Why were victims of the holocaust targeted?
Because they were Jewish. Jews were one of many sections of society that Hitler did not see as part of his Germany. More than that, because of their numbers they were targeted for extermination, hence the Holocaust.
Germany, Austria, Belgium, Luxembourg, Bulgaria, Czechoslovakia, France, Greece, Hungary, Ukraine, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, USSR (Russia), Romania and Yugoslavia all had holocaust victims. Also, not all holocaust victims were just Jewish. Africans, Gyspies, Homosexuals, mentally disabled and people deemed "insane" were also targeted along with many others.
The greatest number (six million) of victims of the Holocaust were the Jews of Europe, but there were also Gypsies, communists, homosexuals, Jehovah's Witnesses, the mentally ill, and anyone else whom the Nazis didn't like. Your grammar is awful. Anyway, I think you meant to ask, "What type of people were victims in the Holocaust?" Jewish people were the main target of Hitler's extermination, or "genocide."

I did not think that someone would have to ask that. Anyway, the main victims had been Jews in Europe. About 5.6 to 6.3 million people had been murdered.

The disabled were also targeted for extermination, but this was before the Holocaust and was the inspiriation for many of the extermination camps of the Holocaust. Other groups who were persecuted by the Nazis like Jehovah's Witnesses, homosexuals, tarde unionists, clergy and many more, were not targeted for extermination, but were held in concentration camps.
The Nazi policy against the homosexuals was part of normal politics. Even now some countries homosexuality is still illegal, the US is still unsure whether it will continue to discriminate against homosexuals or not (refering specifically to the military here). The system in Nazi Germany was that criminals were sent to concentration camps, but homosexuals were not treated anything close to as badly as the victims of the Holocaust. The Nazis could have sent homosexuals…
Why were the jews gypies jehovas witnesses incureables homosexuals political dissidents soviet prisoners of war and communist liberals targeted during the holocaust?
Quite simply; they were not targeted in the Holocaust. These groups were targets of the Nazis and suffered great oppression. But the groups which were targeted in the Holocaust suffered much harsher conditions and oppression than most of those groups mentioned. 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…
