Number of Holocaust Survivors
How many Holocaust survivors were alive after 1945?
Approximately 6,500,000 people
According to a mathematical method of Barrington James, the estimated number of Holocaust survivors immediately after the war in 1945 is 6,540,000 people. This number does not just include the Jews, but also those citizens of the countries that the Nazis occupied. However, in another report from the Israeli Prime Minister’s office dated August 1997, the estimated number of Holocaust survivors still alive worldwide ranged between 834,000 to 960,000 people.
