In short, the Holocaust took place mainly in Europe. Citizens - mainly Jews - of western European countries were deported to extermination camps, especially Auschwitz, where they were murdered with poison gas. Citizens of Poland, Russia, Hungary and several other central and eastern European countries were murdered by mobile shooting squads (see: http://www.holocaust-history.org/intro-einsatz/), and by poison gas in extermination camps such as Auschwitz, Belzec, Treblinka and Sobibor.
