From Publishers Weekly
Isaac Bashevis Singer first suggested that "for the animals, it is an eternal Treblinka." Charles Patterson (Anti-Semitism: The Road to the Holocaust and Beyond) expands on that risky analogy in his latest book, Eternal Treblinka: Our Treatment of Animals and the Holocaust. Patterson hypothesizes a risky causal relationship, too, when he writes, "since violence begets violence, the enslavement of animals injected a higher level of domination and coercion into human history by creating oppressive hierarchical societies and unleashing large-scale warfare never seen before." Was human "enslavement" of animals the first step on the road to the Holocaust? Patterson doesn't say as much, but it's clear that he feels our inhumanity to the nonhuman is one of our greatest evils.

I truly blame nobody - everybody is free to decide - whether to see and make the changes...
I believe we owe it, not only to the uncountable billions of innocent animals suffering just out of sight, but we owe it to ourselves to open our minds and hearts to their plight. Only then do we have a chance of making ourselves and the world better and kinder and helping them in any significant way.
Some people say the comparison disparages those that were murdered in the Holocaust (which include several ancestors of mine) but I say that NOT making the comparison trivializes the suffering experienced by billions of animals every year.
