They're so different though. It's not like a comparison between animal to animal or comparing two historic events to one another.
And it's easy to say wolves are cool and people like them, but does anyone actually going around saying they LIKE World War II ? LOL I know A LOT about WWII, but I have trouble saying I actually like it without feeling like I'm a horrible person who enjoys suffering.
Some of my family members were in Nazi party and in Hitlers Youth. My grandfather questioned it and helped Jewish friends escape. He was arrested for his transgressions by his own uncle (he was quite high up in rank) and only got out because of his connections within the prison.
Even if you felt it was wrong, many were scared to stand up to droves of men with guns going around. My grandpa ended up as a spy for the US and was cut off from some of the family heavily into Nazi beliefs and kept in touch with some who did not. It seemed some of my grandpas brothers stayed because it was the thing you do, not that they believed Jews were bad people either... they were kinda just stuck.
And some did not know Jews were treated that way...they kinda thought they were moved to live somewhere else, to their own Jew city (which was what they originally did was built walls around the ghettos) , not death camps.
My quote said I DON'T think Germans lost their morals and that there WAS more than one family helping Jews. XD
I agree that most of them didn't know what was going on and just assumed the Jewish people in their towns were moved somewhere else to live, not die. I simply pointed out the fact that most people didn't ask where that place was located or try to visit. They simply continued on with there lives assuming the Jews were continuing their lives somewhere else. Not only do I think that assumption is niether good nor bad, but I would probably jump to the same conclusion if I was a German living in Germany during WW2. While I think your Grandfather is an honorable person for what he did for his Jewish friends, I would not look down on his brothers for inaction.
