inexplicable-elise asked:
I recently read your post about Anne Frank. I haven't read anything by John Green, so I have nothing to say about that, but I noticed you seemed to refer to the Holocaust as what happened in the concentration camps ("readers are never forced to experience the Holocaust through her eyes"). I may be misinterpreting you, but I was always taught that the Holocaust was the entire oppression of the Jewish people/minorities during the time of Nazi Germany. Is this inaccurate?

The Holocaust of European Jewry began in 1941 with the implementation of the Final Solution. Everything before that was aimed at making life so unpleasant for German Jewry that they would have no choice but to emigrate. Jews in countries taken by the Nazis after 1941 lacked the emigration option as by then the Nazis had noticed that no one actually wanted Jewish immigrants. If you want to learn more about European Jewry and international immigration policy between 1933 and 1945, there’s some stuff here: http://historicity-was-already-taken.tumblr.com/Israeli-Palestinian%20Conflict%20Historical%20Bibliography#Holocaust%20History

Can’t speak to the timelines of the other groups oppressed by the Nazis rn because it’s six in the morning and I’m about to miss my bus and the only reason I was able to give a fairly coherent answer is because this is straight outta my MA thesis.
