Victims of Totalitarianism

"Can we mourn both Soviet and Nazi victims, together?" asks Bryan P. Bradley — Mass murder memories. The author reports on the "one side accused of being indifferent to the Nazi-led Holocaust during World War II, and the other called blind to the perhaps less efficient but equally deliberate and massive Soviet slaughters spread out over decades both before and after that war" in a "debate [that] seems to focus on rivalry for attention to one's own victims, one's own tragedy, with unwillingness or inability to understand the other side's points and share the other side's pain."
