Why the Armenian genocide is not as important as the Holocaust?

    Chiefly because the Armenian genocide happened in a region more remote from Western observation, was restricted to Asia Minor, and came at the end of what was at that time the bloodiest conflict in history and nations were also trying to cope with the Spanish Flu pandemic of 1919-20.

    Look at who the victims were in the holocaust & who does all the talking about it (in the schools, media, ect.) 🙄 .

    Yes, what was done to the Native Americans was wrong. But what are you saying, go back in time? Kill more pple in acts of revenge? No one is saying it was right. I love Native Amer culture. Gosh I even have Native blood in me, & if in those days, I’d side with them even if I’d died. But I’m not in that time, it was wrong, I do think we should talk with each other & make amends with them - figure something out through an honest discussion towards one another (after all, cultural misunderstanding is what led to all the fighting to start with, so let’s go back). Peace won’t be made when today when ur living in that kind of a past hundreds of yrs ago.

      The question didn't mention Native Americans. It was about the Armenian genocide. Don't read so fast.

    The Jews died in bigger numbers (1,5 million Armenians murdered by the Turks vs 5,5-6.3 million Jews) and have much more influence in media and film.

    There's nowhere near as much documentation, film, eyewitness accounts, and survivors of it as the Holocaust.

    Because it doesn't involve the Jews.

    The "Holocaust" is strictly a Jewish event, although other ethnic groups are mentioned when necessary to help bolster the sympathy for the Jews. But in a large percentage of the discussions on the subject, ethnic groups other than the Jews are hardly ever mentioned.

    The term "antisemitism" pertains only to the Jews. When someone questions the Holocaust and makes a statement that shows the Jews in an unfavorable aspect, they're being "antisemitic". But there isn't even a specific term to condemn anyone who criticizes someone of different ethnicity - in a non-general sense.

    (In response to Tina's obsession to generalize:) "Racist" can pertain to *any* ethnic group. "Antisemitic" pertains only to the Jews, and there's no term that is commensurate with this that applies to any other ethnic group. The reason is, the term is used as a tool of censorship. And "racist" is not a term used for censorship.

    All ethnic groups are guilty of racism to a degree thanks to the divisions caused by political correctness. However, it's more prolific in those groups that promote racism (as the NAACP) than those who don't dwell on such issues. "Racism begins in the mind of the racist."

    There is another instance in the saga of the Jews where word-specifics come into play.

    When Hitler invaded Poland, it was claimed that he was trying to increase German living space by killing Jews and taking over the country - for which he is still condemned for doing. A term was created for it called "Lebensraum".

    Today, Isreal is doing the same thing to the Palestinians, but instead of coining a term against it and condemning them for it, they're supported by the rest of the world.

    Even though the land belongs to the Arabs (through agreements that were reneged on), the Zionists moved in anyhow, with the help of Britain and two world wars.

    The United Nations gave them land to establish an independent state (again, land that didn't belong to them) and since they declared their sovereignty, they have been on a steady push to increase their living space at the expense of the Arabs.

    Currently, the size of Palestine has dwindled to almost nothing and is in danger of being completely wiped out. The conflicts that have gone on there have all been part of one continuous conflict that started when Israel claimed their sovereignty in 1948.

    Israel is supported in everything they do and no matter what happens in the conflict, everything is always Palestine's fault.

    Such is the importance of the "Aristocrats of the world". And this is why the Armenian Genocide takes second fiddle to the Holocaust.
