This is the first time I’ve heard Schiff mention the Holocaust, and he is very much off the Shoah business reservation.
He blames the rise of Hitler and the Holocaust on the treatment of Germany after World War I. Noam Chomsky says the same thing in one of his little pamphlet books.
This is a very revisionist view of the Holocaust. A public school teacher would be fired for saying this.
The Treaty of Versailles and abuse of Germany theory of Holocaust causation means any guilt of Germany is greatly mitigated. Singling out Germany for unique and total guilt is like blaming an abused dog for biting, or an abused child for growing up violent.
