World War II Casualties
At least 50 million people lost their lives in World War II, with civilians making up more than half that number. And while military figures are easier to estimate, the number of people who perished in bombings, by famine or other circumstances related to the conditions the conflict brought are thought to actually be far higher. Additionally, another 6 million Jews from across Europe - the greatest number of them being from Poland - were killed in the Holocaust.
