The Bible explains the Holocaust perfectly. In fact a main story of the Bible is the story of an earlier holocaust, namely the fall of Israel to Babylon. This was certainly a holocaust with a similar proportion of death and destruction to the recent Holocaust. The reason for the first holocaust was that Israel had become corrupt. Israel had absorbed the false beliefs of the surrounding cultures and had lost all moral integrity. As a result, Israel was punished. This was in fact a necessary thing because Israel needed to be purified. A corrupt culture should be destroyed and one can hope that the remnant will become good. The Bible says that both the righteous and the wicked were punished in this holocaust and this is inevitable when there is such violence.
I see the recent holocaust as being more or less the same story. Many Jews absorbed and participated in the Liberal culture of Europe. Liberalism is no better than worshipping Baal. The Wiemar Republic was a particularly liberal society which incorporated many Jews. The liberal Jews lost all morality and were/are basically corrupt. The Nazis played the same role that Babylon had played in the earlier holocaust. The main difference between these two holocausts in my mind is that modern Jews have misunderstood the recent holocaust. They portray themselves as victims without accepting any responsibility for their participation in Liberalism. If Jews don't learn the right lesson, then history will repeat itself and there will be more holocausts. I would prefer that that be avoided, but it can only be avoided if Jews shift their focus from studying the Talmud to studying the Bible.
