Your point?

Since the cites included are those of historians, not of "Jews", your
claim has nothing to do with the site (much less reality).  

Do you think Jews went around conducting international censuses to
establish exact numbers every year?  Even nations that held censuses
did not have good numbers for how many died, as the site shows.

Millions of PEOPLE died.  We have no idea how many of them were
Christians.  However, even your 48 million (which included the
soldiers), was well under 10% of the "Christian" population of the
involved countries, whereas 6 million Jews was more than a third of
the prewar Jewish population.

>So where's your holocaust, bub?

When you have the vaguest idea of why it is called the "Holocaust",
then there is some reason to argue the matter.

>How does it feel to taste your heel?

I don't know.  You seem the one who has the experience.
