    unspeakable racist homophobic bigoted hands on that didn't fit their perverse ideas of what the world should look like. Unfortunately, there were 6 million jews within range of their murderous ambitions and the rest of the world shamefully did so little to help them escape the Nazi murder machine. That being said, did the Nazis not murder Poles and Roma etc. as enthusiastically? Reminding people that the Jews were a major target but not the only target of the Nazis doesn't diminish the horror of Nazism and what was done to the Jews, it emphasizes how monstrous, crazy, totally evil and unjustified were the mass murders perpetrated by the Nazis.
