(Chicago Sun-Times)   Israel's Holocaust memorial says it has now identified 4 million of the 6 million Jews who were killed by Nazis in the Holocaust of World War II. Take pause to let those numbers sink in   (suntimes.com ) divider line

Holocaust. Yes, we've heard of it. Thank you for our daily reminder.

Did they use an IBM computer to build the database?
 
2010-12-21 04:01:24 PM  
Have they identified any of the non Jewish victims, the other 6 million or so gays, political dissidents, other persecuted religions, gypsies, etc?

It's kind of funny till you think there really have been 4 or 5 genocides of the same level throughout the world since the Holocaust that many have never heard of.

Just wait until the Asians and Africans take over musical theater and Hollywood.

So they're 2/3 of the way through? Maybe if they took some of the manpower away from building settlements, they could finish the job.

I'm reminded of that Onion Headline which stated "Stalin unveils 'everyone dies' policy" or something along those lines.

Came here to say this, glad I'm not the only one who hates the "6 million" statistic.

Why bother? None of those groups were God's Chosen People™

The Japanazi's did what to who now? Was this after the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?
 
2010-12-21 05:40:50 PM  
This just in, the Holocaust still happened and all those killed are still dead.
 
2010-12-21 05:40:52 PM  
Hint to the Holocaust memorial: other groups were persecuted too, maybe you could spend a few bucks towards preserving their memory too?
 
2010-12-21 05:41:16 PM  
Yad Vashem says names are recovered through people who remembered the murdered Jews and by combing archival lists and other documentation. Not to be an asshole but after 70 years I would only accept archival and "other" documentation not hearsay not just memory of by now very old people.
 
2010-12-21 05:41:45 PM  

What Holocaust?

www.hgharticles.com

You should just smile and blow me!

 
2010-12-21 05:41:45 PM  

TheStaffAce: Yeah right.


This seems specious.

Not saying I don't believe the holocaust happened.

Just that I would have to get some methodology before I believe you have collected 4,000,000 names from events that happened 50+ years ago.
^Highly controversial opinion to have^
 
2010-12-21 05:42:25 PM  
Russia and China both lost at least twice as many civilians during the war. Why don't we ever hear about them?
 
2010-12-21 05:42:49 PM  
We should all show our respects by overdosing on recreational drugs at the Holocaust museum like these two high school students did today in DC (new window)
 
2010-12-21 05:43:12 PM  
That's roughly the population of Manhattan (1,537,195) + Brooklyn (2,465,326), with the Bronx (1,332,650), Staten Island (443,728), and Jersey City (240,055) still unaccounted for.

Yeah, well, there are Holocaust victims™, and then there are just people who happened to be rounded up and shot by Nazis.

Define "same level"

Cambodia? Sure. The Khemer ROugue killed about 1/3 of everybody living in the country

Rawanda? well the best estimate is 800,000 killed out of a population of 9 million, but fark it, any time you approach 1 million dead I won't quibble

Cultural Revolution? 50-100 million certainly gets on the list

but none of those are exactly "things no one has every heard about" so do please enlighten me what genocides you were thinking of

Treygreen13: The what?



The holocaust never happened. That nice muslin feller from Iran said so.
 
2010-12-21 05:44:03 PM  
over 70 million people killed in WWII, subby, or around 4% of the prewar world population

/how're those numbers for you?
 
2010-12-21 05:44:14 PM  
Here (new window) is the list of names if anyone cares.

Check with the Gay and Gypsy Holocaust Memorials. Then hit the "Political Dissident Holocaust Memorial," and so forth.

Then again...I don't think homosexuals and Gypsies kept detailed records of their membership, so your point is invalid.
 
2010-12-21 05:44:45 PM  
So when they're done, are they going to start in on helping identify the victims of the Porajmos, then?

I mean, if you've got the time and resources to identify the remains of 6 million people, why not lend some of that to knock out another 1.5 million who probably have neither time nor resources?

That'd be the decent thing, right?

ThisNameSux: Russia and China both lost at least twice as many civilians during the war. Why don't we ever hear about them?


Neither of those groups had any money or property to speak of. The Jews did, what with those little bags of gold they all wear on a necklace and all that.
 
2010-12-21 05:46:02 PM  

bigpeeler: Holocaust. Yes, we've heard of it. Thank you for our daily reminder.


Yeah, this. Maybe we can just watch one of the 14,240,345 movies about the subject.

Because, and try hard to wrap your mind around this, there is a pretty significant difference between war casualties, bad as they are, and the deliberate rounding up, shipping and mass exterminating of a group of people for no other reason than what religion/cultural heritage they had.

Understand this: The "showers" were built because the German High Command realized they couldn't spare enough bullets to kill everyone they want to.

Yeah, but a lot of them were homos. YHWH ain't down wit dat. It says to in the Torah.

If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them. - Leviticus 20:13
