I don't mean to poke holes in your argument but there were a specific bunch of people getting put in the concentration camps.
I am completely against the points EVERS is making, however, billy brown, world war 2 non religious?
World War II was non-religious. The Jews were one of many groups who were killed in huge numbers by Germany in the name of racial purity.
An estimated 5 to 6 million Jews were killed - compare that with an estimated 4.5 to 8 million Russian civilians whom the Germans killed, not to mention millions of others killed due to race, sexuality, political orientation etc.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_War_II_casualties
5.7 million (78%) of the 7.3 million Jews in German dominated Europe died in the war. Estimates for Holocaust deaths range between 5.1 to 6.0 million Jews.
Other groups persecuted and killed by the Nazis included: 130,000 to 500,000 Gypsies; 150,000 to 200,000 handicapped persons ; 2.6 to 3 million Soviet prisoners of war; 1.8 to 1.9 million Poles ; 4.5 to 8.2 million Soviet civilians; about 10,000 Gay men; about 1,000 Jehovah's Witnesses; between 1,000 to 2,000 Roman Catholic clergy and an unknown number of Freemasons. "The fate of black people from 1933 to 1945 in Nazi Germany and in German-occupied territories ranged from isolation to persecution, sterilization, medical experimentation, incarceration, brutality, and murder." During the Nazi era Communists, Socialists, Social Democrats, and trade union leaders were victims of Nazi persecution.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holocaust_victims
