Weapons Used in the Holocaust?

Every time I search I find things like "Are we going to have another Holocaust, and are people planning to start another Holocaust". I can't find a good answer. So, if you have any answers to my question(What were the weapons used in the 1940's during the Holocaust), please answer!

  2. corduroys says:

    The Holocaust was an aspect of World War 2. Hitler wanted to eradicate people he considered inferior – Jews, Gypsies, Blacks, Homosexuals and basically anyone he didn’t like. Hitler never killed any of these himself, but he had loads of followers willing to do so!The Holocaust was the rounding up of these people and the organized murder of them.Obviously nobody would have gone without a struggle so they were LIED TO!The greatest wepon of the Holocaust was the LIE!THey were told they were going to camps to work, or to special communites or better places. When they arrived it was too late and tehy were brutalized and controlled wit h guns and fear before being shot or killed with gas or exhaust fumes or chemicals or cruel medical experiments and worse.

  4. unbewitched says:

    Ovens for baking people to death. Gas chambers to gas them to death, bullets to shoot them, then push them into pits, alot still alive and bury them alive. Medical experiments, not weapons per say but the testing maimed, tortured and killed thousands. Bayonettes, maiming prisoners. Torture as a weapn to dehumanize and brutilize people, got enough? You did not read much did you, you need to google, and put in treatment of prisoners holocaust, have tissues near by, and expect a really bad night after reading about it. One of the biggest black marks that humans could ever do.

  23. hel-cos says:

    You name it, it was used against all the people in the Holocaust

  24. anacatadidymus says:

    no they didnt want to waste guns and ammo so they buired them and used and gas called Hydrogen cyanide (hcn)

  25. rossinc says:

    It really depends on the period of the Holocaust you’re talking about. Some weapons were used through out the Holocaust, but were used more heavily in certain periods than in others. Guns were used through out, but one of the big problems the Nazis had with guns was that they were wasting ammo exterminating holocaust victims that they could use in fighting the war. So they had to find a better way than just lining folks up and shooting ‘em. That was the gas chambers. They made the victims believe they were going to take a shower only to suddenly lock them in and drop in Zyklon B, which was a cyanide based insecticide. But this doesn’t mean victims still weren’t gunned down. If they tried escaping the camps or those rounding them up you can bet they were shot dead.
