The direct comparison of the value of human life by geography, cultural origin, and by class has always amused me. How have a genocide in Rwanda (2 million dead), a cultural cleansing in Russia (20 million dead), the killing fields in Cambodia (1.4-2.2 million dead), just to name a few, been so quickly forgotten while the holocaust (6 million dead) will be remembered forever?

That's because it happened in Europe, the center of the universe.
