... and societies, and makes an impact in our own lives as well. Examples of this would be how tactical we start and finish wars, if we let propaganda get to us, or how we don’t let just one person reign.

This moment in history is much better than before more rights and freedoms, better technology, and more education to help prevent any future genocide. From the holocaust people can learn not to do this again. The world would be a better place if all races and creeds developed tolerance and respect for each other - but all sides have to make the effort.
