It is a real story. It really did happen - more than 6 million innocent people lost their lives in nazi death camps.
I knew it already, but after watching the movie, I felt a strong urge to say this:
Cultural Relativism is wrong. There are some opinions, some beliefs, some points of view - which are just plain wrong.
They are worth less than others. National Socialism is amongst the wrong opinions.
Cultural Relativism "teach" that all opinions are equally valid. That is wrong, as is self-evident in the case of National Socialism.
Once you accept that, you know there are certain moral truths which are - true!
I do not know what is right, but I do know what is wrong. I believe that if we can sort out all wrong opinions and beliefs, ultimately we will find the right opinions and the right things to believe in. Simply by reducing the number of options.
Another lesson we can draw from this, is that all people who hold negative values - because there exists not only wrong opinions, but harmful wrong opinions - negative values - should not be allowed to exist.
National Socialists are such people. They should not be allowed to exist.
EDIT: Really good counter-argument here:

They are, after all, just human beings who LOOK AT things from a particular different perspective, just like you do.
Then, we could start encouraging them and supporting them to LOOK AT "others" from a Truly OPEN perspective in a Truly loving way, just like we NEED to do with you and your "kind". The Truth is 'we' NEED to do this with all of us, which is literally ourselves.
