When the Holocaust took place in Germany, Germany was at that time the most developed country on Earth—intellectually, economically, artistically, and so on. So it’s very difficult for us to understand how any educated people would do such a thing, if indeed educated people can do those kind of things. So yeah, I expect that it can happen anywhere on Earth. In Rwanda also, it was not, as I just said, the masses who planned genocide. There, too, it is people who got their Ph.D.s and degrees from the US, from Canada, from Western Europe and so on. So yeah, I expect that genocide, if it happened in Germany, it happened in Rwanda and other countries, it is indeed a threat to humanity.
