The holocaust started in 1933 and it ended in 1945. Hitler gathered Germans all over Germany and took those who were Jews, and threw them into concentration camps and labor camps if they could work and they would work to death. If they couldn't work, the Nazis would gather them and execute them by putting them in gas chambers which were also used to take showers. If Germans weren't Jews, they became Nazis and supported Hitler to live and because they believed what he was preaching. The rest of the world didn't what was happening in Germany and when they found out, they were devastated. At the end of the holocaust, the Nazis had killed over 6 million Jews.
Battle of Stalingrad
World War II began when Nazi Germany invaded Poland's capital. This happened on September 1, 1939. Hitler's goal was to gain more land, take over all of Poland, and regain lost territory. Hitler and his army used all sorts of weapons, like trucks, tanks, and machine guns. Germany eventually gained control of Poland.
Battle of Midway
The strike on Pearl Harbor was ordered by General Tojo Hideki. At that time, Japan was in a desperate need of materials and resources for their war with China. The U.S. banned their ties of material and resources for the continuation of Japan's conquest. After all this, there was about 2,403 deaths and 1,143 wounded people.
On June 22, 1941, about four million troops poured across the Russian border. Within one month of fighting, over two and a half million Russians had been wounded, captured, or killed. What came after all this can be described as the nine-month titanic battle. The result that the German's sixth army in Russia was almost completely gone or destroyed. That was the start of the end for Germany. It would still take three more years of intense fighting and millions of people dead before it would finally be over.
The battle of Midway was a navy battle. It was between the Pacific part of Japan and the U.S. The Japanese lost more than they intended, causing them to have trouble replacing things in material and men. This battle was considered a turning point for the war in the pacific.
On May 7, 1945, German high command signs the unconditional surrender of all German forces. Both East and West, in northern France. General Jodi, at first, wanted to limit the terms of German surrender to those still fighting in the western allies.
