Jehovah's Witnesses

Jehovah's Witnesses truly digstinguished themselves for standing up for their faith. The Nazis offered to set them free if they would simply rencouce their faith but the Witnesses refused to. It as if they would rather die than renouce their faith. Historian Detlef Garbe said this of the witnesses,"no other religious movement resisted the pressure to conform to National Socialiasm with compared unanimity and steadfastness." Not only did they stand up for themselves but they helped the other prisoners to endure by teaching them about their god and singing songs to keep their spirits up. They went so far to even give up their last piece of bread to help the sick and weak. They truly distigushed themselves as a group not willing to bow down to Hilter's rule.

Homosexuals and Disabled People

Hilter wanted one thing and that was for there to be a master race. Which meant that only perfect German's would be alowed to survive, so anyone with a disability, including Germans, were persecuted along with homosexuals. Hilter looked at the war as a perfect time to get rid of anyone who had an incureable disease. Hilter killed about 200,000 disabled people during the war. During this time homosexuality was against the law in Germeny. The Germans believed homosexuals to be weak men who could not fight for the German nation. Interestingly enough there is no number of how many homosexuals died.

Roma Gypsies

Besides the Jews, the Gypsies were the one race were Hilter murdered the moost people, an outstanding 250,000 people. They looked at the Gypsies as if they were inferior to them and that they killing them for the good of the world. Much like the Jews, they were put in concentration camps and forced to work in extreme circumstances. Many were killed in gass chambers or in front of a firing squad. The Gypsies were very much victims of a racial genicide.
