The Holocaust was an event during WWII. Where Hitler killed many, many Jews, and had camps to put them to work, and kill them. What we learned about, though, was the Star Of David. The Star of David is a symbol in Jewdism, it means " Well being " and " Good fortune ". This is important, because during the Holocaust, Hitler made Jews sew it to their lapel's, as if to try to himuliate them, or dehumanize them. The well off Jews were spared.
