Sorry mate, what you are saying is rubbish. Remember the Warsaw Ghetto? Those few jews kept the German army at bay for months, which included their elite SS. Those jews were ripped off by SOB's who sold them firearms that didn't work and ammunition that wouldn't fit many guns. Yet they put up a valiant fight.
If they were able to do battle against the brown shirts, while they were taking control of the govt in the 1930's, then perhaps they would've prevented those large scale massacres they had to endure. The nazis would've thought twice about what they did if they felt that there would've been a strong armed resistance, as opposed to dealing with a population of sheeple.
There are many examples of how small groups battled the Germans with much success. My former son-in-law's grandfather was in the Dutch resistance and when my son-in-law visited Holland with his father he was pointed out street corners where his grandfather killed those bastards. He was shot himself, but survived. There were lots of dead nazis lying around and there's even film footage that shows what they had done. My stepfather while on a Danish merchant training ship out at sea at the age of 16 was forced to cross the Atlantic, cause the Germans invaded. He made it here and eventually served in the US Army and won the bronze star, but his brother was on a different ship that was sunk by a U-Boat. He went home many years later and was told many stories about the Danish resistance where every jew was either hidden, or taken out of the country. The Germans didn't get hold of one jew to kill. Victor Borge was a Danish jew who was saved. There was also our Revolutionary War in 1776 fought by civilians that got us independence from the Empire.
Last, but not least I recall how the jews kicked the British out of Israel and became independent. So don't say that it's rubbish that armed jews wouldn't have made a difference. By the way, the citizens of the US sent their private weapons over to England just to see them dumped in the Atlantic at the end of the war. But fear not, cause now that we know how the British think about guns we won't send anymore if the Germans try to invade again. It's amazing what guns in the hands of patriots can do. Also, when you don't remember history you're destined to repeat it!
