    "This documentary studies the step-by-step process that led the medical profession in the Third Reich down an unethical road to genocide. It graphically documents the racial theories and eugenics principles that set the stage for the doctors' participation in sterilization and euthanasia, the selections at the death camps, as well as inhuman and unethical human experimentation. It provides the historical basis for many current dilemmas in bio-ethical work."

    I know you probably didn't mean anything by it, but referring to the Holocaust as "Holo" is degrading. Countless innocent people were murdered over senseless and unwarranted hatred.

    Very brief description: Hitler, the Nazi dictator of Germany and racist, wanted to develop a demented "perfect world" of which Germany was the center. To do this he executed millions and millions of people, which included 6 million Jews during the Holocaust.

    There millions of sources for you to look through. I would watch Schindler's List to get an idea of what was going on, but I wouldn't use any movies as reference in research paper.

    If you break the habit of taking shortcuts and being defeatist you will feel so much better about yourself. Nothing is better than a sense of pride. Sure people will say sex is better but it's not if you don't do a good job and feel proud.

    Your typing tells a lot about you too. Is it really easier to do that than to spell the words out and do keyboarding correctly?

    It's just as easy to research it yourself. Instead of the process of going to yahoo answers all you had to do was type in Holocaust in the search bar instead. Then you would have the pride of knowing you did it all yourself.

    The Holocaust

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    (Redirected from Holocaust)

    Jump to: navigation, search

    “Holocaust” redirects here. For other uses, see Holocaust (disambiguation).

    "Selection" of Hungarian Jews at the Auschwitz-Birkenau camp in May/June 1944. To be sent to the right meant slave labor; to the left, the gas chambers. [4]The Holocaust, also known as Ha-Shoah (see below for etymology), is the term generally used to describe the killing of approximately six million European Jews during World War II, as part of a program of deliberate extermination planned and executed by the National Socialist (Nazi) regime in Germany led by Adolf Hitler.[1]

    Other groups were also persecuted and killed by the regime, including some 220,000 Sinti and Roma (see Porajmos), as well as the disabled (see Action T4), homosexuals, Communists and other political prisoners, Jehovah's Witnesses, Polish citizens, and Soviet POWs (Ukrainians, Russians and Byelorussians).[2][3] Many scholars do not include these groups in the scope of the Holocaust, defining it as the genocide of European Jewry, or what the Nazis called the "Final Solution of the Jewish Question" ("Die Endlösung der Judenfrage"). Taking into account all of the victims of Nazi persecution, the death toll rises considerably: estimates generally place the total number of victims at 9 to 11 million.[4]

    The persecution and genocide of the Nazi regime's victims was accomplished in stages. Legislation to remove the Jews from civil society was enacted years before the outbreak of World War II. Where the Third Reich conquered new territory in eastern Europe and Russia, ghettos were established to contain and marginalize the victims. Specialized units, the Einsatzgruppen, murdered large numbers of Jews and political opponents in mass shootings, and in mobile gassing units. In western European countries occupied by the Nazis, Jews were interned before being deported to the death camps, often being transported hundreds of miles by rail, crammed into freight cars. Finally, the machinery of the state was used to kill massive numbers of Jews and others in extermination camps.
