Google Answers: Citation for unintentional abuse of European census data by Nazis
"Around the turn of the century in Holland, the Dutch government
started collecting mass census data about its citizens. It began
collecting religion in order to give people a proper burial. The
intentions were solely good. In 1939, that data was captured in a
matter of 3 days and (some reasonably high) percentage of the Jews
were executed in a matter of weeks."

"'.. These registration systems and the related identity cards played
an important role in the apprehension of Dutch Jews and Gypsies prior
to their eventual deportation to the death camps. Dutch Jews had the
highest death rate (73 percent) of Jews residing in any occupied
western European country--far higher than the death rate among the
Jewish population of Belgium (40 percent) and France (25 percent), for
example.'"
