The Holocaust means a lot to many people today, and to an equal number of people very little. It shows we are still a young civilization in knowledge for the way we treat each other, whether it be for race or religion.
To some of us in society who are Jewish the Holocaust means the death of many of our people. It stands out as the most current opposing action against a religion, and to memory the worst to anyone. And from this comes the most notable phrase from the Jews, "never again." Meaning that they will never let themselves as a religion be tortured, and enslaved again, at least not if they can help it.
To many of us non Jews, whether it be Christian or Muslim or whatever, I think it is taken in a much more broader light. We see that the total destruction of a religion was at hand, but also see that it is not the first to come so close. But rather the most current. It is a simple and bold reminder that some people are just not very smart, and for that same reason we must look out for all to be at peace with all.
To the few people who deny the occurrence
of the Holocaust and rather
call it the Hocsacaust. The Holocaust just means exactly what is in the dictionary, "great or total destruction especially by fire." And by no means is the genocide of European Jews, and other groups by the Nazi Germany during WWII.
To me the Holocaust means the most current gigantic thing to happen to a group of people. In my opinion, not the last either. To those of you who say that there is no way this is going to happen again, I laugh at you. It is a fact that there is a religious
war going on right now in the middle east, and has
been going on for as long as people can remember. For those who say that what is going on in the middle east is not a genocide, I'll just say that you are right so far but I would call a nuclear bomb which is the hottest thing on the black market since the USSR fell a genocide tool. And finally...
