From the Paper:

"World War II was the most destructive event in the entirety of human history. Adolf Hitler and his national socialist regime sparked the war with their aggressive expansion of German territories. The ensuing conflict spanned from September 1939 to April 1945 and claimed the lives of over sixty million people worldwide. Approximately one tenth of those killed during the conflict were Jewish civilians, who were victims of the Nazi attempt to exterminate all Jewish ethnicities. Because of its hostile actions, the Nazi Regime was opposed not only by the allied military forces, but also by resistance groups comprised of members from a variety of social backgrounds within the areas occupied by Germany."
