Approximately 6 million Jews and 5 million others including Roma people, Poles, Russian prisoners of war, political prisoners, homosexuals, people of colour, Jehovah’s Witnesses, and various other minorities were first persecuted and then murdered. How, both morally and logistically, had this came to happen?
