Can Marxism explain the Holocaust?

After Holocaust Memorial Day, and with French fascist Front National leader Marine Le Pen due to speak at the Oxford Union despite the fact that her father – Jean-Marie Le Pen once described the Holocaust as a ‘point of detail’ of history, this weeks Leeds SWP meeting will see a talk by Sabby Sagall, author of Final Solutions: Human Nature, Capitalism and Genocide, on the question of whether Marxism can explain the Holocaust. Those attending might be interested to read in advance Alex Callinicos’s 2001 article ‘Plumbing the Depths: Marxism and the Holocaust’ which is online:
