It is very convenient for Europe to put all the blame on the Holocaust on Nazi racism. First the "racism" purifies the European churches which (in contrast with the churches in the U.S.A.) promoted the idea that Jews - and not the Romans - killed Jesus. Second, the Nazi regime is also very convenient in letting all forget that virtually all Europe knew and took part. It also permitted to ride on the "German economy horse" up to this day: "you Germans better work for us if you want to be reenter in the community of nations". It is also convenient for the Israeli left-wing who tells us that "there was never real antisemitism, there was only racism, and today people are only against the occupation, not against Jews". The point is that the Holocaust was not only the wish of the Nazis, and not only the wish of Germany, but the wish of all Christian Europe.
