  • In 1934, Hitler became Germany's head state. He introduced anti-Semitic Laws that discriminated against Jewish people living in the areas he controlled.
  • In 1935, the Nazis announced new laws which institutionalized many of the racial theories prevalent in Nazi ideology.
  • The concentration camps also became sites for the mass murder of small targeted groups deemed dangerous for political or racial reasons by the Nazi authorities.
  •  In 1938, SS authorities had begun to exploit the labor of concentration camp prisoners for economic profit.
  • From 1938, Jews in the camps were identified by a yellow star sewn onto their prison uniforms. After 1939, the prisoners were easily identified by a marking system combining a colored triangle with lettering.
  • The Nazis had some children killed and executed in the "killing center", but those who had survived... were used for forced labor.
  • To prosecute the leaders of the Holocaust,the International Military Tribunal in Nuremberg was formed in 1946. Twelve leading Nazis were sentenced to death and their leader Hitler commited suicide a few days before.
