Example text

Often one can dissent from his views with ease, especially when his statements are flip or inaccurate. Yet one must examine his claim that inherent in the desire to affirm the uniqueness of the Holocaust - apart from the issue of its factual validity - may be a secular translation ofJewish chosenness wherein a people's specialness, once derived spiritually from the divine revelation at Sinai, is now recast as the inheritance of those wronged by the demonic anti-God (so to speak) who acted at Auschwitz.

Most importantly, Jews were killed not for what they were or for what they practiced or believed, but for the fact that they were - all Jews were to be exterminated, not merely the Jewish soul. Jews were no longer considered, as they were in Christian theology, the symbol of evil; rather, they were regarded as subhuman and were thus eliminated. Even the traditional category of Jewish martyrdom was denied to the victims of the Holocaust because they lacked the essential element of choice in their deaths.

Yet these two men differ markedly in their personal histories, their legacy and destiny. Simon Wiesenthal defines the word "Holocaust" as the systematic murder of 11 million people, of whom 6 million were Jews killed because of their Jewishness, and 5 million were non-Jews - Gypsies, Jehovah's Witnesses, homosexuals, political prisoners, Poles, Ukrainians, the handicapped and the mentally ill - killed for a variety of reasons in an apparatus of destruction designed for mass extermination. The machinery of destruction included the Einsatzgruppen, the concentration camps, and the extermination camps with their gas chambers and ovens.
