    schema:description "The Holocaust was perpetrated by the Nazis as a means of eliminating the Jews from existence. It was an unprecedented event in history, inasmuch as a nation-state had never before targeted an entire ethnic group for extinction. Yet, more than half a century later, there is a tendency to forget, if not to relativize, the Nazi extermination campaign against the Jews. More insidiously, a vicious effort is being made in limited circles to deny the Holocaust. Historical Dictionary of the Holocaust: Second Edition is another reminder of what happened to Jews and other victims of Nazi Germany's genocidal policies."@en ;
