.@latimes has a film critic who has a hard time believing that the holocaust was horrific. He could fact-check instead of assuming.
If anything, these films censored the horror because reality would be too disgusting.
Here are officers having fun right outside the chambers.
Some of the scenes in the movie recreated the photos.
This is not Sobibor ( I don't 100% know which one but I am guessing it is one of the 6 in Auschwitz).

But to show you none of the scenes in the movie were fake.
Even the boots part of the movie is real.
Here is the man who grows up (Toivi in the movie).

.@raabele for example, claims the party scene in Sobibor was cinematic over-reach.

Selma Engel's testimony mentions worse.
Selma and Chaim who escaped together. They got married. Had a long life and moved to CT. They had children and grandchildren.

Can we refrain from using the holocaust as a historical analogy when it is not applicable?
X is just like Y is a pretty bad analysis form because you don't get reasoning and logic. No one identifies the key features that make it similar.

Better approach a more targeted analysis.
Step 1: Do you understand why a social taboo and/or law exists?

In post-war Europe, holocaust denial laws had a very practical purpose:

#MedicareForAll in comparison to full nationalization is pro-business.
Being publicly in support of Abolishing Ice is not imperialist if we compare it to "child cages"
