This is slightly off the hip, and I will certainly yield (and encourage) a more researched answer: First I suspect you mean were there any African Jews killed by the Nazi's as part of their "final solution", now known as the Jewish Holocaust....and even more directly, were there Black Jews / People of Color Jews killed? Certainly Jews may come in any color or be found most any place. (You may find the much more modern story of the Falasha very interesting). It is reasonable that since there were limited Black Africans in most of Europe then, and fewer still that were Jewish, and that the Nazi's were out to exterminate Blacks as well as Jews, being both, (especially one of which you could not conceal), lowered your odds of surviving exponentionally. So highly likely the few there probably were, were some of the first exterminated. You also may want to consider that many Jews, even European ones then, are of a more Mid Eastern heritage and as such could frequently be of a darker skin than we Americans generally consider as a "jewish" look (eastern european). This non aryan look was also not a good thing in the world of the Nazi's. Not much was.

Add to Answer: During the North African campaign, 17 Concentration camps were establihed in places like Morocco, Libya , Algeria and Tunisia. This enterprise was a labor camp and no extermination camps were in place in North Africa. Jews living in those areas were rounded up, tortured and executed. The small numbers, did not mean that "African Jews" were not a part of the Holocaust.
