I am wondering if any scenarios allow players to test the drain on the Axis war effort from the Nazi racial policies and concentration camps.
Numerous authors have noted the drain on transportation and other resources plus the loss talented people caught up in German extermination of Jews, Roma, Gays and others.
Many of those killed or worked to death might have contributed to the German economy if a different policy had been followed.
There are a number of scenarios that could be explored including:
-- Nationalists, but not Nazis
or Nazis who put off extermination until after the war.

Thousands of troops were deployed in extermination campaigns while millions of potential workers were killed or worked to death who might otherwise have been employed thoughout the war.

Please don't use this thread to start a political debate. Smarter folks than me have pointed out the diversion of resources into the Holocaust. It seems like it might be a valid issue in simulating Axis strategic choices.

Interesting topic

I have often wondered how the outcome of WW2 might have been changed , If the Nazis had put aside their racial policy's.

Like you suggest treating the Jew's etc fairly and setting up actually productive war industry factory complexes in Poland and treating and feeding them fairly.

Also recruiting Russian PoW's to fight against Stalin from the beginning and also using Ukrainian and the Baltic states nations to fight alongside them.
