The Holocaust was a horrible time in world history. In this BrainPOP movie, Tim and Moby will teach you what the Holocaust was, when it happened, and some of the forces that led up to it. You’ll find out who Hitler was, what his Nazi party promised, and how he rose to power. You’ll also learn what genocide is, and what the Jews were blamed for. Plus, you’ll find out a little about the history of anti-Semitism in Europe and why it was legal and even encouraged to harass Jews. Find out what Kristallnacht means as well as what happened at concentration camps. It’s sad, but talking about it is a good way to make sure that it never happens again!
