Why did the Nazis want to kill the Jews specifically?

Many people and groups were victims of the murderous politics of the Nazi regime. This was a result of a racial ideology as well as political, economic and social factors. Although many people suffered and certain groups were murdered en masse, they were not targeted as Jews were for complete annihilation.
