Hebrews Chosen 1900 Years or More before for the Holocaust
Judaists had enjoyed the special status of God's chosen people for 1900 years since the Diaspora after the Jewish-Roman War in the first century till six millions of them were executed by Nazi Germans.
There had been no other tribes that had enjoyed such a status. Judaists had been sometimes suppressed or treated badly by Christian monarchs and churches in that period, but they had believed that they were closer to God than Christians in that period. They had also felt superiority over Muslims who believed also God of Judaists.
Till the Holocaust in WWII, Judaists had thought that they were loved by God more than Christians and Muslims were. Having relied on this belief, they could survive 1900 years mostly in Christian-dominant societies. It is extravagant. It is beyond description. And it is excessive for any tribe to believe that they are loved by God more than any other tribes for 1900 years.
This too much advantage is horrible. Since, such a tribe should face a tragedy that is balanced with its special status. Then, the Holocaust happened.
It is as if God requested Jewish people to pay for its special status. Their 1900-year long status as God's tribe was compensated by the great tragedy of the Holocaust. Or the holocaust was balanced with the extravagant blessing of Jewish people over 1900 years as God's tribe.
Even eight million Germans died in WWII; 25 million Russians died in WWII; 550,000 French people died in WWII; 450,000 British died in WWII; 400,000 Americans died in WWII; 10 million Chinese died in WWII; and three million Japanese died in WWII.
And six million Judaists were killed in WWII as God's tribe that had survived over 1900 years after the Diaspora.
The more you are blessed by God, the more you are requested to pay in tragedy. But can Judaists today feel proud that they were sacrificed so much in WWII because they were God's tribe?
But of course, there is a reason for God to request its tribe to sacrifice in a tragic situation. Or we might say that in order to prepare a tribe as His own for sacrifice for a huge tragedy the mankind faces, God chose Hebrews 1900 years ago or older. God must have chosen Hebrews for sacrifice in WWII 2000 years or more ago.
Anyway, after WWII, Europe changed. Europeans became more peaceful. It must be all due to the great number of deaths in WWII as well as revelation of the horrible and cruel nature of the mankind as shown in the Holocaust.

Luk 10:21 In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes: even so, Father; for so it seemed good in thy sight.
