The holocaust refers to any widespread human disaster, but when written Holocaust, its special meaning is the almost complete destruction of the Jews in Europe by Nazi Germany.
(Paragraph 1, Sentence 1 Holocaust)
When the war ended, the Jewish dead in the Holocaust numbered more than 5 million: about 3 million in killing centers and other camps, 1.4 million in shooting operations, and more than 600,000 in ghettos. (Traditional estimates are closer to 6 million.)
(Paragraph 15, Sentence 1 Holocaust)
Auschwitz, near Kraków, was the largest death camp. Unlike the others, it utilized quick-working hydrogen cyanide for the gassings. The victims of Auschwitz came from all Europe: Norway, France, the Low Countries, Italy, Germany, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Poland, Yugoslavia, and Greece. Auschwitz is the place that Vald and his wife were sent to in the last chapter; this is where Vlad last saw his wife.
(Paragraph 14, Sentence 1 Holocaust)
What is Genocide
Genocide means any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as such:(a) Killing members of the group, (b) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part.(Athur)
Genocide And Its Killing
The Nazis developed this Technology; gas chambers, as the Holocaust progressed. In contrast, in pre-modern societies without surveillance, it was easier for individuals to escape detection and thus survive an attempted genocide. Before the development of bombs, accurate guns, and gas chambers, killing was much more individualized and slower — the Nazi death toll would have undoubtedly been lower in the absence of modern technology.
Used in Genocide
In Maus There is constant talk about the Nazis killing Jews and other people. "During the Holocaust it is estimated that the Nazis killed six million Jews as well as several million others." (Spiegelman)
