Fuck the Holocaust!

bwstump-1020226

The provocative title Fuck the Holocaust neither denies the occurrence nor the extent of the atrocious organized murder of millions of people under the Nazi regime. It is used in the sporting sense such as when X claims that Big-toe Bill was the best player ever and Y answers, ”Fuck Big-toe, Nickin Nick was twice the player.”

We are told time and again (and have no reason to doubt) that 6 million Jews met their death in the Holocaust.  We are also told never to forget it. Why? Why shouldn’t we forget it? It has not helped the Israeli Zionists show compassion, tolerance, restraint or justice toward the Palestinians. On the contrary, if this is the way the non-forgetters treat others, forgetting seems a blessing.

The never-forgetters also tell us that the Holocaust was the worst crime ever. Fuck the Holocaust. It isn’t even close. At least 10 million Africans died in the Congo alone under Belgium’s rule a half century earlier. The same forced labor (de facto slavery), torture, displacement and widespread murder occurred in the British, French and German colonies as well. The number of Africans who fell victims during the theft of ivory, rubber, gold, diamonds and other resources probably equals the total number who died as the result of WW2. But, hey, they were only Africans. Nothing to get upset about. Or remember. The colonial powers assured us that they were bringing enlightenment, democracy and progress to the savages. They forgot to mention what they were taking. The corporate powers of today are still taking.
And forgetting to mention it.

The well-written book King Leopold’s Ghost by Adam Hochschild gives a clear picture of the colonial greed-generated terror that brought so much suffering and death to the Africans. A great (mandatory if possible) read.
