There are various definitions of Holocaust survivor. On the most stringent definition, about 150,000 survived. This means Jews who were in real danger and/or in camps and/or in hiding and still alive on 8 May 1945.

How many people escaped the Holocaust?

Everyone still left alive at the end of WWII. ____ But the Holocaust and World War 2 are not the same thing! ____ It's too vague a question to be more specific than that. Are they asking how many Jews were left alive after the Germans were defeated? In the entire world? Because if we hadn't won WWII, they might have ruled everywhere. Also, they didn't just kill Jews. They killed all kinds of people, so you'd have to know how many of each of those groups were still alive in the world when the Germans were defeated. But maybe that's not what's being asked at all. It could be how many people from these groups were left alive in the countries that Germany had conquered before they were defeated. And if German rule continued for several generations, you'd have to count all the people who would have been born during that time and therefore also subject to dying in the holocaust. You can come up with a rough number of the people who did NOT survive the holocaust, but it's impossible to say who else would have died if the holocaust hadn't ended when it did- and therefore impossible to say how many people survived.

When did the Holocaust in Germany stop?

Just prior to the end of the war, many officers in work/death camps abandoned the populations, and locked them in. Many of the people inside were suffering from exposure, naked, starved, and unable to even process food. Their bodies were literally reduced to skeletons, many unable to walk. The look in their eyes can be described as beyond suffering. Many survivors still have the numbers on their arms, tattooed. For them, the holocaust, or Shoach, never ended, because the people who died still aren't alive, and many people of the world still want to see Jews exterminated.
