Not many people helped Jewish people. I understand that people were afraid but in order for Hitler to do what he did, there were many who agreed with what was going on (or did not disagree, same thing). I know it is sad to think that so many human beings participated in this atrocity, but, this is the only way something like this could have taken place. I can understand very small countries like the Netherlands fear, the people there were probably just trying to survive the war themselves. Hitler could not have come to power and maintained power without many political, economic, and public supporters. Who funded him? Please note that I am not Jewish or European.
