Although the teachers, clergy, and parents of every modern society must introduce and explain the Holocaust to every man, woman, and child, these figures of authority should ultimately clarify that it yields no real "moral" or "lesson," at least not in the conventional sense. Why? If we derive any meaning from such an event, we only serve to justify it. See: irony
"You know, the damned Zionist media NEVER talks about the Catholics or homos what died in the Holacaust! sic
"Yes, it's true that millions of people suffered. But every time some brings up the subject, you feel the need to inform them that people other than the Jews died. Does that mean that their deaths are any more or less meaningful? Does it merely reflect your insecurity with the fact that a different ethnic/religious 'team' has the upper hand in the fundamentally strange, myopically inhumane moral hierarchy by which you live?"
"What are you saying about me, man? I'm not one of those spooky deniers or anything. I just want to make sure people understand something about it, you know. About what the event means, about who it effected."
"There's nothing to understand. The Holocaust lacks historical precedent and defies comprehension. We're not talking about a goddamn kids show, wherein an exciting new life lesson is imputed to the events surrouding a childish error of judgment minor moral quandry... We're talking about the slaughter of millions. Try for a moment to fathom that. The Nazi's murder-machine was more efficient when it came to killing the Jews because members of that group, confined to ghettos and/or the Pale of Settlement for untold generations, could very easily be rounded up and shipped to death camps. When Hitler first devised his philosophy, the Jews drew an unfair proportion of his ire, probably because he recognized that the long, glorious history of anti-semitism in Europe could be exploited to buoy support among the masses. The people of Germany was receptive to state-sponsored anti-semitism and willfully ignorant of their government's worst excesses, so it's kinda difficult to write them off as having simply 'followed orders.' Basically, wherever you turn, you'll find skulls in towering heaps, and that's about it. By the way, crediting the Holocaust with laying the groundwork for the state of Israel is reasonably accurate, albeit representative of either some informed person's egregiously opportunistic bent or the lengths to which the average man will go to rationalize mind-boggling atrocities."
"Gee, and here I was thinking you'd commiserate with me."
something that did happen, but 11 million people were killed, everyone hears about the 7 million Jews who died, but no one even cares about the 5 million peasants, christians, Roman Catholics, and others who were killed

1. The Holocaust applied to the organized government persecution and genocide
of various ethnic, religious and political groups during World War II
Germany and collaborators. This was mostly aimed at Jewish people - called: "Final Solution
of the Jewish Question
", however in the Roma and Sinti were also targets as were other “objectionable” groups of people – Poles, Soviet POW (Inc. Russians and other Slavs), mentally or physically disabled, homosexuals, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Communists, people who objected to the government and criminals. Estimates place the total number of Holocaust victims at up to 26 million people, although the number 9 to 11 million is usually held as more reliable. Alternatively Holocaust deniers or revisionists believe that the holocaust did not occur – far fewer that approx. 6 million Jews were killed. Holocaust revisionists also deny that extermination of Jews and other groups was not a centrally-planned Nazi attempt. This argument is generally dismissed by most historical groups due to aural, written, visual and archeological evidence.

People need to know that in the Holocaust not ONLY did Jews die but homosexuals and Gypsies did too, why you ask? hell if I know, Hitler didn't like anyone who wasn't straight or Aryan.
