I'm not a child, but have to teach on the topic. In addition to other reasons presented, I wonder if one of the reasons Hitler could target the Jews is that they were a distinguishable group. The gypsies, perhaps the Jehovah's Witnesses, were distinguishable groups. Jews wold not be likely to deny their identity. In the final analysis though, his hatred was beyond reason - inexplicable - when all outward constraints are removed from a person, and that person is accountable to no one, we get a glimpse of what man can do.
