Final Solution

Dear Editor:

The attempt by Moshe Ronen, in his Aug. 11, 1999, letter to the National Post, to elevate the Jewish holocaust during WWII to ubermenschen status at the expense of other genocides relegated to untermenschen status is based on the false assertion that the Nazi master plan was to eliminate the Jews from the face of the earth.

It is more correct to say that Hitler's intention was to eliminate Jews from positions of economic and political power within Germany and, later, from the areas conquered by his armies by "encouraging" their emigration.

To facilitate this, Adolf Eichmann developed a cosy relationship with the Zionists to direct such emigration to Palestine. Everyone was happy. Hitler rid the German lebensraum of Jews. Eichmann got rich buying up Jewish businesses at bargain prices. The Zionists saw the Jewish population of the forthcoming Israeli state increase markedly. And the unfortunate immigrants found themselves alive in the Promised Land.
