Came here to post the Rifkind thread but see it’s been done. Proper grit in the eye thread.

There's something I can't quite explain about how the fact that genocide isn't just about killing people, but erasing all trace of their existence, that makes the effort of keeping that one woman's memory alive seem so important.

That was the a Nazis intent to remove all trace of the Jews wasn't it? Im not sure about the genocide in say Rwanda or was that mass murder though its called genocide. 

All survivors accounts should be kept alive thats right as in that Storyville that was on the other night, it had a group of students asking questions to one of Waffen SS and fair play to the old man who had agreed to do so explaining how one can get caught up in what happened and the dangers of xenophobia. 

Going back to what i posted earlier about the Lithuanians doing the killings and the Croations against the Serbs even Himmler was disturbed about the brutality of how they went about the ghastly business, the hatred they must of head for fellow Balkans to do such a thing is unthinkable and it went on in 90s where genocide was committed then. 

Who would of thought that these things would happen in our lifetime, its medieval

Read an article yesterday about the main guy on the Board of the Auschwitz museum. A difficult poaition , with the Polish government pushing them to make it about locals that helped the Jews and hide the locals involved in atrocities , while being criticised by people opposed to the government saying he is too accommodating

Everyday should be Holocaust Memorial Day as a permanent reminder that we shouldn’t ever let anything like this happen again

There’s a good story here about an historian who lived in the Warsaw ghetto. He wrote down the Jewish history and culture and buried it in milk churns to be found after the war as he knew the population would be killed and the Eastern European Jewish culture obliterated. He was killed with his wife and son in 1944. 
 

I think they found a couple of his milk churns but at least one is still missing, buried under office blocks somewhere. There’s a great book about him.

Edited. Not worth it. 
 

This can never happen again. China are being cunts but the world is letting them do it. Society is broken
