An expected announcement today from the International Historical Studies Collective confirms what media contributors have long assumed: that human history comprises 98% Holocaust and 2% ‘other stuff’.
The announcement, made at the opening of 68 new Holocaust museums around the world, dealt with concerns raised that many people fail to notice or acknowledge everyday events, situations and utterances which could ‘lead to another holocaust.’

“Many people refuse to believe that the holocaust was singularly the most important, pivotal, and representative event in all of human history,” says historian John Smith.
“Today’s announcement is intended as the first step towards correcting this error,” he adds.
All non-holocaust history is to be universally regarded as ‘footnotes’ divided into pre-Holocaust History, During Holocaust History, and post-Holocaust History.
“And everything that ever happens will be assessed on its role in leading to the Holocaust, or resulting from the Holocaust,” explains John Smith.

Some suggest that pre-historical events should also be considered in their role as leading to the Holocaust.
“It’s simply not enough to study events such as the Mongol invasion or Korea, the Unification of Italy or the War of the Roses as events that led to the Holocaust,” says Holocaust specialist Martin Rudd.
“We must also consider how pre-historical events led to the Holocaust. Events such as the Cambrian explosion, the great ice age, and the replication of RNA crystals that led to the emergence of single celled organisms.”
“All of these events,” he adds, “led directly to the genocide of the Jewish people”

Before the announcement there was debate in some quarters about whether the Holocaust should be considered to be merely 90% of all of human history, with some historians pointing out that the Atlantic slave trade ‘must be at least 8%.’ But these dissenting voices were proved wrong and some may now face legal issues as a result of their anti-Semitic attempts to minimise the Holocaust.
“The important thing,” says John Smith, “is that we all agree that all things must be considered with reference to the Holocaust. The rise of Trump, for example, shows all the signs of leading to a new Holocaust.”
