The Holocaust is what we call the Nazi attempt to destroy European Jewry.
It was part of a vast operation in genocide which, between 1939 and 1945,
caused the following deaths:
|Soviet prisoners of war||Over 3 million|
|Soviet civilians||2 million|
|Polish civilians||Over 1 million|
|Yugoslav civilians||Over 1 million|
|Men, women, and children with mental and physical deficiencies||70,000|
