The Holocaust began in 1933 when Adolf Hitler came to power in Germany and ended in 1945 with the Allied defeat of the Nazis. Led by Hitler, the Nazis conducted a systematic mass murder of an estimated 6 million Jews in Europe.  Additionally, the Nazi's killed Jehovah’s Witnesses, homosexuals, disabled people, Gypsies, POWs, and political and religious dissenters. It is estimated that altogether 11 million people perished under the Nazis in the Holocaust.
