The Nazis were violent toward the Jews after the Crystal Night, it wasn't, however, the extermination which occurred later. The most important thing with the holocaust is what we do with the knowledge about it, so it doesn't happen to again to other people. Knowledge is useless if we don't use it
Entrepreneurs are simply those who understand that there is little difference between obstacle and opportunity and are able to turn both to their advantage.

There is a group that we often overlook when talking about holocaust and it is the Jehovah's Witnesses.
On April 1, 1935, Jehovah's Witnesses were banned by law. The authorities took children away from their parents and sent them to reform schools and orphanages, or to private homes to be brought up as National Socialists. In the concentration camps, Jehovah's Witnesses were required to wear a purple triangle to distinguish them from other inmates. Many of them died from disease, hunger, exhaustion, brutal treatment, and exposure to the cold. About 10,000 Witnesses were imprisoned in concentration camps during the Nazi period. An estimated 2,500 to 5,000 died.
To many people, the Holocaust and Jewish persecution started in 1939, with the declaration of war. However, what people may not be aware of is the fact that German persecution of Jews started significantly earlier than that. Anti-Jewish laws and regulations were brought into Germany along with the Nazis in 1933. At first, the laws and regulations started out small.
Many German Jews started trying to leave Germany but firm anti-Jewish immigration laws, however, only allowed so many hundreds of Jews to immigrate each year. Many just moved across the border to France, Poland or other neighbouring countries, which would soon be swallowed up by the Nazis. When the war broke out in 1939, it was prohibited Jews by law to leave Germany.

Sorry Guys but irrespective of Iranian Nuclear Issue, one thing i'm unable to comprehend that if Iran is not allowed to keep Nukes or even an ability to make em, then Why a Country Named Israel with Aggressive History, Expansionist designs and record full of genocide in palestine is allowed to keep such a large stock of Nukes, Why this IAEA never bothers to say a word about them what to talk of inspecting em? Please give me a brief logic so i could find my way into the situation, so far does'nt make any sense?

Pakistan, India and North Korea should not have nuclear weapons. It is not proven that Israel has nuclear weapons (most think they have, me included). They never have detonated a nuclear device, the others did.
They did not sign the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons either so they cannot violate it. (North Korea withdrew), Iran did and violates the treaty (that's why there are international sanctions).
They did not sign the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (Israel did, Iran didn't). Israel has not violated it, the others cannot.
The IAEA cannot inspect sites in countries that didn't sign the NPT treaty. So they cannot inspect Israel, Pakistan, India and North Korea but they can inspect Iran.
About Israel's agressive history: that country was attacked several times by several countries. In my point of view the attacker is the agressor not the defender. No one ever attacked Iran. Israel gets attacked almost every day (rockets from Gaza) and has to deal with terrorist attacks, that's why they are building the fence and having checkpoints in parts of the West Bank that are under the security of Israel (see Oslo accords).
