As we know, the World War II was the great war that we will never forget. The war, which slay millions people, even innocent children whose know nothing about what was going on. The war that brought the greatest holocaust to this world. This worse holocaust started in Germany by a man named Adolf Hitler, who concluded that the Jews were the nationality which made the German people impoverished. Consequently, the war broadened all over the world which including Japan, America, Russia,and Australia.
What is Holocaust? The word 'Holocaust', from the Greek word 'holokauston' meaning "a burnt sacrifice offered to God", in this case it refers to a sacrifice Jews. Nowadays the 'Holocaust' usually refers to the large-scale killings of the Jews, nonetheless it is also used to refer to another genocide as well. The holocaust activated by Adolf Hitler, who be permeated with the vindictiveness of the Jews. After he created Anti-Semitism in Germany and killed most of the Jews in Germany.

Ghettos were in very bad conditions forasmuch as there was too many people live in there, thus one small room had to fit about 8 people. They had limited resources or alternatively, I would say there’s not enough supply for the residents. Jewish people can either get some foods from German officers or the black market, when in fact most of them were poor, so they couldn’t afford to purchase food with exorbitant prices on the black market.
