There was no budget for the Holocaust and the victims had to pay for their own sufferings and their death. In 1939-40 the SS became in part a vast business entreprise. The Holocaust was financed by slave labour hired out (under SS discipline) to private entreprise. About 2,000 (!) German corporations used SS slave labour ... In addition, the victims' assets and personal possessions were seized by the SS and stolen. In all, the SS made money from the Holocaust. According to the Holocaust historian Raul Hilberg, the Nazis made more from Jewish slave labour than from seized assets.

To the Nazis nothing because of the possessions robbed from the victims - To the victims everything [even their lives] - property, money, art, in fact every possession.
