That didn't come immediately to mind but I thought of it after my post.
You're absolutely right. The indigenous peoples of the Americas were subjected to a holocaust perpetrated by Europeans from the southern tip of Chile to the arctic circle.
As far as our internment camps during WWII go.... Although the treatment of those prisoners and the confiscation of their property was a travesty they were not slaughtered. Not a holocaust IMO.
It's important to note that many immigrant and native males of fighting age volunteered to serve in our military prove their love of and loyalty to their adopted/native country. They served with honor and distinction and many of them never saw the US again.
The Navajo code talkers very likely saved us from defeat.
