Civilian Casualties in occupied countries came mainly from Nazi Jewish Extermination programs as well as the exportation of Civilians to Germany for Slave Labour. In the Soviet Union and Yugoslavia, besides the killing of Jews, a very large number of Civilian casualties came from so called "Anti Partisan" Operations conducted in German occupied territory. In countries which were occupied by the Germans at the start of the War, Civilian casualties exceeded Military.
