It always makes me feel confused when I read or hear about that Holocaust victims are "automatically" associated with being "martyrs." After reading this article, I feel better because Dr. Laszlo Harsanyi mentiones the same. At the Volga River, in 1836, Jewish children did a monumentous act of Kiddush Hashem. But the victims of the Holocaust had no choice. They were murdered. I found this described as a "Kadosh Paradox" or "Passive Kiddush Hashem" by Rabbi Ahron Lopiansky. Lopiansky goes so far to say that the Holocaust can be attributed with "fury of Divine retribution." I don't know what to say about this. In their song "An Englishman in New York," Kevin Michael Godley and Laurence Neil Creme say in one phrase "Disturbing facts about Nazi splinter groups seen on the news. They`re picketing synagogues and claiming that Hitler was King of the Jews." Denial or even "justification" of the Holocaust is punishable in many countries and the Holocaust "isn't just about Jews" which is something extremists, who "use" the Holocaust and "abuse" its victims in their worldview, do not understand. This would be like Mahmoud Ahmadinejad talking about "Holocaust Zionism" and might be the reason that many Israelis talk about a constitution for Israel which does not include the Holocaust as a "justification" for the state of Israel. The Holocaust can not be forgotten and must be remembered but the vision of the state of Israel by Theodor Herzl, and the people who already worked in the land for decades before the Holocaust, should not be "reduced" to it.
