Palestinian Writer on Holocaust Remembrance Day: Maybe It Happened, Maybe It Didn’t

At the Palestinian news site Sama News, writer Khudair Abu Tammam discussed the Holocaust on the occasion of International Holocaust Remembrance Day.

The first part of the article is mostly accurate, discussing specific atrocities committed against Jews during the Holocaust, including Kristallnacht, Josef Mengele’s inhumane experiments, and early German attempts to mass murder Jews before building the gas chambers.

But even in that section of the article, Tammam mentions the Roma, the mentally disabled, and others victims of the Germans, and asks, “Why was it historically called the massacre of the Jews despite the presence of hundreds of thousands of non-Jewish dead?”

Tammam then tries to minimize the German role in the Holocaust, saying: “Contrary to what is commonly thought, the Germans were not the only ones who participated in the organization of the Holocaust. Other countries, including Italy, Croatia, Hungary and Bulgaria, contributed to the extermination camps, and history doesn’t know if Hitler was responsible for the genocide.”

You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
