To some people very much so. I’m not going to go through a campaign of hate mail again for failing to observe the capitalisation when talking about the ‘6 million Jews’ who died as part of the Holocaust within the holocaust.
As I said, there is a very sophisticated and well-funded propaganda arm behind this, and you seem to have been reeled in hook, line and sinker in terms of the numbers. The piece below from Wiki shows how history has been re-written. Holocaust, small h, once referred to the whole system, only in the late 60s and early 70s did the capitalisation argument start. Besides that, the rest of the article from Wiki is basically correct so far as I was taught about the holocaust.
Whoever told you it was just 6 million Jews you need to go back to and ask why they dismissed the others, I would suggest, or to enlighten themselves before passing on misinformation and Holywood History (note the capital Hs).
You’ve admitted the death of 6 million jews but ignored the deaths of at least 6 million others, indeed questioned my use of the number or any number over 6 million, which suggests you think only jews were involved, if you thought at all.
Perhaps you should educate yourself on the matter, it isn’t difficult to spend a few minutes looking it up instead of just presuming I don’t know what I’m talking about.
"Names of the Holocaust vary based on context. “The Holocaust” is the name commonly applied in English since the mid-1940s to the systematic extermination of 6 million Jews by Nazi Germany during World War II. The term is also used more broadly to include the Nazis’ systematic murder of millions of people in other groups they determined were “untermensch” or “subhuman,” which included primarily the Jews and the Slavs, the former having allegedly infected the latter, including ethnic Poles, the Serbs, Russians, the Czechs and others.
