Study of the Holocaust underlines that genocide is a process which can be challenged or perhaps stopped rather than a spontaneous or inevitable event. The Holocaust demonstrated how a nation can utilize its bureaucratic structures, processes, and technical expertise while enlisting multiple segments of society to implement policies over time ranging from exclusion and discrimination to genocide.
