true jews were targeted for being foreign but its deeper than that, it has a lot to do with their non acceptance of europe's main religion at the time, christianity. (Now its post modern christian era). Multiculturalism was not 'in' back then. The gypsies were targeted too as foreginers, but no official policy existed to exterminate them, as existed for the jews. Do jews from europe to israel think of themselves as non european, back then maybe, even in the camps jews had a internal system, depending on what country you came from. Hungary was bottom of the heap b/c back then in europe it was lowly in economic technological terms. Today jews want german citizenship, and many are proud to say they are israeli but will tell you I am from this or that european nation. Why? B/c despite our failing toward each other, we are a brotherhood of mankind. jews don't want to be segregated or labeled continuously.2 credit of japan at least they disliked the idea of rounding up elders to kill.
