There’s not many ways that you can make sense of a tragedy like the Holocaust. Understanding the details of what happened, however, can make it much easier for everyone to remember this event and help keep something like it from happening in the future. During the Holocaust, more than 11 million men, women, and children were killed by the Nazi Party in Germany simply because they did not fit the criteria for being of the ‘Master Race’.
Making Sense of the Holocaust Outcome
Many of the Nazi war criminals that were wanted after the end of World War II were captured and tried for their crimes. Others committed suicide to avoid punishment and to carry on the Nazi belief of ‘death before dishonor’. Of course, some of the most wanted men from the Nazi Party actually fled the country and tried to move on with a new life as a new person somewhere else.

Many events in history are marked by a certain date. The Holocaust is no different. Countries around the world recognize a variety of Holocaust Memorial days, including the United States that honors those lost in April and May of every year. Usually it is led by a week-long event that is planned by the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum. Every city and state throughout the U.S. might have their own remembrance events and days during this week.
