Where does one start when talk­ing about the Holo­caust? The word derives from the Greek, a burnt offer­ing, a sac­ri­fice by fire. It is one of the great­est crimes in human his­to­ry. And we are cau­tioned to learn its lessons. His­to­ri­an Tim­o­thy Sny­der argues that The his­to­ry that we might under­stand is rather dif­fer­ent than the his­to­ry that we gen­er­al­ly remem­ber and that if we did it right the lessons that we draw from the present and the future would be dif­fer­ent lessons than the ones we draw now. And that’s impor­tant,” Sny­der says, because whether we like it or not we are already draw­ing lessons from the Holo­caust. We do it all the time. But what if we under­stand the Holo­caust incom­plete­ly or even incor­rect­ly, then we’ve drawn the wrong lessons and we may be accel­er­at­ing dis­as­ter rather than pre­vent­ing it.”
