I've typed out multiple responses to this. I can't do this.Here's another one:
I think I have a better than average understanding of what transpired in Germany leading up to what went down in Nazi Germany. A lot of German Jews simply refused to believe that "their" government would do what it did. We're talking about men who were decorated WW1 veterans. Families that had lived in Germany for generations.
You say "never forget" - but from where I stand : Jews seem to have completely forgotten not the end result of the Holocaust, but what got them there in the first place. They forget that they weren't dumped into boxcars and shipped out to camps on a whim or an entirely made up pretense. Germany was a shit show after WW1. Communist revolutions, the debauchery of the Weimar Republic, massive hyperinflation, the feeling they were sold out after WW1 (many Germans had no idea why they lost that war - it felt like somebody sold them out). Those Communist revolutions and the Weimar debauchery all had heavy involvement by Jews.
These things do not go unnoticed.
That was my family that went into a concentration camp.
