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 recog...
The Holacaust was the attempt of Nazi Germany during WWII to kill every single Jew, homosexual, Roma, disabled, Russian POW's, and many many other minorities. 6 million Jews were killed and 5 million Roma, gay, disabled, and other peopel who Hitler claimed were "inferior"were killed. 11 million in total. I am of a Jewish family. All my grandparents were in the Holacaust. Just my grandma alone- she came from a family of almost 100 people. Of those original 100- my grandma and 3 others survived. And for those of you who deny the holacaust- where did 96 people just from my grandma's family alone go? Where they shipped off the planet? Whatever happened to them?
And for those who say that Germans should be ashamed that they are Germans because of Hitler is strictly unfair. Not every German soldier actually believed in Nazi ideas. Many of them did, yes, and supported the "Final Solution". All soldiers had to fight, and I honestly dont believe every German supported the horrible acts of their government.
It is also a personal theory of mine that neo-Nazis deny the holacaust because they recognize what a terrible thing the holacaust was, and they dont want to believe that the people they admire and believe in could do such a thing. Once again, I am from a Jewish family, and my grandparents went through the holacaust- and so this is probably the most fair definition you will ever get.
During the holocaust 11 million were killed.
Hitler wanted to kill off evey single Jew, Gypsy, homosexual, disabled, Russian POW, some American POW's, and other minorities.
At the end, Hitler killed himself like a little pussy. The Neurenberg(sp?) Trials tryed nazi officials for crimes against humanity and war crimes. One of the main focuses of the Trials was the holocaust.
To utterly destroy something or someone.
Bob ordered a sheet pizza and holocausted the sh*t out of it, there wasn't any left for his friend Steve.
an event taking place under the Nazi government in Europe from 1939 to 1945 in which six million Jews and five million homosexuals, gypsies, Catholics, disabled people, Russians, Slavs, etc. were rounded up and slaughtered. Although other genocides have also happened, the Holocaust is unique in that it was the only genocide which was industrialized. The people organizing it were concerned with transportation, efficiency, materials, disposal, etc.
11 million people died in the Holocaust.
A program referring to the extermination of all "impure" people, mainly concerning of Jewish origin by Nazi Germany in the years 1939-1945
Even though the holocaust also involved nearly 5 million people of non-Jewish ancestry, the mass extermination of the Jews decimated the entire Jewish population of the world by two thirds, and nearly eliminated almost all Jews residing in Europe.
Let's not forget, if the amount of Jews was proportional to the quantity of Americans for example, then the casualties would likely be circa 200 million.
Israel was created as a direct effect of this incident, because the Jewish people simply had nowhere else to go!
