Speaking after the New Covenant established by Christ with His Church, there is no answer, as judgment by God is individual. We know that the Jews who crucified Jesus declared "Let his blood be upon us and our children" (Matthew 27:24-25), so there is certainly a curse over God's original chosen people who rejected and continue to reject His Son. 

St John Chrysostom wrote, "Observe here the infatuation of the Jews; their headlong haste, and destructive passions will not let them see what they ought to see, and they curse themselves, saying, “His blood be upon us,” and even entail the curse upon their children. Yet a merciful God did not ratify this sentence, but accepted such of them and of their children as repented; for Paul was of them, and many thousands of those who in Jerusalem believed."

As stated before though, each judgment is individual. But make no mistake - a person who consciously rejects Christ is not likely to enter the Kingdom of Heaven.
