  1. How long until this is treated as a historical story instead of a “day to remember” for those who weren’t even born yet?

  2. That’s exactly what history is — remembrance.  And I guess if you were in England, you’d have trouble with Guy Fawkes Day.  Remember, remember, the th of November, and all that.  Do you have trouble with all holidays? History classes? Or only ones pertaining to Jewish people?

  3. I have a little trouble with the fact that it seems like every day is Holocaust remembrance in this USA.  My home country Russia lost 20 million people to the Nazi  invastion. We lost more to the butcher stalin, but we do not blare it out every day.  The Holocaust was an awful event. We do not need to be reminded everyday.
