The emergence of the holocaust began with extremely nationalistic propaganda that was spread by the Nazi party. The meaning of the word Holocaust could be traced to Greece and means “sacrifice by fire”. In the wake of 1933, Nazi party soon controlled the German government and began to the implement what was referred to as “ethnic cleansing” in the form of the Holocaust. The Nazi government spread dreadful racial theories which included the obsessive view of Germany being a superior race and the Jews being sub-humans. The Nazis also felt a sense of urgency to exterminate the Jews whom they felt would jeopardize the purity of the German race.
