Okay, I think my post was taken a bit too literally. In reference to the Holocaust, let's remember that although there were millions involved as prisoners in concentration camps or in the war as nazis (etc.), there were millions of others all across the world who were not involved in it. The statistics presented seem to exclude those who did not engage in glorious battles, did not live anywhere near or have any participation in any particularly significant part of history, etc. Does everyone have a certain amount of drama in life? Yes, but not everyone was a war hero or some intriguing, major figure in history. My friend also brought up a good point - where are the Chinese past lives? China has an outrageous population. Where are the past lives in African tribes, in Scandinavia during peaceful times, etc? Why was everyone part of the Civil War, the Holocaust, the French Revolution, etc.? Why did no one live in the obscure, not-so-significant countries/areas in history? I'm sorry, but I'm not buying some of the replies I've gotten.
