One of Hitler's goals during World War II was the extermination of people
he considered subhuman--people whose race was not Aryan in origin. Among those
groups were Slavs, Gypsies, and Jews. Hitler blamed the Jews in particular
for the disgrace that befell Germany after World War I and for the poor economic
conditions in Germany in the 1920s and 1930s. The Germans boycotted Jewish
business, and Jews were banned from public office and from intermarrying with
non-Jews. Concentration Camps were established at places such as Dachau, Buchenwald,
Auschwitz, Sobibor, Treblinka, and many other places.
