Jews are seen as these tortured people in recient history because of the hollicost. But they were far from the only people there. But they are the only ones we hear about... So I want to know how many of you actually knew that other religous groups were treated just as badly? Why don't we hear about them more?

Well, you and I both know, dah-ling, that Jehovah's Witnesses were persecuted. But I also know that gays were too. I am sure that those that spoke loudly enough against the Nazi Regime we sent to the camps also.
I have thought alot about this same question, I think that Jews were the largest and seemed to be a primary group to be persecuted that everyone else seems to fall by the wayside.

It is because Hitler singled them out the most. There were a lot of different people there but Hitler set out to exterminate the Jewish people because he blamed them for all Germany's woes. If you read anything about Hitler, it is clear his hatred of the Jews. The others were swept along in it. There are many who tried to hide the Jews. When he went into a town he closed down the broadcasting centers, the churches, and the religious schools. It is somewhat like slavery--there were black slave owners---many African tribes helped capture those sent into slavery--but you don't hear much about that:-)

Pink Triangle The Nazi concentration camps developed a system of badges to be worn by inmates depending on why they were imprisoned. Those convicted of sexual deviance, primarily homosexuality, were required to wear a pink triangle. Jews were required to wear the yellow Star of David. Purple designated Jehovah's Witnesses, red for political criminals, black for asocials, including the Roma, and green for criminals.
