You do realise that not all of the 6 million victims were jewish? there were gentiles that refused to be a part of the 3rd reich movement put in camps and killed as well.. along with all the gypsies, several communists and various other (non-religious) people. Please get your facts straight with things of such a sensitive nature.

Well, actually, the prevailing thought on all of this is that Jewish victims of the holocaust numbered close to or slightly over 6 million. Non-jewish victims number another 3-5 million, bringing the estimated total to around 11 million victims total. (Other numberings boost the count to over 20 million dead). So while the museum may be intended to honor the entirety of the holocaust-dead, it really isn't wrong to say "in memory of the six million Jewish victims..." because there were in fact six million Jews killed in the holocaust, along with millions of other victims.
