THE TRAGEDY OF THE HOLOCOUST
The word «Holocaust» makes the blood run cold since it’s hard to imagine that some seven decades ago an attempt was made to completely exterminate the whole nation! It is considered that the beginning of the Holocaust is January 1933 when Hitler came to power in Germany and the end of the general misery is May 8, 1945. A book exhibition «The Tragedy of the Holocaust» is presented at the Scientific Library of Yuriy Fedkovych Chernivtsi National University, the publications reveal the schemes of the destruction of Jewry – millions of Jews became subjects of humiliation, discrimination, slave labor, torture and death. The Nazis and their accomplices in other countries have traced each Jew – from an outstanding specialist to a simple worker – they desired a complete «Solution of the Jewish Question».
According to scientists, during the Holocaust, about 60% of Jews in Europe were killed, the same figure reaches one-third of the Jewish population in the world.
We all Ukrainians understand the horror of this tragedy because of a terrible Holodomor which took place a bit earlier in Ukraine and according to various estimates, took from 7 to 11 million lives!
