Did the Holocaust Jews go to hell?
First, I meant "Limbo", not "Purgatory".  My error.  The unbaptized Jews (who did not convert, even in a miraculous way) would go to hell and maybe some to Limbo.

A person dying as a Jew certainly does not desire baptism.

As far as the invincibly ignorant being saved, we have this as an example:
Quote: The most remarkable instance of Divine Providence’s use of extraordinary means in our particular case, is the amazing, thoroughly documented, story of the Venerable Mary of Agreda (d. 1665). This humble nun while praying in her convent in Spain was miraculously transported to America and preached to various tribes, some a thousand miles apart, from Texas to the Pacific before the arrival of the missionaries. 13
  So the Lord sent a preacher.  This is one of my "improbable, but not impossible" scenarios.  So the Lord could have stopped time, or transported a monk, to preach and baptize dying Jews, and you would not know it.  So we can't judge a particular Jew.  But if he died a Jew (we can't be sure), then a person did not go to heaven.

As far as those outside the Church being saved, baptized Protestants who are not in Mortal Sin, go to purgatory and then heaven.  So all baptized Protestant children before the age of reason are saved.  They are not guilty of formal heresy.  In a way, they are Catholic, though material heretics.  Please note that most Catholics are probably material heretics in some of the more esoteric theological topics.  For example, most probably believe that the wine species is the Blood only, and the bread species is the Body only.  That is material heresy.
