Most People have the mistaken belief that there has only been one holocaust. The reason for this is probably because of World War Two, and the fact that one of the holocausts that happened during that time is known as “The Holocausts”. Which makes it sound like there is was only one. The majority of holocausts throughout history are called genocide, even though a lot of genocides are also holocausts.
The deliberate killing of a large group of people, especially those of a particular nation or ethnic group.
Destruction or slaughter on a mass scale, especially caused by fire or nuclear war.
