The Holocaust was an unprecedented event in human history: a complete and systematic genocide, organized with breathtaking efficiency by Nazi Germany and its collaborators, with the aim of annihilating the Jewish people. The primary motivation was the Nazis’ anti-Semitic racist ideology. Between 1933 and 1941 Nazi Germany pursued a policy that dispossessed the Jews of their rights and their property, followed by the marking, concentration and isolation of the Jewish population. Following the invasion of the Soviet Union, the Nazis and their collaborators launched a new stage of their industry of death: the systematic mass murder of all Jews.
The Nazis became completely obsessed with the genocide of the Jews, so much so, that even during the last months and weeks of the war, while their forces were struggling at the front, the operation continued, and the Nazis prioritized above all the transfer of Jews in trains directly to the death camps. By 1945 nearly six million Jews had been murdered.
Antisemitism is on the rise around the world. With the increase in incidents of reported antisemitism around the world, there’s also been a growth in different expressions of antisemitism that demonize Israel and Israelis and attribute Israel’s perceived faults to its Jewish character.
