    No one is ignoring the many millions of gentile people who suffered and died during WII. However, your response conveniently fails to note that the deaths of millions of unarmed, civilian Jews, representing about 60% of the entire Jewish population of Europe, was mass murder - genocide - was mostly systematic, targeted and intended as murder, as opposed to the deaths of gentiles, who were either members of national armies and died fighting a defensive war with weapons - a conventional, armed struggle against an armed invader; or were what today we call "collateral damage" of that conventional war (i.e. thy were not specifically targeted for murder). No ethnic group, except possibly the so-called Gypsies, lost anywhere near 60% of their members. Failure to acknowledge that the Nazis were waging two totally different wars (armed invasions and genocide) is a favorite tactic of Holocaust-deniers.
