This morning I was watching something about the Auswich (sp?) concentration camp from WWII, and was wondering what everyone's opinion if the Nazi's didn't kill thousands upon thousands of jews and others in concentration camps, how would the world be different? Would it be better, or worse?

I'm not exactly sure what to think on this, but I do think we might've been better off.

Do you honestly mean we would've been better if the Jews had been slaughtered, & would've been worse off if they hadn't???

For a start we'd probably all be speaking German or Japanese. ???

You misunderstood me, I meant we would be better off if they hadn't been killed. But the reason I asked, what about over population problems? I'm not exactly sure about the population density in Europe.

I'm also not sure if the Nazis discovered anything useful from their "medical experiments" that came from the concentration camps.

I dont know if we would have been better off per say. Things may have turned out slightly different, but i dont believe any drastic change would have occured if they had not been slaughtered.

The Jews themselves, religious ones, anyway, view whatever happens as being God's will. The holocaust certainly gave Zionism a shot in the arm. In my view, something good comes from virtually anything that happens, but that doesn't mean that we should herald the the holocaust as a necessary condition for progress. Certainly, those who lived through the holocaust and their close relatives would be hard pressed to find the good in such an atrocity.

I agree, that is why I was asking.

Again I agree. It was a terrible thing for people to have to go through.
