own classes on the Holocaust, I define it as the
implementation of the directive(s) of the Final
Solution, the ultimate purpose of which was to
eradicate genetic "contaminants" in the gene
pool being engineered for the creation of a
Nuremberg Laws were specifically for determining
who qualified and who didn't. This does justify
the inclusion of the mentally and physically
handicapped, and -- if it were thought to be a
genetic condition and not a social one --
homosexuality would qualify. However,
homosexuals were given the option of "changing
their ways," and female homosexuals in general
weren't targeted at all.
the "Final Solution," there were only the
"entgultige Loesung der Judenfrage" and the
"entgultige Loesung der Zigeunerfrage," but no
Final solution of the Polish, Jehovah's Witness,
etc. questions. But our principal concern, in my
opinion, should be that such an awful event,
costing the lives of many groups, should never
be allowed to happen again.
the mass-scale murders of human groups didn't
end in 1945.
