us about the endurance of the
genocidal impulse in our world
and about the need to be ever-
vigilant in putting out the spark
of hatred wherever we see it.
By featuring the current pho-
to exhibit on Bosnia, they are
making a deliberate point: that
while this museum centers on
the Jewish Holocaust, it will ul-
timately be an unimportant
place unless it can respond to
new instances of genocide.
This, necessarily, involves tak-
ing chances.
L\
The Holocaust is a "safe" top-
ic in the sense that guilt and in-
nocence are clear-cut, despite the
demented claims of revisionists,
whose audience remains a mi-
nuscule one. The perpetrators,
at least the major ones, are dead.
The culture that spawned it has
acknowledged its role in spawn-
ing the Nazi killing machine.
But in Bosnia — or any of the <
other places where killing is tak-
ing place on a systematic, mass
basis — there are complex polit-
ical questions that tend to dis-
tract us from the bottom-line fact
of genocide.

Since the breakup of the for-
mer Yugoslavia, Serbian-Amer-
ican groups have been actively
arguing that Bosnian Muslims
and Croatians are just as mur-
derous as Bosnian Serbs. With a
certain degree of accuracy, they
make the argument that the sit-
uation in Bosnia is far too com-
plex for moralizing from afar.
Officials at the Holocaust Mu-
seum are as aware of that com-
plexity as anybody. But they also
are aware of a corresponding fact:
The politics of genocide is simple
and clear-cut only in retrospect.
Speaking out against histori-
cal genocide is easy. Taking a
stand against genocide in today's
world is always politically risky
— as it was for the few in the
1930s and 1940s who dared to
speak out on behalf of rescuing
the tortured Jews of Europe.
Officials of the Holocaust Mu-
seum have made a choice: that
their museum should be an ac-
tive element in the fight against
genocide today and tomorrow,
whatever its scale, whomever its
victims. The Serbs may not like
that. In the future, sadly, there
will other groups who will insist
that the museum is violating its
mission by delving into current
controversies.
But in choosing to become an
active agent in today's world, not
just a reminder of the past, mu-
seum officials are honoring in the
best way possible the uncounted
millions who were Hitler's vic-
tims: by trying to avert future
holocausts. ❑
