This paper depicts the Holocaust in Germany in its initial phases and outlines the persecution endured by the Jews. The paper describes how from 1933, Hitler began to take away the rights of German Jews until they did not even possess the right to live. The paper explains why more Jews of Germany did not leave the country and notes the limited success of the kindertransport operation.

From the Paper:

"The Holocaust was the systematic, bureaucratic annihilation of six million Jews by the Nazi regime and their collaborators as a central act of state during World War II. In 1933 approximately nine million Jews lived in the 21 countries of Europe that would be occupied by Germany during the war. By 1945 two out of every three European Jews had been killed. Although Jews were the primary victims, hundreds of thousands of Roma (Gypsies) and at least 250,000 mentally or physically disabled persons were also victims of Nazi genocide. As Nazi tyranny spread across Europe from 1933 to 1945, millions of other innocent people were persecuted and murdered.
"After Hitler took over power in 1933, persecution of the Jews started in Germany and other territories invaded by him. The persecution lasted till 1941. Hitler invaded Poland in 1939 and the Soviet Union in 1941. At about the same time, he decided that there should be a 'final solution' to the 'Jewish question'. The final solution was the extermination of the Jews. A German millitary group known as the S S and a special security group the S.D, which the Gestapo was a part of, carried out this extermination. (Dalrymple, James 1992)"
