I thought long and hard before approaching this post. As humans- we are responsible for some of the most horrific actions against mankind. One of those horrific times in our history was the Holocaust. Unfortunately- one of many acts of genocide in our history.
The Holocaust began in 1933 and ended 1945. Although for those that survived and lost loved ones can you really imagine that it was over?
It is estimated that 11 million people were killed during the Holocaust. Six million of these were Jews.
The Nazis killed approximately two-thirds of all Jews living in Europe.
An estimated 1.1 million children were murdered in the Holocaust.
While concentration camps were meant to work and starve prisoners to death, extermination camps (also known as death camps) were built for the sole purpose of killing large groups of people quickly and efficiently.
I bet your wondering why I’m writing about this- Well, because I read this one post and my heart broke:
The very definition of a Holocaust is:
Please tell me how pit bulls/ bully breeds compare to something as horrific as the attempted extermination of a entire population of people compares to the unfortunate tragedies of dog attacks?just some how explain to me how that makes sense. 32 dog bite related fatalities in 2012* for all breeds combined according to the notorious dogsbite.org ran by Colleen Lynn- who has made her platform clear:
Is every DBF a tragedy? Of course it is- but to compare that with the atrocity of the Holocaust is wrong and you should be ashamed of your self.
Please take a moment to remember the millions lost.
