Shouldn't USSR be the listed answer rather than Russia?

Either choose present-day countries or the countries during WWII, it can be confusing this way. Otherwise a good quiz.

Agreed, either split up into modern countries or countries during the occupation. You list Russia and Germany and Austria seperately, but not Ukraine or Belarus.

Surely there were at least a few in Bulgaria?

@johnlk: German-allied Bulgaria did not deport Bulgarian Jews. Bulgaria did, however, deport non-Bulgarian Jews from the territories it had annexed from Yugoslavia and Greece. In the spring of 1943, the Bulgarian government made extensive plans to comply with the Nazi demand to deport Bulgaria's Jews. Significant and public protest from key political and clerical leaders moved King Boris to cancel these deportation plans. http://www.ushmm.org/wlc/en/article.php?ModuleId=10005355

I think the identification of the source would help with the current vs. past countries issue. Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania were independent until 1939, when they were annexed by the USSR and then were part of Nazi Germany after the Nazi invasion of the Soviet Union. During the Holocaust they were administered as part of the Third Reich, as Reichskommissariat Ostland. So, of course, was Austria since the 1938 Anschluss. But the same is true for other Nazi occupied countries, like Luxembourg, Belgium, the Netherlands and non-Vichy France. Ukraine and Belarus are muc more complicated to figure out, as they were neither independent, nor had the same borders as today. Any assignment of Jewish victims to "Belarus" as opposed to "Russia" or "Poland" would likely be arbitrary as a result.

I'm a new user, so I don't know how to do anything. How do I add the source for this information and fix a few errors?

So are Ukraine and Belarus included in Russia, or not? If so, it should say "Soviet Union"

There were Jews killed in North Africa, as well, in the territories controlled by the Vichy in Tunisia, Algeria, and Morocco: http://www.ushmm.org/wlc/en/article.php?ModuleId=10007311

@UnionJack: Any amount of people killed is bad. Just because it's only 7 doesn't mean it's not significant.
