Homework Help: Holocaust research paper

Did more people survive the Holocaust than the amount who have died?

At the beginning of the Holocaust, 8 million Jews lived in Europe. At the end of the war, only 2 million were still alive. Please check the many sites that have been posted for you.

Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum again, Brooke. ARe you sure you read the sites we gave you carefully?

1. (This site told you more than 6 million Jews were killed during the Holocaust. The other deaths (Roma, Soviet POW's, disabled people, gay men, Jehovah's Witnesses, non-Jewish Poles and political prisoners were not included. Including those would mean between 9 and 11 million victims.

There were persecutions and pograms before the concentration and labor camps. The camps were between 1933 and the end of the war in 1945.

2. In 1981 a national registry to document the lives of survivors who came to the U.S. after World War II was established. It now includes over 185,000 records relating to survivors and families.

3. This is the Holocaust Time Line.

4. In August 1997 the estimated number of survivors was about 900,000. Therefore there is an estimated number of survivors for May 1945. That is between 2.7 and 3.6 million.
