Uniqueness of the Holocaust
have gone through your thesis which you kindly sent us.
In reply for your quest on the uniqueness of the Holocaust
as distinct from other eruptions of genocides that have
taken place since the end of World War II, the Holocaust
was unique because:
it was not the result of a sectarian war between two communities,
but the determined act of a western power which claims high
the six million died as hostages for the free world in accordance
with Hitlers threat in 1939
reason why it took a long time for World Jewry to shout
about the Holocaust is the appearance of Holocaust denials.
It is becoming as if Neo-Nazis will get away with
this greatest crime in human history. In my view those who
deny the Holocaust should be treated as if they took part
trouble with the activity of Holocaust education establishments
is that they do not bring out these points. Unless they
stress these values, any attempt to remember the Holocaust
becomes meaningless, a) because not enough Jews are left
to say it must not happen again and b) it has been happening
again in other countries.
