What percent of Jews were killed in Europe?

About 78% of the Jews in the occupied or war impacted parts of Europe were killed in the Holocaust (also called The Shoa). In some countries, such as Poland and Lithuania, 90% of the Jews died or were killed.


What was the population after Holocaust?

The Nazis whipped out 2/3 of the Jewish population which is a about 7 million Jews. But not only Jews died; smaller races such as Gypies were also exterminated. Altogether, about 11 million people died in the holocaust.

The Nazis rounded up Jews and sent them to special camps where they were killed. The European Jewish population in 1950 was 3.5 million people in contrast to the 1933 European Jewish population of 9.5 million people (a difference of 6 million people whence the 6 million number comes). 2 million of the 3.5 million remaining Jews were in the Soviet Union.


Why did the germans and nazis get involved in the holocaust?

Because they were given no choice In 1939 the German government advised the 900,000 Jews to leave Germany. Hitlers rise to power is because one of his election platforms was to rid the country of the Jewish bailiffs sent to Germany with writ of seizures from the world court to repay the costs of WW1, which the court determined was the responsibility of the German people. The bailiffs were in control of the German financial system, and the German people were virtual slaves. The bailiffs lived as lords. The German people voted to empower Hitler to remove the Jews from Germany because they felt they were being enslaved by the Jewish bailiffs, and were being treated as inferior servants, slaves, and lowpaid hirelings, without any hope for the future
