The Holocaust was the genocide of approximately six million European Jews during World War II in a programme of systematic state-sponsored murder by Nazi Germany throughout Nazi-occupied territory. Of the nine million Jews who had resided in Europe before the Holocaust, approximately two-thirds perished. In particular, over one million Jewish children were killed in the Holocaust, as were approximately two million Jewish women and three million Jewish men.
By contrast, the death toll in New Zealand during the 1840-1872 sovereignty wars included 2154 anti-government Maori and 745 colonial government fighters, according to New Zealand History Online, which drew on historian James Cowan. Details are as follows:
More Maori died during the 1818-1842 guns-and-utu wars. For the total death toll of these battles, historian Matthew Wright in his new book “Guns and Utu" suggests that of perhaps 100,000 Maori alive during the early 19th century, about 20,000 were killed and a further 20,000 enslaved. These equated to annual percentage losses higher than New Zealand experienced during the First World War. Demographer John Robinson, who wrote “The Corruption of New Zealand Democracy”, estimated a death toll in those wars of up to 50,000.
