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.
