Nazis implemented an obligatory Jewish badge (to identify Jews) between 1939 and 1945. Like this Star of David

Why did these massacres take place?

Nazi Germany was one of the most systematic perpetrators of war crimes in modern history. The factors which contributed to war crimes included racial theories, the desire for "living space" which was used as a justification for the annihilation of mostly Jewish people and indoctrination that encouraged the terrorization of conquered peoples and prisoners of war. The massacres and atrocities were one of these factors.
