POW from world war II...then it turned into a concentration camp, they killed lots of jews and russian prisoners there.

Most were killed. Others were shipped to concentration camps...then killed.

Jews, Gypsies, Homosexuals, political prisoners.

It wasn't only the Jews. It was anyone who didn't fit into Hitler's idea of a ideal person. Others killed were the Gypsys, handicapped, and political prisoners. About 5 million non-Jews were killed in the Holocaust.

The number of Jews killed in the holocaust was between 11 million to 17 million people.

Hitler and the Nazis did by killing millions of Jews.

he killed 1/4 of the Jews in the world he killed 1/4 of the Jews in the world

JewsSoviet prisoners of war (seldom mentioned)Roma (gypsies)

Initially, the largest group of prisoners was Soviet POWs. Later by far the largest group was Jews, and about 75% of the victims killed there were Jews.

then there would b no Jews in the world mayb only half Jews

A frequently quoted figure is 11 million dead overall, of whom 6 million were Jews.

The German Wikipedia article on Buchenwald gives the total number of prisoners killed at Buchenwald as 56,000 - of whom 11,000 were Jews. (Note that Buchenwald not an extermination camp and was not specifically for Jews).

Aproxmetly 6,000,000 (6 milion) Jews were killed in terrable ways.

Concentration camps, originally designed to hold political prisoners, eventually were used to hold Jews, Soviet prisoners, Gypsies, Poles, left of center political prisoners, homosexuals, people with disabilities, Jehovah's Witnesses, common criminals, etc. Many people in all of these groups were either killed or worked to death, but probably the Jews and the Soviets suffered the greatest number of casualties.

Around 6.9 Million Jews were killed during World War 2 99.9% was because of the Holocaust.

Jews (about six million killed)Soviet prisoners of war (about 3.3 million killed)GypsiesNon-Jewish Polish civilians

Soviet prisoners of war were treated abominably by the Nazis. Some were sent to Auschwitz and killed there.

* Yes. The Nazis treated the Jews as a race, not a religion, so many of the victims of the Holocaust, especially from Western and Central Europe, were not practicising Jews. * The Nazis also slaughtered Soviet 'political commissars' whom they took prisoners. These were Marxist-Leninists (Communists). The Nazis also killed other Soviet prisoners of war.

Yes, he killed baby Jews during the World War 2.

About 90,000 of the 350,000 Jews residing in France were killed in WWII. That's roughly 26%.

No , the Jews were not the only ones killed in the Holacoust. Gypsies, Gays , P.O.W , and Jews were killed in the Holocaust. But most of the killed wre the Jews. Gays and Gypsies were not as hated by the Nazis as the Jews were . But again . no the Jews were not the only ones killed :)

In World War 1 the Jews were not specifically targeted. Perhaps you are thinking of World War 2 and the Holocaust?

about 5.1 million gypsies, non Jews and prisoners of war, especially Russians. --- If one takes takes 11 million as the figure for the total number killed in the wider holocaust - that is including the groups listed above, and about 6 million Jews, then 6/11 would give a percentage of 54.5% Jews.

the natzi's killed the Jews in the hollicost.
