    The Holocaust was one of the greatest crimes in history. But in 10 or 20 years time it will be beyond living memory. It will be history. An appalling piece of history, but still history nonetheless, along with all those other bloody and horrifying pieces of history of which there are sadly so many. Inevitably, there will be less programmes about the Holocaust and fewer visitors to Holocaust museums. You may not like it, but it's inevitable. Just as fewer people are interested now in WW1 than in WW2. Inevitably too, Jewish people will be seen less as victims and more as just ordinary people. That's as it should be, but it also means that they will have to take criticism, both just and unjust, like evrybody else. There are plenty of people on this site and on the web happy to spout rubbish about Londonistan and perfidious Albion and evil British colonialists. Plenty of people spouting rubbish about any race or nation really. It's ALL just a click away.
