2.1 What is education about the Holocaust?

 

The term “Holocaust” (or  Shoah,  meaning “catastrophe” in the Hebrew language) is used to refer to the systematic, bureaucratic, state-sponsored persecution and murder of six million Jews by Nazi Germany and its collaborators. Holocaust is a word of Greek origin meaning “sacrifice by fire”. The Nazi regime, which came to power in Germany in January 1933, believed that Germans were “racially superior” and that the Jews were an existential threat to the so-called German racial community. During the era of the Holocaust, German authorities also targeted other groups because of their perceived “racial inferiority”; among them were Roma (Gypsies), people with disabilities, and some of the Slavic peoples (Poles, Russians and others). Other groups were persecuted on political, ideological and behavioural grounds, among them Communists, Socialists, Jehovah’s Witnesses and homosexuals.
