How many Poles died in the Holocaust?
The exact number will never be known. Most estimates put the total number of Poles who died in WW2 at about 5.5 - 5.9 million and of these about 2.9 million were Jews.
Note that the total number of Poles who perished in WW2 is difficult to establish as the Soviet Union tried to minimize its own involvement.

Some scholars maintain that the definition of the word Holocaust should also include the Nazis' systematic murder of millions of people in other groups, including ethnic Poles…, the Roma, Soviet civilians, Soviet prisoners of war, people with disabilities, homosexuals, Jehovah's Witnesses, and other political and religious adherents. By this definition, the total number of Holocaust victims would be between 11 million and 17 million people. Answer: The above does not address the question. The answer to the question is: Six million Jewish people died in the Holocaust.
About 165,000 German Jews perished. However, this figure does not include German Jews who emigrated to countries like France, Belgium and the Netherlands, which were subsequen…tly invaded by the Nazis. Figures for Holocaust dead are based on the countries from which the victims were deported. This avoids double counting.
The exact figure is unknown. I have seen figures of 30,000. I do know more than 5 million "undesirable" people were killed by the Nazis. The disabled were part of that figure.… So the 30,000 figure is probably too low.
500,000 to 600,000 roma (or gypsies) died during the holocaust
About 1.5 million (Jewish) children were killed in the holocaust. If you include Romany and Sinta children (Gypsies), and children of any race or background who had disabiliti…es, the number grows to about 2.5 million.
None, the Nazis tried to claim that Jews were part of their own individual race by pseudo-eugenics, so that he could claim that Jews had genetic defects.
After the Holocaust between 300 and 600 Jews were murdered by antisemites in Poland, including the Kilece Pogrom of July 1946 . (Most estimates are at the lower end of this ra…nge). There were anti-Jewish outrages in some other European countries but on a smaller scale. The overall total seems to be in the hundreds. (Note that Jews who died in the immediate aftermath of the Holocaust as a result of malnurtition, disease and ill treatment in the Holocaust itself are counted as Holocaust victims).
Precisely how many Afro-Germans died in Nazi concentration camps is not known, but estimates put the figure at between 25,000 and 50,000. The relatively low numbers of blacks …in Germany, their wide dispersal across the country, and the fact that the Nazis concentrated on the Jews were some factors that made it possible for many Afro-Germans to survive the war -About.com The fate of black people from 1933 to 1945 in Nazi Germany and in German-occupied territories ranged from isolation to persecution, sterilization, medical experimentation, incarceration, brutality, and murder. However, there was no systematic program for their elimination as there was for Jews and other groups.After World War I, the Allies stripped Germany of its African colonies. The German military stationed in Africa (Schutztruppen), as well as missionaries, colonial bureaucrats, and settlers, returned to Germany and took with them their racist attitudes. Separation of whites and blacks was mandated by the Reichstag (German parliament), which enacted a law against mixed marriages in the African colonies.The Nazis, at the time a small political movement, viewed them as a threat to the purity of the Germanic race. In Mein Kampf (My Struggle), Hitler charged that �the Jews had brought the Negroes into the Rhineland with the clear aim of ruining the hated white race by the necessarily-resulting bastardization.�African German mulatto children were marginalized in German society, isolated socially and economically, and not allowed to attend university. Racial discrimination prohibited them from seeking most jobs, including service in the military. Hilarius (Lari) Gilges, a dancer by profession, was murdered by the SS in 1933, probably because he was black. Gilges' German wife later received restitution from a postwar German government for his murder by the Nazis.Some African Americans, caught in German-occupied Europe during World War II, also became victims of the Nazi regime. Many, like female jazz artist Valaida Snow, were imprisoned in Axis internment camps for alien nationals. The artist Josef Nassy, living in Belgium, was arrested as an enemy alien and held for seven months in the Beverloo transit camp in German-occupied Belgium. He was later transferred to Germany, where he spent the rest of the war in the Laufen internment camp and its subcamp, Tittmoning, both in Upper Bavaria.European and American blacks were also interned in the Nazi concentration camp system. Lionel Romney, a sailor in the U.S. Merchant Marine, was imprisoned in the Mauthausen concentration camp. Jean Marcel Nicolas, a Haitian national, was incarcerated in the Buchenwald and Dora-Mittelbau concentration camps in Germany. Jean Voste, an African Belgian, was incarcerated in the Dachau concentration camp. Bayume Mohamed Hussein from Tanganyika (today Tanzania) died in the Sachsenhausen camp, near Berlin.Black prisoners of war faced illegal incarceration and mistreatment at the hands of the Nazis, who did not uphold the regulations imposed by the Geneva Convention (international agreement on the conduct of war and the treatment of wounded and captured soldiers). Lieutenant Darwin Nichols, an African American pilot, was incarcerated in a Gestapo prison in Butzbach. Black soldiers of the American, French, and British armies were worked to death on construction projects or died as a result of mistreatment in concentration or prisoner-of-war camps. Others were never even incarcerated, but were instead immediately killed by the SS or Gestapo.Some African American members of the U.S. Armed forces were liberators and witnesses to Nazi atrocities. The 761st Tank Battalion (an all-African American tank unit), attached to the 71st Infantry Division, U.S. Third Army, under the command of General George Patton, participated in the liberation of Gunskirchen, a subcamp of the Mauthausen concentration camp, in May 1945.
Answer About 75,000 Jews from Slovakia or 83 percent of the estimated Jewish population were annihilated.
11,000,000 people died in the holocaust of them 6,000,000 were people of Jewish decent. The other 5,000,000 were comprised of gypsies, homosexuals, Jehovah's witnesses and oth…er minority groups. It is difficult to tell exact numbers for homosexuals since most were sent to concentration and death camps based upon suspicions, but the third most targeted group of the holocaust were homosexuals behind Jewish People, and Gypsies.
Approximately 11 to 17 million people died due to the Holocaust. It is very difficult to know accurately as some records weren't kept or were destroyed. Of that amount, it is …generally agreed that about 6 million were Jews. It's impossible to know how many Christians died in the Holocaust, because faith usually wasn't a category listed on most records. The Catholic Church was persecuted, and many Catholic Poles were systematically slaughtered. Numbers are difficult to know, but it is thought perhaps 3 million Catholic Poles lost their lives to the Nazi regime. http://www.catholicleague.org/research/holocaust_documentation.htm An interesting book to read about a Christian family who tried to circumvent Nazi terror and help their Jewish neighbors is The Hiding Place by Corrie ten Boom. When Hitler's T4 euthanasia program was put into effect to exterminate the mentally ill, the outcry from the German Catholic forced him to cancel it. ____
24died, 23 were unknown ,and the 1 that was known was shaber
A lot more women died than men, and children. Anywhere from 2.9 to 3 million Jewish women died. ____ It was genocide. There is no evidence that more women died than men.
most of the Jews who died were Slavs, most of the Poles and Russians who died were Slavs. Probably about eight million.
It's impossible to give the exact number. The Wikipedia article on the Holocaust gives an estimate of 5,000 to 15,000, which is a very wide range. There are those who challe…nge even the 5,000 to 15,000, saying that they believe it is too high. Among these are Dr. Judith Reisman in her article "The Pink Swastika and Holocaust Revisionist History," available online. Scott Lively and Kevin Abrams: The Pink Swastika: Homosexuality in the Nazi Party c. 2004 (available to read at no charge online) present evidence for the role of homosexuals within the Nazi Party and content that any homosexuals killed were mostly "fems" and were disdained and killed by more masculine homosexuals. In another book also by Lively, The Poisoned Stream, Lively states that he has found it very difficult to find hard evidence for the killing of very many homosexuals at all in the holocaust. He contends that many within the Nazi regime were practicing homosexuals of the more masculine variety, and that many of the prison commandants were in fact masochistic homosexuals, some of whom openly boasted of their homosexual masochism against their prisoners. [This is pure guesswork, on a par with suggestions that the Nazis were boot fetishists]. ____ They say between 5,000 and 15,000 homosexuals died in the Holocaust. I personally would like to dispute this number, as the Nazis were such thorough in their discrimination I would have thought it was much, much higher. However, the treatment of the gay men and women after the war by the Allies was not brilliant either as some Holocaust Survivors were promptly thrown in prison by the Allies for being gay! Note Scott Lively is notoriously anti-gay and his book seems to be pure fantasy.
The Holocaust in the sense of routine mass killings started in 1941. In 1938 about 400 (?) Jews were killed during the Night of the Broken Glass (Kristallnacht). (The widely q…uoted figure of 91 is inaccurate and was that given by the Nazis themselves). During and immediately after the Night of the Broken Glass, about 30,000 Jews were sent to concentration camps, and by Christmas 1938, over 2,000 of them were dead. That makes a death toll at least 2,400 for 1938.
The Holocaust did not occur in Ethiopia while it was under Italian occupation (the infrastructure was lacking) and Black Jews are only found elsewhere in Sub-Saharan Africa an…d North America which were not occupied by the Axis Powers and therefore not subject to annihilation. Any Black Jews who may have died in World War II would have been incidental or negligible in the overall numbers of Jews murdered.
