No, people of African descent were not killed in the Holocaust. This may seem somewhat strange given that the current neo-Nazi movement is very hostile to black people, but in the early 20th century the Nazis were concerned with ethnic groups who lived in Europe at that time, and there had not yet been any significant African Immigration to Europe.

I assume you mean other than the soldiers killed in the fighting, and the civilians who worked in the resistance. No. Jewish people were, indeed, rounded up and sent to concentration camps in German-controlled Europe, but so were gay people, western sympathizers (for example, anyone who listened to American music was in danger of being rounded up), and others. Many people died in the Holocaust. In the United States, for a period of time, Japanese Americans were also sent to "detention camps", though we rarely discuss this.
