Fascism's commitment to nationalism led many Germans to believe that Jews had no place in German society.
The fascist governments of the time did not actively contribute to the Holocaust, though Italy did surrender many of its Jews, it was not proactive in the way that Germany and the Nazis were. You could say that the philosophy of united society and the elimination of those not seen as conforming to that society could contribute. But it would be a mistake to try to align Nazism with fascism.

Did the Fascist party kill Jews and communists like the Nazis did?

How did facist philosophies contribute to the Holocaust?

The whole philosophy of the fascist regime was they were making a "pure race" and made up the Aryan race theory. First, there is no Aryan race and never has been. It was an Indo-European language, but the Aryan race foundation gave them the excuse to kill 6 million of the 9.3 million Jews in Europe. That is two out three people murdered. Had the fascist won in the 1940's the next thing they would have gone after was the Christian's. Hitler all ready had people rewriting the Bible and was eliminating much of the Old Testament and changing the New Testament to include the Aryan race theory.
