They are convinced that since the masks went away that means they were right all along. It’s really a grasp to erase how wrong Trump was and that they followed him but the really do think this is all a big win.

Why Holocaust Analogies Are Dangerous

Nazis seem to be everywhere these days. I don’t mean self-proclaimed neo-Nazis. I’m talking about folks being labeled as Nazis, Hitler, Gestapo, Goering — take your pick — by their political opponents. American politicians from across the ideological spectrum, influential media figures, and ordinary people on social media casually use Holocaust terminology to bash anyone or any policy with which they disagree. The takedown is so common that it’s even earned its own term, reductio ad Hitlerum.

This trend is far from new, but it is escalating at a disturbing rate in increasingly polarized times. The Holocaust has become shorthand for good vs. evil; it is the epithet to end all epithets. And the current environment of rapid-fire online communication and viral memes lends itself particularly well to this sort of sloppy analogizing. Worse, the environment allows the analogies to spread more widely and quickly.

This oversimplified approach to complex history is dangerous.

When conducted with integrity and rigor, the study of history raises more questions than answers. And as the most extensively documented crime the world has ever seen, the Holocaust offers an unmatched case study in how societies fall apart, in the immutability of human nature, in the dangers of unchecked state power. It is more than European or Jewish history. It is human history. Almost 40 years ago, the United States Congress chartered a Holocaust memorial on the National Mall for precisely this reason: The questions raised by the Holocaust transcend all divides.

Neither the political right nor left has a monopoly on exploiting the six million Jews, who were murdered in a state-sponsored, systematic campaign of genocide, to demonize or intimidate their political opponents.

That's what's frightening about this kind of thing. This woman could be one of those German villagers living close to the extermination camps, forced by Allied troops to carry all the corpses into mass graves.

... many forget that diseases were also a weapon in Adolf Hitler’s arsenal ...

... the Nazis .. purposely created conditions that gave rise to lethal epidemics ...

In the winter and spring of 1945, chaos reigned at Bergen-Belsen ... Nearly 36,000 — a staggering proportion of the camp’s inmates — died from infectious disease in the first four months of 1945. Typhus, the greatest of the killer diseases, became rife in February ... Bergen-Belsen was also suitable for pulmonary tuberculosis, spread through coughing, sneezing or spitting ...

... At the beginning of 1942, prisoners from the concentration camps at Mauthausen and Flossenbürg were deported to Stutthof ... In 1944, a typhus epidemic started to spread through the camp, reaching its peak in December that year when the number of victims equalled 9 % of the total prison population. In addition to this, prisoners died of hunger and typhoid fever ...

... In 1944 it becomes increasingly clear that Germany faces certain defeat ... “Evacuation transports” from concentration camps close to the frontline are continuously arriving at the main Dachau camp ... The catastrophic living conditions lead to the outbreak of a typhus epidemic. The prisoners in the subcamp complexes are subjected to murderous prison and working conditions. Of the some 41,500 persons who lose their lives between 1933 and 1945, over one-third die during the final six months of the war ...

... In September 1939, thousands of communists, social-democrats and former trade union leaders were arrested in Germany. 5,000 of them were sent to Sachsenhausen, as well as 900 Jews ... In November 1939, this number increased dramatically to 11,311 prisoners. At this time, the first Typhus epidemic started. Because the SS refused to give any medical care and due to the incredible lack of food, hundreds of inmates died in the following weeks ...
