For thousands of years, Jewish people all over the world have experienced various forms of anti-semitism. This form of discrimination against Jews reached its peak during the Holocaust, which was an enormous tragedy during World War II. Carried out by the German Nazis, the Holocaust culminated with the deaths of approximately 6 million Jews. Many of the helpless victims were forced into concentration camps throughout Europe. Since the tragic events of the Holocaust, various organizations have vowed to combat anti-semitism on global scales. Through education and cooperation, the organizations hope to teach tolerance and unity based on the horrific lessons from the Holocaust. When learning about Jewish life before and during the Holocaust, you will have a greater appreciation for tolerance, unity and other positive emotions towards Jews. You will also value the importance of treating minority groups with more respect and care on all levels of daily life.
