the process of removing the Jews
When Hitler became Chancellor in 1933, the German government began passing laws removing the rights of the Jews as citizens. Ultimately the Jews were forced by law to live in specific zones within the cities, called ghettos. From there, the Nazis deported many Jews to labor camps and death camps. In addition to the Jews, the Nazis targeted other minority groups including, political dissidents, the disabled and those with genetic diseases, the Roma or Gypsies, the Poles, Soviet POWs, male homosexuals and Jehovah’s Witnesses.
