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.

During WWII a small number of US servicemen had "Dog Tags" marked with "H" for Hebrew were and some of these were executed on the spot. There were also a few (about 300 to 5…00) that were removed from POW camps, placed into labor camps, maltreated and some were placed into the exterminaction camps. The figures are unclear, but the consensus on both the German and American side is that "a few hundred Jewish servicemen were exterminated". Several thousand US citizens were trapped in Germany when the war began. Some were Jewish, and many were unable to escape. _______ On the whole, the Nazis were cautious in their treatment of U.S. and British and Commonwealth servicemen taken prisoner. However, many Jewish American prisoners of war went sent to Stalag IX-B, where they were treated extremely badly. Some were sent to Berga (Thuringia), which was a sub-camp of Buchenwald.

How many Russians died in the Holocaust The question has been, I believe, noticeably untidily stated. The term �Holocaust� refers, for the most part, to ph…ysical extermination of Europa�s Jews carried out by German Nazis and their collaborators during World War II years. Who, then, have been designated as �Russians� in this question? Soviet Jews murdered in territories occupied by German army in 1941 � 1944? Many of them were not �Russian Jews� at all, they were mainly Polish ones: in 1939, during Wehrmacht campaign against Polish state, Soviet army took control of Eastern part of Polish lands where a sizeable segment of residents was Jewish by blood and religion. The same can be said about Jewish citizenry of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, Baltic republics, also forcibly picked up by Soviets: they were metamorphosed into a Soviet populace without being Russian. All in all, annexations of 1939 � 1940 brought to the Soviet Union nearly two million Jews. Compare it to another figure: in all Soviet areas overrun by the Germans there were living 2.160.000 Jews (see Levin, Nora. �The Jews in the Soviet Union since 1917�, I.B. Tauris & Co Ltd, London � New York 1988, p. 401). Their fate is known only in round numbers: from 2,16 million, Nora Levin states, �approximately 1.400.000� perished (p. 420). The fortune of Soviet prisoners of war (not all of them were Russians either, by reason of the Soviet Army�s multinationality) was not much better. One Russian source (�Grif secretnosty snyat. Poteri Voorujennykh Sil SSSR v Voinakh��, Voennoye Izdatelstvo, Moskva 1993, - �It Is Classified No More. Losses of Soviet Military Forces in Wars��, State Department of Defence Edition, Moscow 1993, p.p. 338 � 339) specifies number of Soviet POWs as 4.059.000. After war ended, only 1.368.849 of them returned to Mother Russia. So nearly 2,7 million vanished. How many of them survived and started a new life in the West, the source mentioned above does not indicate, but one may well presume that lucky ones constituted a rather negligible minority among the whole gloomy lot.
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.
The actual number of deaths is not known. There were an estimated 6 million European Jews. There were most likely about the same number of non-Jewish deaths, these fell …into many groups Russian POW's, Polish, disable, freemasons, gays, and even Jehovah's Witnesses.
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. ____
Between 1.8 million and 2 million ethnic Poles were killed during the Holocaust.
About half the victims were female.
The Holocaust was the intentional genocide of the "undesirable" populations in Europe resulting in the mass murder of 11,000,000 people of which 6,000,000 were Jews.
Probably a good handful. Although our understanding of the Holocaust Story is one that concentrates on the large number of Jews murdered, Hitler targeted all gro…ups that deviated from the strict Aryan Christian Nationalist profile. Anyone alien to traditional German Culture (and even those who were who spoke out against racism and nationalism) had to go. Jews, Slavs, Freemasons, Homosexuals, some variants of Christianity, Communists, Anarchists, Roma (Gypsies) and plenty of other 'deviants' all had to go. But because of the relatively small number of Muslims in Europe at the time, Muslims death tolls were similarly tiny in comparison to those of other groups. ____ Bosniak Muslims were actively recruited into the SS and formed a division of the SS. There was no question of the Nazis persecuting the Muslims. In fact, the Nazis were rather fond of some Muslims.
Over 3000 Protestants died in the Holocaust. 5 to 6 million Jews were killed in the Holocaust. However, this is an estimate as it is possible that more may have died.
24died, 23 were unknown ,and the 1 that was known was shaber
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).
Practically none, as they were not targets of the Holocaust.
An estimated 11 million people were killed in the Holocaust, roughly 6 million of them being Jews. Other groups the Nazis targeted for extermination were people of Romani, Pol…ish, Russian, or Slavic origin, Jehovah's Witnesses, the mentally handicapped, the physically disabled, POWs (especially Soviet), homosexuals, political leftists, and freemasons. Note: People of colour were killed as well, but their killings were far less systematic than those of the groups listed above, so they are not classified as casualties of the Holocaust.
