Essential to every understanding of the Holocaust, or Shoah, is the understanding of the History, Places and People which form the structural framework of the times in which the Shoah occurred. The German Word, Zeitgeist meaning literally 'ghost of the times' or spirit of the times alerts us to the necessity of understanding that the overwhelming events of Shoah were colored by the Politics of the time, the Way the Germans and others understood the World and the descriptions of that world around them, both literal and figurative. Below, you will find links to sections of this Page which help provide an understanding of the Shoah.
