I wasn't aware it was appropriative, but Shoah feels more appropriative personally because to my knowledge it's only used among Jewish people. I don't think it's necessarily just Americans. I thought it was all English-speaking Gentiles, but I don't really know.

yeah i was mostly asking the question cause i got a few english speaking jewish people i know in my followers

i think it was americans first then that wording just spread in the english speaking world?

then again i might absolutely have no right to talk about this it’s only because that’s really against things i’ve been told in my family, whom i am not very close to, at all, soooo

I'm American and I think we say "Halocaust" because thats what we learn growing up in school is the approriate term for it. I wasnt aware there was another name for it until you said it. ok, byee :))

This I understand, but then the question is, why is it the word they teach you?

The two words are hebrew and i’ve been explained in my family that shoah means “the great disaster”, while the holocaust is something more among the lines of “the great killing that had to happen in the will of god” which a lot of european jewish people rejected because that genocide wasn’t intended by their god. Ok it’s actually really more complicated than that but hebrew is a super complex language so that’s the summary of the summary i got from my grandparents.

In france (and other european countries) we just get teached the word shoah at school, i first saw the word holocaust in an english book then saw it a loot on the internet and i don’t understand why english-speaking jewish people accept it? and maybe there’s something i don’t know about the culture (i’m not close to my family sooo don’t know much about it) and it bothers me

why do americans say holocaust instead of shoah

its a legitimate question i don’t understand it grosses me out we don’t do that in france and i grew up in a half family with a jewish during WW2 history
