Is Jesus responsible for the Holocaust? If so, how much?



  1. It depends whether you attribute the root cause of anti-Semitism to Christianity or not. Personally, I do not think that the “blame” for the Holocaust can be attributed to any one person or ideology. As Jews we believe that everything is part of a Divine plan. What is true, however, is that historically Christianity and other religions have been the source of much anti-Semitism in the world which has led to an immeasurable amount of Jewish blood being shed through the ages.
