A displaced persons camp or DP camp is a temporary facility for displaced persons coerced into forced migration. The term is mainly used for camps established after World War II in West Germany and in Austria, as well as in the United Kingdom, primarily for refugees from Eastern Europe and for the former inmates of the Nazi German concentration camps. Even two years after the end of World War II in Europe, some 850,000 people still lived in DP camps across Western Europe, among them Armenians, Poles, Latvians, Lithuanians, Estonians, Yugoslavs, Greeks, Ukrainians and Czechoslovaks From 1945 to 1952, more than 250,000 Jewish displaced persons (DPs) lived in camps and urban centers in Germany, Austria, and Italy. These facilities were administered by Allied authorities and the United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration (UNRRA). Among the concerns facing these Jewish DPs in the years following the Holocaust were the problems of daily life in the displaced persons camps, Zionism, and emigration. The Holocaust (from the Greek ὁλόκαυστος holókaustos: hólos, "whole" and kaustós, "burnt")also known as the Shoah (Hebrew:, HaShoah, "catastrophe"; Yiddish:, Churben or Hurban, from the Hebrew for "destruction"), was the mass murder or genocide of approximately six million Jews during World War II, a programme of systematic state-sponsored murder by Nazi Germany, led by Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party, throughout German-occupied territory.Of the nine million Jews who had resided in Europe before the Holocaust, approximately two-thirds were killed.Over one million Jewish children were killed in the Holocaust, as were approximately two million Jewish women and three million Jewish men. A network of over 40,000 facilities in Germany and German-occupied territory were used to concentrate, hold, and kill Jews and other victims.Some scholars argue that the mass murder of the Romani and people with disabilities should be included in the definition,and some use the common noun "holocaust" to describe other Nazi mass murders, including those of Soviet prisoners of war, Polish and Soviet civilians, and homosexuals.Recent estimates based on figures obtained since the fall of the Soviet Union indicates some ten to eleven million civilians and prisoners of war were intentionally murdered by the Nazi regime.The persecution and genocide were carried out in stages. Various laws to remove the Jews from civil society, most prominently the Nuremberg Laws of 1935, were enacted in Germany before the outbreak of World War II in Europe. Concentration camps were established in which inmates were subjected to slave labor until they died of exhaustion or disease. Where Germany conquered new territory in Eastern Europe, specialized paramilitary units called Einsatzgruppen murdered Jews and political opponents in mass shootings. The occupiers required Jews and Romani to be confined in overcrowded ghettos before being transported by freight train to extermination camps where, if they survived the journey, most were systematically killed in gas chambers. Every arm of Germany's bureaucracy was involved in the logistics that led to the genocides, turning the Third Reich into what one Holocaust scholar has called "a genocidal state". referred to as theShoah,[c]was agenocidein which some six million EuropeanJewswere killed byAdolf Hitler'sNazi Germany, and theWorld WarIIcollaborators with the Nazis. The victims included1.5million children, and constituted about two-thirds of the nine million Jews who had previously resided inContinental Europe. A broader definition of the Holocaust includes non-Jewish victims, such as theRomani,Poles, members of otherSlavic ethnic groups, andAktion T4patients who were killed because they were mentally and physically disabled. An even broader definition includesSoviet citizens,prisoners of war,homosexuals,Jehovah's Witnesses,blacks,political opponents of the Nazis, and members of other smaller groups. From 1941 to 1945, Jews were systematically murdered in a genocide, which was part of a larger event that included the persecution and murder of other peoples in Europe. Under the coordination of theSS, with directions from the highest leadership of theNazi Party, every arm of Germany's bureaucracy was involved in both the logistics and the carrying out of the mass murder. Killings were committed throughoutGerman-occupied Europe, as well as within Nazi Germany itself, and they were also committed across allterritories controlled by its allies. Other victims of Nazi crimes includedethnic Poles,Ukrainians, andother Slavs; Soviet citizens andSoviet Witnesses; and others. Some 42,500 detention facilities were utilized in the concentration of victims for the purpose of committing gross violations ofhuman rights. Over 200,000 people are estimated to have beenHolocaust perpetrators. The persecution was carried out in stages, culminating in the policy of extermination which was termed the "Final Solutionto theJewish Question". FollowingHitler's rise to power, the German government passed laws to exclude Jews from civil society, most prominently theNuremberg Laws of 1935. Starting in 1933 the Nazis began to establish a network ofconcentration camps. After theoutbreak of warin 1939 both German and foreign Jews wereherded into wartime ghettos. In 1941, as Germany began to conquer new territory in the East, all anti-Jewish measures radicalized. Specialized paramilitary units around two million Jews in mass shootings in less than a year. By mid-1942, victims were regularly being transported byfreight trainstoextermination camps. Most who survived the journey were systematically killed ingas chambers. This continued until theend of World War II in Europein April–May 1945. Jewish armed resistancewas limited. The most notable exception was theWarsaw Ghetto uprisingof 1943, when thousands of poorly-armed Jewish fighters held theWaffen-SSat bay for four weeks. An estimated 20,000–30,000Jewish partisansactively fought against the Nazis and their collaborators in Eastern Europe.French Jewstook part in theFrench Resistance, which conducted a guerilla campaign against both the Nazis and theVichy French authorities. Over a hundred armed Jewish uprisings took place. 380
