In the modern world, being a victim gives you status points. So "owning" the Holocaust is like a jackpot - the Germans gave the Jews lemons in 1941-45, and then the Jews made lemonade. Unfortunately, not all Jews are partial to sharing the lemonade stand:
I wasn't *100%* tongue in cheek when I predicted that Russia will be held responsibile for the Holocaust by handshakeworthy Western opinion-setters by midcentury. It seems that I was hardly alone in this sentiment amongst my followers. This idea - that the Soviet-Russian genocide of the Jews under Russian nationalist Jughashvili is predestined to be...

In a recent post scriptum to one of his articles, Israel Shamir mentioned the trial of a Holocaust denier in Russia, a professor at Perm University called Roman Yushkov.

Title got your attention? No, it's not going to be... that. Read on.
