My word was pogrom, I learned that it is a riot that is directed towards a person or group. During world war 2 many people were killed by others because they didn't have the same beliefs. Homes were also destroyed if the person wasn't killed. I got my information and pictures from wikipedia.

My word was prejudice, Prejudice is a judgment or opinion formed before the facts are know. In most cases, these opinions are founded on suspicion, intolerance, and hatred of other races, religions, or nationalities. It is said that Hitler was prejudice because he was a failed artist who's are was rejected by seven people, out of the seven four were Jewish. It is also said that Hitler simply wanted someone to blame for ww1 and Jewish people were they unlucky targets of his hate. I found my information at http://www.lebjournal.com

I had Jehovah's witnesses. They were people whose religion didn't allow them to swear loyalty to any person or thing. They didn't believe in politics and they weren't allowed to salute flags or anything like that. They were enemies of Hitler because they wouldn't salute his flag and they wouldn't vote for him.

I got the word Holocaust. It was an executed plan to kill all Jews. They ended up killing 6 million Jews and millions of other people. The word Holocaust came from the Greek word Holokauston, meaning to burn with fire

I got the word Jehovah's witnesses. They were people whose religion didn't allow them to participate in politics and they couldn't swear to a higher power.

My word is death camps, and it is a camp that had the only porpise of killing and nothing else. These are diffrant from the concentration camps and they were the most feared tool of the Nazis and were used for everyone and no one else.
