Yea. I actually thought the debate was over, because people were proving my point. There is a subconscious programmed response to certain topics that terminates further thought on that topic. The Holocaust is one of them. Another is the topic of whether or not the government is good. Another is the topic of "conspiracy theories". What the guy just said a few posts before is basically another example of this. I still don't know why there is this programmed response against the Holocaust, but the reasoning behind my other examples of programming is quite clear.
Lone Weasel's article can also support the idea of government programming of impressionable school children.

Yes, but does it not seem like Holocaust education is a bit over the top? There is no historical event that delivers an emotional reaction as the Holocaust. What about the US-backed genocide at East Timor? Most Americans would ask East who? It happened at about the same time as Cambodia and is of the same scale, but it has garnered almost no media mention. Noam Chomsky actually did a case study on this in his book Manufacturing Consent.
I am saying that the emotional response to the topic of Holocaust has been either purposefully or unintentionally created because of the oversaturation of Holocaust education throughout the years. Like I stated before, extremely scary and horrible stories are told to us about the Holocaust since early elementary school, and I remember Anne Frank's Diary was especially traumatic and memorable for me when I was in fourth grade, and I went along with it until I began to learn about the other "unmentioned" atrocities. I put it in quotes because I do not mean it is literally never mentioned. I am merely asserting that no other single historical event, maybe other than WWII itself, is talked about as much as the Holocaust.
I am also pointing out the anchoring of the term Holocaust with "Jewish suffering".
But that doesn't make sense, as Jewish deaths, now purported to be 6 million, makes up roughly half of the 12 million that were killed in the Holocaust. To associate Holocaust with Jewish deaths is to ignore all the rest; the millions of Polish who have died, etc.
It is a tragedy, but it should not be associated with any specific racial group.

As kissinger once stated and besides him some other israeli politicians:
Holocaust is the best thing that happened to Jews. Of course he meant for pigs like him and other zionist pigs.
zionists brough Hitler in power and started WWI and WWII and managed to push US into every single conflict ever started even dough US was never attacked or threatened in any of them. List goes on and this exlusive teaching is just one small peace of zionist agenda amongst so many bigger ones like forbiding to debate genocide in many european countries.
Also, the single worst loss of lives in one Nation is by Far Russian and Polish, followed closely by Yugoslavs. Jewish deaths are not even close in numbers and real number is hovering around 600.000 which is still staggering by any standard but far of 60.000.000 Russians and similar events.
Did you know that after 40+ years they finaly changed memorial stone outside Auschwitz which stated : Here died more than 4 Million People mainly Jews....
In late '90's they finally changed it to over million People died here...
Tell me how come finale number of Jewish People killed in a WWII is still cited 6 million if they agreed that Auschwitz total was around million and not all Jewish but Slavs mainly and Gypsies.
Take a look in a white house and tell me the name of every single one of the most influential people there apart from bush who is a muppet.
Yes, that is right. ALL the most powerful positions are entirely ocupied bu zionists and they are using it for exterminations of us all ultimately.
You are very intelligent person that much is obvious, but your inability to see the facts in the face is astonishing and it doesn't add up!?

It should be taught. All of our mistakes, missteps and atrocities should be studied and remembered. The more we know about our mistakes, the less we'll repeat them. Or so I hope.
With regards to why is one more prominent than the others in our history books? Well, the easy answer is the holocause was a big part of a world war whereas these other atrocities were and are atrocities contained within a nation or region not resulting in a global conflict. It doesn't make it better but it does explain why darfur doesn't garner more attention.
The Jew L.P. Beria headed the Soviet NKVD secret police from 1938 to 1953. In 1945, he announced that they had discovered a "holocaust" of six million Jews. This conveniently occurred only in camps in Poland! Bria would not allow any outside investigators to examine these sites. The Jewish-owned New York Times reported in 1945 that Soviet Russia supplied the figure of four million Jews having been put to death, "in the gas chambers of Auschwitz." However, in July of 1990, the Polish government reduced this figure to 1.1 million and it was accepted by Jewish groups
