No. The Holocaust was the attempted wholesale extermination, by Nazi Germany, of all Jews, Slavs and other people the Nazis considered "subhuman". the United States, and its allies, stopped the holocaust by winning the war.

Asians who were targeted were mostly POW or the rare immigrants. Asians generally weren't a problem during the Holocaust, it targeted Jews and Gypsies, but WW2 is separate from the Holocaust and people don't realize it. the US got involved in WW2 because of the Holocaust, which was Hitler's burning of Jews to get rid of the 'unclean' people. Then Japan attacked Pearl Harbor which got us involved in the war. The Holocaust is only a factor that was a part of WW2, but wasn't the only reason why we were at war with Germany and Japan.
