The Definition of the Word “Holocaust”.

October 17, 2013

The definition of the word ‘Holocaust”.

The term holocaust comes from the Greek word holókauston, referring to an animal sacrifice offered to a god in which the whole (olos) animal is completely burnt (kaustos).  (hólos, “whole” and kaustós, “burnt”)

The following events seem to properly fit that meaning, because humans were burnt alive:  Hiroshima, Dresden, Gaza.
