Some individuals have described what has been done by some countries to some indigenous peoples as genocide. For example, Australia Day parties without the white guilt: The failed sentiment of the Hottest 100 poll
The way nations’ remember is no accident - even more so for a settler-colonial society like Australia. It serves the settler in this country to deny that it’s foundations are genocide and dispossession. It serves the settler to deny that it is the beneficiary of such genocide and dispossession. It serves the settler to believe it is the self-made country. Our existence as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people is, as John Howard referred to, a “blemish” in the history they tell themselves.
Has Holocaust Remembrance Day been used to commemorate genocides other than the Nazi Holocaust? If so, has that included genocides against indigenous peoples? Either by governments, or non-government organisations that are reasonably mainstream, and are not maliciously trying to dilute out the Jewish link to the event.
