The Seventy Years Declaration

on the Anniversary of the Final Solution Conference at Wannsee

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

On this the 70th anniversary of the formal adoption by the Nazi leadership of the “Final Solution of the Jewish Problem” we the undersigned

Remember:

With humility and sadness, the Final Solution plan which formalised and industrialised the by-then ongoing Holocaust of European Jewry

The horror and brutality of the genocidal campaign of total annihilation of European Jewry conducted by the Nazis and their collaborators

That the mass killing of European Jewry preceded that formal adoption of the Final Solution plan by half a year, and began on the Eastern Front in 1941 upon the initiation of Operation Barbarossa and the Nazi attack on the Soviet Union

That millions of non-Jews suffered in numerous ways under the Nazis and other forms of tyranny in Europe during the Second World War.

Recognise:

The Nazi campaign of annihilation of the Jewish people was philosophically, qualitatively and practically profoundly distinct and different to other forms of oppression experienced by European people during World War II, such as the horrors of Stalinism also before and after the War

Our dismay that the lessons of the Holocaust were not learnt and genocide continues to occur in the international arena

The nobility of Jewish partisans who survived ghettos or camps and went on to fight the Nazis and their allies

The efforts of European states to acknowledge forthrightly their role in the Holocaust past

That discussion about genocide in Europe must be based on the definition of the UN Genocide Convention 1948

That antisemitism continues in various forms in Europe and beyond.

Reject:

Attempts to obfuscate the Holocaust by diminishing its uniqueness and deeming it to be equal, similar or equivalent to Communism as suggested by the 2008 Prague Declaration

Equating Nazi and Soviet crimes as this blurs the uniqueness of each and threatens to undermine the important historical lessons drawn from each of these distinct experiences

Attempts to have European history school books rewritten to reflect the notion of “Double Genocide” (“equality” or “sameness” of Nazi and Soviet crimes)

As unacceptable the glorification of Nazi Allies, and of Holocaust perpetrators and collaborators, including the Waffen SS in Estonia and Latvia, and the Lithuanian Activist Front in Lithuania

Attempts to legalise or sanitize the public display of the swastika by racist and fascist groups

Efforts to have the Holocaust remembered on one common day with the victims of Communism.

Advocate:

Distinct days and distinct programs to remember the Holocaust and other victims of other twentieth century totalitarian regimes

EU member states continue efforts to acknowledge their own roles in the destruction of European Jewry

The need for ongoing genuine Holocaust education and memorialisation across the European Union

Opposition to all forms of contemporary racism and discrimination and its manifestation, including antisemitism, contempt for Muslims, hate of Roma, homophobia, and other prejudice and intolerance generated by extremist politics.

Годное??

Дряни, какие же дряни — просто слов нет!!

Вас смущают "ужасы сталинизма"? Это неважно.
Важно, что разделили и отказались уравнивать.

The nobility of Jewish partisans who survived ghettos or camps and went on to fight the Nazis and their allies

с серединой и окончанием фразы я справился, осталось понять, что такое в данном контексте "The nobility of Jewish partisans"...

Концептуально же с документом могу согласиться, как с документом "дружественным" - не более. Здесь некая группа, которую можно условно назвать "друзьями прогрессивного еврейства" всего лишь указывают на уникальность Холокоста как явления нацизма, не дающее право уравнивать нацизм и коммунизм в СССР. Это всего лишь. Я понимаю александра - для него этот документ куда более значим. Для русского человека признание Холокоста уникальным не имеет ни значения, ни оправдания - русских в войну погибло куда больше евреев, и уничтожали их по такому же принципу, что и евреев - просто технология уничтожения была несколько иной, исход же должен был быть такой же. Первоочередное унгичтожение евреев, евреям на беду, было просто продолжением пропагандистской кампании, начатой еще в 20-е, начатой нацистами на некоей почве, кстати весьма удобренной во времена Веймарской республики всеми вовлечёнными сторонами, и педантичные наци решили закончить хотя бы с этим вопросом побыстрее - вот просто так вышло, что до русских они добрались позже, и русские были а) предупреждены, б) вооружены.
То, что в документе страдания русских упомянуты вскользь уже характеризует его как, мягко говоря, паллиативный и ситуационный. Как аргумент против "уравнителей нацизма и сталинизма" канает с грехом пополам - но моих аплодисментов не вызвал вощем

> как с документом "дружественным" … уникальность Холокоста как явления нацизма, не дающее право уравнивать нацизм и коммунизм в СССР

С чего вы взяли? Они хуже, чем уравнивают. Они отмечают что уравнивать не надо только ПОТОМУ, что это РАЗНЫЕ __преступления__, которые не надо путать:

Equating Nazi and Soviet crimes as this blurs the uniqueness of each and threatens to undermine the important historical lessons drawn from each of these distinct experiences.

ну, в общем, Вы поняли - документ из разряда "Бойся данайцев, дары приносящих"

Радует, что столько из Литвы. А из Латвии ни одного "коренного"... Из Эстонии вообще никого.
