Quite simply; they were not targeted in the Holocaust. These groups were targets of the Nazis and suffered great oppression.

Of the groups mentioned: Jehovah's witnesses, 'incureables', homosexuals, political dissidents, communists and liberals [communist liberal is an oxymoron] had most of those imprisoned survive and were given many times the amount of food that was given to those targeted in the Holocaust. Also they were all released from the concentration camps if they renounced their beliefs, where as those who were targeted in the Holocaust were there because of who they were, not what they did or what they believed in.
