Holocaust is defined either as the destruction of approximately six million European Jews, or more broadly as Nazi genocide of various peoples and groups, such as Jews, Slavs, gypsies, people with disabilities, gays, etc. If you consider only the Holocaust of Jews, the countries with most Jews killed during World War 2 were Poland, USSR, Hungary, Romania, Germany and Austria, the Baltic countries, and many others. ____________ I suspect that the question means: What countries…
The Germans started the holocaust because they believed that the Jews were the reason why they lost World War One.Adolf Hitler believed that the Jews should be punished for that reason so they had a meeting only Germans and most of them agreed that the Jews should be punished.So that is when Adolf Hitler started the murdering of exactly 5,860,000 million Jews
Most of the world didn't know that the Holocaust was going on. It was a very well kept secret. But ... News of the Holocaust did reach the outside world, which didn't want to know about it. America was one of the many countries who, in the beginning, didn't do much for the Jews in the Holocaust. They didn't even let the Jews come in because they didn't want to be a part of it.
There are no separate numbers for Austria; as Austria & Germany were one country during the time period for the Holocaust. The pre-war population of Jews in Germany and Austria is estimated to have been about 240,000 of which about 210,000 were killed. Most of the remainder survived by escaping to other countries. So that mean lots. Lots of Jews were killed. In the Holocaust.
After the Holocaust between 300 and 600 Jews were murdered by antisemites in Poland, including the Kilece Pogrom of July 1946 . (Most estimates are at the lower end of this range). There were anti-Jewish outrages in some other European countries but on a smaller scale. The overall total seems to be in the hundreds. (Note that Jews who died in the immediate aftermath of the Holocaust as a result of malnurtition, disease and ill…
Today, only about 1,500,000 Jews live throughout Europe. Prior to the Holocaust, the Jewish population was well into the double digits (perhaps about 15,000,000). 6,000,000 Jews perished due to the Holocaust, which significantly dropped the Jewish population in Europe. Most of those who survived migrated to other countries (mainly the US or the UK), and later to Israel (once it existed in 1948). Prior to the Holocaust, the majority of Jews lived in Eastern Europe…
During the Holocaust only 51/82000 Danish Jews were killed. Most Jews with the help of Neutral Sweden and the Danish Government were able to emmigrate to Sweden since it was neutral during the Holocaust. That was a total of 99.6 per cent of Jews from Denmark were saved from the Nazi Genocide known as the Holocaust.
Plenty of people helped the Jews the best they can. These neutral countries helped hide Jews within their borders. The Vatican City Sweden Spain Portugal Several Individuals, helped hide Jews the most famous being Oskar Schindler. Not to mention the Allies who came and liberated the majority of Jews in concentration camps.
