geoduck42: The store-owner is quoted as claiming that he didn't know who Hitler was, and got the idea from a family nickname. This is India and not Europe or the US, but still.. if he's telling the truth.. wow.

HoratioGates: 6 million is just the number of Jews killed in the concentration camps. Total concentration camp deaths were between 11 and 17 million people. The war killed over 60 million people, over 2.5% of the world population. The Soviets lost 23 million people (most of them while fighting against the Nazi's although a small number would have been killed while allied with Germany). Even if you disregard all Germans killed fighting for the Nazis as Nazis who deserved to to die (which counts children soldiers in the mix) the Axis killed 30 million people IN EUROPE ALONE!
