    feeds into the tendency, particularly by galut historians and intellectuals, but also in Israel, to remove the Holocaust from its long and continuing context. Any death at the hands of intolerance is tragic, and should be confronted. And perhaps some of those organized xenophobic and racist assaults have their own historical origins. But the Holocaust is a uniquely Christian-Jewish event, and while we today have the benefit of a state of the Jews for refuge, the world is still dominated by the Christian West; our people predominantly continue to live amongst the Christian nations (yes, yes, secular, but cultural inheritors of that 2000 year long legacy of anti-Judaism, the Theology of Hate rooted in the founding documents of that group of religions. Our future, as past existence in this milieu, is tentative, at best. The past is past, but also precedent. Denial only prepares the ground for our next Shoah.
