Duh! yes, Des, you're right. I think "Holocaust" was used as a translation for "Shoah". However, some scholars claim that it is only to be used for the "Jewish experience" because theirs was (in their mind) the only one where a whole genocide was planned (a very debatable point in my book!)
I watched the film " Defamation " if it is fact, the treatment of those Israeli children, is nothing more than brain washing, as a friend of Israel, it was very interesting to see another angle.
I haven't seen that film, so I don't know if it covers the same ground, but I did see one documentary about a Jewish man going back to the town where he was born before the war. I think it was called "Shtetl". One of the guys he encounters was a Polish librarian in the village who was trying to promote the Jewish history of the village and to find old Jewish gravestones so he could restore the Jewish cemetery.
During the film the librarian is taken to Israel to meet a high-ranking rabbi, who praises his work. Then the poor guy meets a load of Israeli high school students who just attack him verbally for being Polish, demanding that Poles admit and acknowledge their blame.
The film was also interesting because one man returned to the village to reward someone who'd helped him. The old Pole is puzzled as to why this gentleman is giving him a present. When he finds out who it is, he starts shaking... he starts telling tem man that he was one of the people who'd helped him but other villagers had said he had actually sold the family to the nazis, because he had turned up wearing the Jewish guy's coat. The old Jew comments that he'd given him the coat as a thank-you at the time. of course he remembered the help he'd been given and this was why he had returned to reward him.
I found it interesting, especially when we consider how much stock is put on the memories of "witnesses".
ah, found it:
