´╗┐The Holocaust By: Sara Khalil History Assessment The Holocaust was the result of a long hatred, towards the Jews. It all started when the rumors and racist remarks taught and learnt through generation. There was no big reason in this it was just a little misunderstanding. Racism happened for years but no-one has put an end to it, because it still occurs today and it will in the future.

Conclusion

At the end of the war, between 50,000 and 100,000 Jewish survivors were living in three zones of occupation: American, British and Soviet. Within a year, that figure grew to about 200,000. The American zone of occupation contained more than 90 percent of the Jewish. I think from my own opinion the holocaust should have of never happened. But I have chosen this topic because it seems very interesting because it?s something that people want to know especially when Hitler is involved. From what I can see the holocaust has a big impact on history with a number of people dieing back in 1990, also it shows how people could be so cruel to one another. Reference Page Internet: 1.
