Bone Chilling Pictures of Jews Being Humiliated And Led Off To Be Exterminated By Nazi Germany
The Holocaust was a genocide in which approximately six million Jews were killed by Adolf Hitler’s Nazi regime and its collaborators. Some historians use a definition of the Holocaust that includes the additional five million non-Jewish victims of Nazi mass murders, bringing the total to approximately eleven million. Killings took place throughout Nazi Germany and German-occupied territories.
From 1941 to 1945, Jews were systematically murdered in a genocide, one of the largest in history, and part of a broader aggregate of acts of oppression and killings of various ethnic and political groups in Europe by the Nazi regime. Every arm of Germany’s bureaucracy was involved in the logistics and the carrying out of the genocide, turning the Third Reich into “a genocidal state”.
Of the nine million Jews who had resided in Europe before the Holocaust, approximately two-thirds were killed. A network of about 42,500 facilities in Germany and German-occupied territories were used to concentrate, confine, and kill Jews and other victims. Over 200,000 people are estimated to have been Holocaust perpetrators.
German war photographers took pictures of all that happened in the Third Reich that included the treatment of the Jews. We have made a selection of these pictures that have been made available by the Bundesarchiv.
