No, the Nazis were as opposed to Communism as they were to Jews, homosexuals, Roma, and anyone else they didn't like. But in the case of communism, their opposition was based on a very real and legitimate fear of political opposition. Communism was strong and tempting to millions of impoverished Germans in the 20's and early 30's. The Nazis were fascists, combining suppression of human rights with a devotion to the private-enterprise capitalists who provided the war machinery. Note that the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact, an alliance between the Soviets and the Nazis, took everyone by surprise, because it seemed like something the Nazis would never do, ally with their enemies. And, in fact, the Nazis simply ignored that pact when they chose and invaded the U.S.S.R. The final verdict was that the Soviets reached Berlin as or before the Allies did, and East Germany was in fact a communist state until the collapse of the Berlin Wall in 1989. Yes, people associated communism with Jews, you're right about that. But your logic that communism therefore indirectly caused the Holocaust is utterly faulty. What caused the Holocaust was the behavior of Nazi Germany, which has no excuses, and very few reasonable explanations.
