    Holocaust: hands down.

    While slavery was drawn out over
    a longer period of time there is absolutely no comparison in the barbarity, the cruelty and the utter drive to extinguish a whole
    Race of people from the planet.

    Slavery, while abominable was not about
    Extermination.

    The Holocaust is most probably the worst
    Event against a single people in human history.

    Slavery is still happening. In fact there are more slaves in the world today than there has been at any point in history.

    Holomodor.

    Great Leap Forward.

    Both killed millions more, and just as brutally.

    10+ times as many Native American men and women were wiped out than the questionable numbers of the Holohoax.

    Ok...I should have singled North American
    Slavery specifically. Good point though.

    I doubt it. But your point is valid.

    It referred to the holocaust as a hoax.

    How is that valid?

    Well Stalin did kill like 20 million.
    But the hoax part is just antisemitism.
    You are correct.

    First, it's like lifting a rock around here. Mention the Holocaust and the creepy-crawlies come slithering out, dragging their slime with them about how it was all a hoax and there were never gas chambers and etc. You know animus can make you want to believe some really foul stuff I guess.

    Next, all of these are bad. Slavery is horrid, of course. But at least in slavery you maybe get to keep your life, wretched though it may be, and maybe a chance to escape. In mass extermination, such as the Holocaust, that is beyond horrid.

    The Plantation slaves had many more options than the concentration camp victims did.
