The Nazis killed over 6 million Jews during the holocaust and that accounts for more then two thirds of the total European Jewish population.
Eleven million people were killed in total by the Nazis during the holocaust.
The word holocaust comes from the Greek word holokausten which means sacrifice by fire, referring to the way the Nazis cruelly exterminated the “non-german” population.
"When the soldiers pulled over to share some food and cigarettes and to poke at the package of Jews, one of the prisoners collapsed from starvation and sickness." - Narration by Death, p.389
"Stars of David were plastered to their shirts, and misery was attached to them as if assigned. 'Dont forget your misery...' In some cases, it grew on them like a vine." - Narration by Death, p.392
"Their gaunt faces were stretched with torture. Hunger ate them as they continued forward, some of them watching the ground to avoid the people on the side of the road. Some looked appealingly at those who had come to observe humiliation, this prelude to their deaths. Others pleaded for someone, anyone to step forward and catch them in their arms." - Narration by Death, p.392
