With Holocaust Remembrance Day just passed, I again had reason to look at how we have come up with new ways of Holocaust denial that no longer include denying the Holocaust happened. I talked about this subject before. I encountered some newer techniques recently, that intentionally or unintentionally, serve to dilute the historical import of the Holocaust, or even of history itself. I wandered across some other things too. So, I’ve decided to meander my way through my various thoughts on the tidbits I have seen recently.
I’ll start off with some modern-day reminders that anti-Semitism remains alive and well and end with some dissection of an argument against the history of the Holocaust, or any history for that matter, having value at all. Sit back but hold on. You are in for a long and winding ride. Much like I did when I talked about Blade Runner 2049.
