In the forefront of Hitler’s troops were the Wehrmacht, which had some of the most elite, most powerful, and most brutal soldiers in the world.

    Called Ho-Shoah in Hebrew, the Holocaust was, undoubtedly, the most painful and devastating man-made disaster the world has ever seen. In the simplest of terms, it was nothing more than a government sponsored murder trip, in which millions of innocent people lost their lives, simply because one believed - and taught - that his bloodline was better than the rest. From Jews to homosexuals, innumerable people died, their screams echoing through the silences we observe for them even today.
