When referring to the Nazi genocide of the Jews it is called the Holocaust with the definite article and a capital H. If the word is used to refer to something else, then use a small (lower-case) h.

When referring to the systemic murders of Jews by Nazis in WWII, which I suspect you are, then YES, it’s written as the Holocaust. Note that only "Holocaust" is capitalized, not "the."
