Holocaust and genocide – What is general and what is specific?

The article examines the question how specific the holocaust was and how can it be compared to other genocides – the fate of Armenians or the German repression of soviet peoples also resulting in millions of victims. According to the author, the specificity is that the holocaust was not limited to one country only, as it happened in Turkey before, and offered no escape for the Jews, while it offered the chance for collaboration for other citizens of the Baltic states and the Soviet Union.
