The evidence of human atrocities is all around us. We cover our ears, close our eyes, and invoke a one-word explanation for all manners of human suffering: evil. No better example can be found than in our response to one of the most horrific acts man has enacted upon fellow man, The Holocaust. It is only now in the second decade of the twenty-first century that the number of Jewish people in the world has returned to the pre-Holocaust level. And yet, despite decades of scholarly work, the Holocaust still gets reduced to this simplistic response: Evil. Perhaps, the horror, pain, and grief remain, preventing many from asking the question, “Why”? Because of this, we are no closer to preventing holocausts from occurring, a fact that is emphasised in the many genocides since.
