The Holocaust was a terrible event that took place during World War 2. Hitler was the German leader who only wanted Aryans alive.
What is an Aryan? I thought Hitler just hated Jews
An Aryan is someone who has blond hair and blue eyes. Hitler wanted these people to take over the world. He also did not just hate the Jewish. He hated people who had disabilities, who were polish, and who had a sexuality that wasn't straight.
Hitler blamed Jewish people for economic woes because they liked to save their money instead of inputting it into the economy. He also blamed the Jews for the loss of WW1, because they took up a large portion of Germany's population.Most jews have brown hair and hazel eyes, so Hitler decided to praise those who were not like that, the Aryans.
