Quantifying the Holocaust: Hyperintense kill rates during the Nazi genocide
Sci Adv, Jan 2, 2019; DOI: 10.1126/sciadv.aau7292

The calculations of deaths in the Operation Reinhard period, as presented here, did not include data from many other camps operating at the time, such as Majdanek, Chelmno, and Stutthoff, and indeed without consideration of any of the other >40,000 Jewish ghettos and concentration camps where death was a daily event across Europe (17). There should be well over half a million Jews who lost their lives when hiding, which were also not considered. Moreover, murders of Gypsies (Roma) or other minority groups have not been included [e.g., (12)]. The 3 million non-Jewish Poles who were murdered over the war were also not included in the calculation.
