Also it makes the Holocaust sound like a big, fun game, which I’m pretty sure it was not. It’s just really unfortunate wording. I can’t even figure out what they were trying to mean. And, belle, the 6 million votes thing refers to the people who died in the Holocaust. Terrible, shocking, but, I admit, funny joke. Is that the part you didn’t get?
FHsGirl I agree. He’s not all that special enough to win a prize just for surviving. They chose the prisoners at random to take to the gas chambers, to be burned, shot, worked to death, etc etc. Really, he was just a lucky bastard. Kudos to him, though.
The Elie Wiesel thing was a Fox News screw up. They were talking about him being a Holocaust survivor and Nobel Prize winner and ended up combining the two. What a surprise that Fox News would make such a mistake.
