If the Nazis hadn't tried to conquer the world, would other people have attempted to stop their Holocaust? Or would it have been ignored like other genocides?

Hard to say as the Allies were aware of it but couldn't really stop it till they conquered Germany. Hard to think of what the Allies would have done if there wasn't a war. Good possibility that the Allies would have sat on the sidelines wondering what they should or could do. I would like to think that they would declared war and stopped it but I'm not really sure they would have.

Given that the USA was engaged in eugenics programs of it's own at the time ... I'm betting Kaywinnet is right.  If there hadn't been a war, the rest of the world wouldn't have cared enough to get involved.

In fact, things may have gotten worse ... As the eugenics programs in the USA (and other nations) continued.  It's like finding the concentration camps in German territory shocked people to say: "Wow, that's where we're heading.  We don't want that."

Eugenics are very much alive and in use.  Darwin, Tesla, the X-Club all supported eugenics to weedle out the weak. They said pity was not a useful trait in survival of the fittest and advancement of the species.

What deer do you think get picked off by the lion? Weak and sick or the young. Read Darwin and his fellow associates ie X-club and The Royal Society. Darwin was also interested in artificial evolution.

If you put all deer underwater, they'll all die, no matter how strong they are.

My point is they support survival of the fittest. They believed that in nature the weak are picked off so that the group stays strong and thrives. They felt the same about society. You can read Darwin for yourself or any of the X-club members George Busk leading authority on Bryozoa. Edward Frankland chemist organometallic chemistry. Thomas Archer Hirst mathematician, geometry. Joseph Dawton Hooker, botanist closest friend of Darwin, set out to get their way with The Royal Society argued with The Crown. Thomas Henry Huxley biologist, nicknamed Darwins Bulldog, known for the furious debate 1860 supporter of Darwins theory because against extreme religious tradition. John Lubbock, liberal politician, philanthropist, scientist and banker, president of the Institute of Bankers invented terms Palaeolithic and Neolithic, involved in English spelling reform. Herbert Spencer, William Spottiswoode and John Tyndall.
