HOLOCAUST PROPAGANDA 2 Holocaust is a term used to label the state-sponsored, bureaucratic and systematic mass prosecution and murder of approximately six million European Jews during the Second World War II by the German Nazi regime and their collaborators. In January 1933, the Nazis came to power in Germany with Adolf Hitler named the governor. Hitler was born in 1889 in Austria and served in the Germany Army during the World War I. Hitler like other German anti-Semites blamed the Jews for the 1918 defeat of Germany.

The Germans invaded, the Soviet Union in 1941, and this marked the next level of brutality as mass killings were carried.
