Yeah there's a lot of contexts you can bring that information up, and a lot of contexts where it's a bad look. For instance going into a conversation about Jewish holocaust survivers and saying "you know, the Jews weren't the only group..." and pointing out in a different context that say, Romani people have a long history of discrimination in Europe including being killed by the Nazis. There's also, as mentioned, the Holocaust minimization tactic of insinuating that the Jews that were executed were executed because they were gay/communists/whatever.

I absolutely believe there's some high strung Jewish people somewhere who really believe you should never mention other affected groups, or someone who just had a bad day dealing with a denier flying off the handle when it wasn't warranted, but it's not, IME, common.
