5.04 Holocaust: HonorsHow does the Holocaust compare or contrast to other instances of genocide? Agenocide that I’m going to compare and contrast to the Holocaust is the Bosnia-Herzegovina. They both involve a group of people who believe they are ethnic cleansingdifferent religions. Holocaust involved the ethnic cleansing of Jews and the Bosniagenocide involved the ethnic cleansing of Muslims. I am going to talk about the twogenocides then compare and contrast them at the end.First, we are going to talk about the Holocaust. The Holocaust happened aroundthe time of 1933 to 1945. It all started with the anti-Semitism, which means the hatred ofJews. Jews were treated very horribly during this time. In the beginning, they startedmaking rules that Jews couldn’t marry non-Jews and prevented Jews from serving inthe military. Hitler’s final solution made Jews live in ghettos and were brought toconcentration camps. Hitler’s forces have murdered nearly two thirds of the Jews inEurope. Other’s were either beaten, raped, or forced to flee.
