The only point in having a memorial day for the victims is to show the world that it shouldn't happen again,and most of all to teach the children. There is no reason why we cant have a bigger,'Genocidal Day' instead with the Holocaust being a big part of it. The problem is when when you try to add the different peoples holocausts in it.Many have died at the hands of the Russians and the Chinese for instance,but would the Russians or the Chinese allow such at depiction? So you would end up with so many people complaining about this and that. After the war,the consensus was that the Jews were victims of the worst genocide of all time.This was easier to be depicted after the fallen regimes of the Axis nations. There is no doubt that a Genocide Day would be better but there is no way it can be shown now,and when it can,there we be no need for it. Meanwhile a Holocaust Day should suffice to show what barbarians in the name of purism can do.
