You said that more Slavs died than Jews ("the holocaust was never completed yet it resulted in many millions of deaths generalplan ost was never completed yet resulted in 11m+ deaths"). You need to look at the percentage of people who died in each group. 55% of the Jews living in the areas controlled by the Nazis and their allies died, against 17% for Poland--the country that suffered the most under the Nazis (and half of this number of 17% were Jewish deaths).
But they did not do it. Their priority was to exterminate the Jews.
Approximately 16 million Soviet civilians died: 10 million due to military activity and crimes against humanity; and 6 million due to war-related famine and disease.
The USSR had a Jewish population of 2.8 million in 1939. The lowest estimate of Soviet Jews killed is 700,000; the highest is 1.1 million.
If we compare and contrast the roughly 15.3 - 14.9 million non-Jewish Soviet civilians that killed with the widely accepted 6 million European Jews that were killed, his point that "more Slavs died than Jews" is unquestionable; and this is without taking into account the 3 million non-Jewish Polish civilians, the 140,000 - 500,000 Soviet POWs, the 10.6 million Soviet military personnel, or the 1 - 1.5 million Yugoslavs that were killed.
Regarding your point that "they did not do it", indeed, the Nazis did not exterminate every single Slav, however, likewise, they did not exterminate every single Jew in Europe. The fact that they were unable to exterminate the Slavs does not detract from the fact that the Nazis considered the Slavs as sub-humans, and, had Germany defeated the USSR, the Slavs would have received the same treatement as the Jews: enslavement and extermination albeit over a prolonged period of time.
Also, the priority of the Nazis was not to exterminate the Jews, it was to defeat the Soviet Union and thus end the war on two fronts; and with the gargantuan resources Germany would have at its disposal, force Britain into suing for peace or face inevitable conquest. Once that had been achieved, extermination or deportation to Madagascar, which was Heinrich's first plan, would have occurred.
