Did the Holocaust Jews go to hell?

If the children had not yet reached the age of reason they would not have been punished at all. I would assume Limbo for them as the Church has declared baptism to be necessary[i] [/i] for children as well.

As for baptism of desire: it has never been defined in condemnation or affirmation by the Church. It is purely a theological specualtion and should not be presented as if its doctrine. Since it has never been defined by the Church the defintion varies according to person. When the Fathers of the Church and people like St. Thomas Aquinas referred to it, they were only referring to catechumens who were prevented by death from receving the sacraments. The Church has delcared that no one can be saved without Faith and specifically said that Jews will depart into the everlasting fire with the devil and his angels. So a Jew could not receive so-called baptism of desire unless He believed in Jesus.

But let me note that I am NOT saying 6 million Jews went to hell. We can never know if someone died uncoverted or not and its not our place to judge them. I'm sure St. Edith Stein(who blamed the Shoa on her people's faithlessness) and St. Maximilian Kolbe(who called ecumenism an enemy of the Immaculata) made many converts as well as the thousands of other Catholic priests, brothers and sisters who there, suffering with their brethren bringing the Good Knews to them.
