CAN IT HAPPEN AGAIN?

Can a Holocaust type tragedy happen again? Probably not. The Holocaust happened because of a collusion of a few conditions:

  1. The paroxysmal violence of World War II, that provided the smokescreen for this mindless violence.


  2. Hitler the Phenomena: The emerging of a charismatic and deranged leader, who saw in the Jews the powerful enemies, bent on destroying him.


  3. The creation of the Totalitarian Nazi State. This state was created accidentally by Himmler and Heydrich, with Hitlerís consent and blessing. Only in a Totalitarian State could a leader order the murder of million of people, without a written order, public discussion or protest.


  4. The creation of the SS organization, a de facto Hitlerís private army, self-supporting from the plunder of the victimís possessions and extensive use of slave labor in their multiple enterprises. The SS, under Himmlerís leadership. Blindly executed all Hitlerís orders and provided all the raw firepower necessary for the killings.


  5. Finally, another contributing factor was the silence and indifference of the whole world toward the fate of the Jews. It was a conspiracy of silence that encompassed the Churches, the allied leadership including Churchill, Roosevelt and Stalin.

The simultaneous existence of all those conditions made the Holocaust tragedy possible. It is doubtful that the set all those conditions will ever appear again.
