i agree that the two cannot be compared...they were indeed different instances with different motives and goals. nor should their commemoration ever be combined, because doing so WOULD tend to rob each of their tragic distinction in the world's collective memory...especially now that the generations who experienced them, and/or witnessed them, are beginning to fade away. they each need to remain distinct in order for their historical lesson to remain intact.
