I have always had the impression that the term "holocaust" was adopted to refer to the Nazi extermination of Europe's Jews in the last few decades. It wasn't used that I recall even into the 1970s. I worked at Ellis Island 1978-80 talking about immigration and refugees and we would have answered questions about the WWII period and I don't remember seeing or using the term.
