In the Russian Revolution, 40million people (or 100million, depending on the source you believe) were slaughtered. Why does the media and government place more importance on the deaths of millions of one particular people from WWII? If we're going to make comparisons, many times as many Christians were killed in the communist uprising, for example. So why does no one care? Who's building monuments to their memory? Who's paying reparations to their families? That's been a question in my mind since I learned about it in History class.
