Opinion | The Real Reason Belarus’ Dictatorial Regime Is Downplaying the Holocaust

We cannot be naïve. The recent WWII genocide law, which falsely equalizes the Holocaust with Nazi reprisals against non-Jewish Belarusians, is as much about history as it is about today: Anchoring the totalizing repression of the Lukashenko regime.

We in Belarus won’t divide by ethnic origin the blood spilt by the Nazis: Belarusian, Jewish, Russian, Tatar, Ukrainian, declares Belarus’ ambassador to Israel. Every one killed on the territory of Belarus were equal victims of a uniform, undifferentiated crime: genocide, including the 800,000 Jews killed there.
