“How Holocausts Happen, The United States in Central America”: A Review of the Book by Douglas Porpora
Number of pages:
A 3 page overview of the contentions presented by Porpora that the public opinion surrounding U.S. intervention in Central America was similar to the public reaction to the Jewish Holocaust as it was perpetuated by the German Nazis, that general apathy allows such Holocaust-like events to occur. This paper contends that while Porpora is correct in his contention that the U.S. has been at least indirectly involved in many atrocities in Central America, to compare the events which have unfolded there to the Jewish Holocaust of World War II is an overt distortion of the facts and circumstances.
