Independent State of Croatia-icon.pngCroatian death camp that was created by the Ustaše. It killed up to 350,000 to 550,000 Serbia-icon.pngSerbs and 30,000 Israel-icon.pngJews.
    • Nocra: It's not as known but 140,000 people were killed there.
    • Treblinka: An extermination camp in Poland-icon.pngPolandball estimated to have racked up about 780,000 deaths.
    • Warsaw: Another notorious concentration and extermination camp in Poland-icon.pngPolandball killing about 20,000 to 35,000 Polish, Greek, Romani, and Belarusian people.
    • Sobibór: Around 200-250 thousand people died in Sobibór, mainly Jews from Poland-icon.pngPoland, France-icon.pngFrance, Germany-icon.pngGermany, the Netherlands-icon.pngNetherlands, Czechoslovakia-icon.pngCzechoslovakia and the Soviet-icon.pngSoviet Union.
    • Risiera di San Sabba: It was located in the Kingdom of Italy-icon.pngKingdom of Italyball but run by Nazi Germanyball. Lots of Jews, political prisoners, and Yugoslavia-icon.pngYugoslavs.

    When Nazi Germany started to fall, many prisoners of the camps went on death marches. The gas chambers of the camps were also dismantled to prevent discovery.

    Aftermath[edit | edit source]

    After Nazi Germany was falling, Soviet-icon.pngSovietball's Army, with the help of USA-icon.pngAmerican and UK-icon.pngBritish Soldiers liberated most of Germany's death camps freeing thousands of innocent people. This was a truly remarkable event. American, British, and Soviet troops saved thousands of innocent people who were awaiting death. After WW2, Germany apologised to the Jews; many German leaders kneeled down and cried while paying respects to the victims. They shall always be remembered. Never forgotten. Victims of the Holocaust shall be safe and the apology Germany did has made the world a greater place. Holocaust survivors have explained what life was like in the concentration camps, some writing about it, like Elie Wiesel's Night.
