    Holocaust was orders of magnitude worse. Slavery is meant to keep people alive but have them working. Holocaust is meant to completely kill out countries and ethnic groups. Of course they both have discrimination and prejudice in common but Holocaust goes way beyond that. In Holocaust, we're talking about families of 45 people getting sent to one gas chamber and killed there, we're talking about people being tortured pretty badly while being forced to do slave labor.

    WW2 death count is NOT 80 million people . Furthermore, there are various figures and sources. There is no general consensus.

    Slavery and holocaust cannot be compared. Many slaves did wish that they would be dead.

    That's like asking death by heat or cold. Slavery is far more than America.

    The American Civil War and World War Two death tolls are NOT the death tolls of slaves and Holocaust victims.  Neither war was ostensibly fought on behalf of them, and the death tolls were of combatants. 

    And what do you want the numbers to "prove"?  That slavery was a better system of killing because a slave was merely worked beyond exhaustion?  That the Holocaust victims suffered only for a few hours in the gas chamber or a few weeks crowded in freight cars in the sun?

    The Holocaust victims also were worked beyond exhaustion.  They had little to eat and little to keep out the cold.  They were beaten and whipped.  So were American slaves.  Both groups were injured by sharp tools, boiling liquids and unsafe machines. No health care or safety measures for the victims and little if any care from the masters.  Both groups were "inferiors" without human rights, according to the peoples who "owned" their bodies.  Both groups were "experimented" upon, to test their stamina and for "selective breeding".

    Both slaves and Holocaust victims - survivors and the dead - were treated abominably and shame to those who so treated them.

    The six million figure used in the Jewish death toll is an estimate for total lives lost. These Jewish lives were taken by a number of groups, not just Nazis. The six million figure includes Jewish lives lost in other countries as well, not just Germany, and by the various modes of killing, not just camp deaths. Ukrainian deaths were due to Russian and Nazi perpetrators alike, some killed on "acquired" German soil, others killed on Russian soil, some killed outright, others  worked or starved to death.

    The total Murdered By the Nazis in WW2 was 15 Million including the 6 million Jews

    The Nazi Euthanasia Centre at Bernburg operated from 21 November 1940 to 30 July 1943 in a separate wing of the State Sanatorium and Mental Hospital Bernburg on the River Saale  It was one of several euthanasia centres run by the Nazis under their official "Euthanasia Programme", later referred to after the war as Action T4. A total of 9,384 sick and handicapped people from 33 welfare institutions and nursing homes as well as around 5,000 prisoners from six concentration camps were killed here in a gas chamber using carbon monoxide gas.

    Each extermination camp operated differently, yet each had designs for quick and efficient industrialized killing. While Höss was away on an official journey in late August 1941 his deputy, Karl Fritzsch, tested out an idea. At Auschwitz clothes infested with lice were treated with crystallised prussic acid.

     The crystals were made to order by the IG Farben Dupont chemicals company for which the brand name was Zyklon-B. Once released from their container, Zyklon-B crystals in the air released a lethal cyanide gas. Fritzch tried out the effect of Zyklon B on Soviet POWs, who were locked up in cells in the basement of the bunker for this experiment. Höss on his return was briefed and impressed with the results and this became the camp strategy for extermination as it was also to be at Majdanek.

    Besides gassing, the camp guards continued killing prisoners via mass shooting, starvation, torture

    The first period of operation in Belzec and Sobibor lasted about three months, in Treblinka five weeks. After this initial phase, those holding key positions in Operation Reinhard decided to introduce "improvements" into the camps so as to increase their extermination capacity. This decision was brought on by Himmler's order of July 19, 1942 that all the Jews in the General Government, with a few exceptions, were to be eradicated by the end of that year.

    The main problem was finding a way to speed up the extermination procedure, i.e., increasing the absorption capacity of the gas chambers.

    Belzec was the first camp in which large gas chambers were built. The old wooden structure containing the three gas chambers was demolished, and on the same spot a larger, strong building was erected, which was 24 m. Iong and 10 m. wide. It contained six gas chambers. Statements differ as to their size; they fluctuate between 4 x 4 m. and 4 x 8 m. The new gas chambers were completed in mid July. (StA Munich 1, AZ: 22 Js 68/61, pp. 2602, 2613.)

    No Death camps No Cholera or Typhus

    There is no doubt about it, it's very definatly the Holocaust. Slaves were not gassed and their bodies thrown into ovens. Nor were they persicuted like the Jews were during the Holocaust.

    Holocaust. If you get caught, you’re getting gassed. 

    If you’re a slave, you might get good treatment if you have a nice owner. If you don’t then you get whipped but you’ll be alive.

    Slavery has been affecting people since virtually the start of human society, and even today many millions of people around the world are directly affected by it.  So, I guess, we could say that slavery is worse as the Holocaust at least ended, while slavery may continue to haunt our world for a long, long while to come.
