How many Jews did Hitler miss?

I have read that Hitler killed 6 million of the 9 million Jews in Europe. However large numbers of Jews were in Russia and Hitler could not get them. How many Jews in occupied Europe lived through the war? Thanks

Update:

Thanks for the answers, except for Sophieb. However no one has a good number. So far all the numbers given include the Jews that Hitler could not reach, like in unoccupied Russia. I suspect the true number is very low, in the tens of thousands. Hitler closed several death camps because he ran out of Jews to send to them.

    Scholarly figures are clear. The world Jewish population in 1939 was 16.6 million (give or take .3). Of these 9.4 million were in Europe. Russia was counted as 'Europe'. There may have been a few Jewish people living in Russian Asia but that is not allowed for in the figures because it would be an insignificant number (there weren't even very many Russian people living in Russian Asia then).

    The Nazis murdered 6 million Jews and 10 million other European civilians/ prisoners in their genocides, so the survivors numbered about 3.4 million Jewish people give or take .3.

    The Nazi population estimates were just that 'estimates'.

    According to the Germans themselves almost half. When the Germans held their official meeting to coordinate the "Final Solution" of the Jewish problem during the Wannsee Conference, they planned on eliminating "over 11 million" Jews in Europe and Russia.

    See section III below it lists, by country, how many Jews the Germans thought there were.

    The words in your question are mean, cruel, abusive. Words like "miss", "could not get", and maybe you asked 2 questions, the last one was the one best said. I don't think there was a headcount of how many "survived", but enough did to tell the story.

    Physically, Hitler killed millions.

    Psychologically, he hit everyone. No one will forget about the crimes against humanity he pulled.
