"Shoah" indicates the genocide of the Jewish population and culture perpetrated
from 1935 to 1945 in Germany and the countries of the Axis Alliance during WWII,
following the racist anti-Semitic ideology preached by Adolf Hitler. In this context, some
people tried to save the Jews by hiding them, helping them emigrate with false
documents, feeding them, or giving them a job. Because they saw them suffering, they
helped them in some way instead of remaining indifferent.
There were even people who put their own life at risk to see what was happening in the Nazi concentration camps, where Jews were deported, and testify irrefutably, against the Nazis' plan to conceal the evidence of extermination.
