Below please find a web question on the Holocaust written by your classmate, Victoria Karcz. Please respond with a reply of at least one paragraph.
The Holocaust was a human-made horror, the genocide of millions of human beings labeled “undesirables” by Hitler. Of all the innocent people targeted by Hitler’s genocidal policies, the European Jewish population represented the largest group. The heinous Nazis sought nothing less than the extermination of the Jewish population. The Nazis at first had planned to deport the Jews to Nisko/Lublin in eastern Poland or to the island of Madagascar. Why did they not pursue their plan for deportation and pursue what they called “the final solution?”
