History does not repeat itself but does serve as precedent. 17th Century secularized Europe transformed Jews from religion to nation, then race. But 1700 years of Christian anti-Judaism preceded antisemitism. The Holocaust was the nearly successful final solution to Christendom’s Jewish Problem. Most Jews today limit blame to the person of Hitler. We believe our country exceptional, free of lethal antisemitism. Thus convinced we raise, no subject our children to the Precedent. This is Denial.
