President Trump just doesn’t get it. The Holocaust is a uniquely Jewish tragedy. Yes, millions more lost their lives and were targeted (e.g. homosexuals, communists, Catholics, labor unionists, etc.) than the 6 million Jews, but the Nazi intent to destroy the Jewish people and Judaism itself defined the essential nature of the World War II Holocaust. For the President to ignore the fact of history that 6 million Jews were murdered is remarkable for its utter lack of historical perspective, understanding and moral sensibility. Shame on him and on his advisors.
