Jews were the primary victims – six million were murdered. Roma and Sinti [Gypsies], disabled Germans, and Poles were also targeted for destruction or decimation for racial, ethnic, or national reasons.
Millions more, including queer victims, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Soviet prisoners of war, and political dissidents also suffered grievous oppression and death under Nazi Germany.
