from my english teacher, this is some notes she gave us / Ms. Freedman's definition of The Holocaust:

"The Holocaust usually refers to a specific event in 20th centure history: the state-sponsored systematic persecution and annihilation of European Jewry by Nazi Germany and its collaborators between 1933 and 1945.

Victims: Jews, Gypsies, the handicapped, homosexuals, Jehovah's Witnesses, Soviet POW's, and political dissidents

Why? Not simply the logical and inevitable consequence of unbridled rascism. Rather, rascism, combinded with centuries-old bigotry, renewed by a nationalistic fervor which emerged in Europe in the later half of the 19th centure, fueled by Germany's defeat in WWI and its national humiliation following the Treaty of Versailles, exacerbated by worldwide economic hard times, the ineffectiveness of the Weimar Republic, and international indifference, and catalyzed by the political charisma, militaristic inclusiveness, and manipulative propaganda of Adolf Hitler's Nazi regime, contributed to the eventuality of the Holocaust."
The Holocaust is more than just "the genocide of European Jews and others by the Nazis during World War II"...

A major element of the Nazi Black Legend.
Person 1: "The Holocaust narrative doesn't even make sense."

Person 2: "It's been used by the jews as a predicate to acquire billions of dollars in 'reparations'."

Person 1: "...We're gonna need a bigger oven..."
