They both did suffer but in my opinon Africans suffered the most and i am not just saying that because i am of color but come on my ancestors were "property" for over 400 years. Jewish people only suffered for a about 4 years.

@ ZetZu....you think the Jews only suffered for 4 years ?.....and when it was over the survivers went home and were happy once again ?.....you have a very biased and narrow view of how long the Jews have surffered if you think they only have suffered during the Holocaust.....true Blacks were ' property ' for hunderds of years but you think they are the only ones that suffered during that time...you totally ignore the Red peoples suffering not to mention the other non-whites....they all have suffered and there is no way for one group to claim " Oh but we have suffered more than you " like it is a contest

ZetZu needs to learn more about it himself. Slavery only lasted 260 years in America...and allot of that was indentured servitude.
Report as
I don't have a biased view on anything. My question was "who do you think suffered the most" right? I only asked about "Africans" and "Jewish" not every other race or religion. You have your opinions and I have mine. It is really no contest on who suffered the most because we all know "Africans" suffered the Greatest but people won't admit it because no one wants to give "Africans" credit for anything we have done or been through.

The nazi party was here for alot more than only 4 years. The holocaust became known to the world at the beggining of those 4 years. It has been here for a while now.
Report as
well since you already had your answer then why ask the question ?.....and why limit it to only two groups ?....could it be that some ' people of color ' besides blacks have suffered more ?

Face it zetzu. Ur compley rong.

Death is far greater suffering then living as a slave and Jews have suffered many times over if you study history or the Bible. They were once slaves too.
Report as
I would prefer death to slavery. At least you only die once. Slavery was a deathly existence day in and day out, especially if you were male and made to work in the fields. Females were raped consistently. Children were separated from their mothers when slaves were auctioned--families broken up. Can you image the terror those children experienced and the parents' loss of their children. No thanks! Personally, I just cannot get it into my head that a lot of people don't like people who look, talk, walk, or whatever differently than they do.

Jewish. Slaves were important to landowners.

Important to Landowners? This can not be a honest answer. Your not even taking for consideration that slaves were humans like you and me.

Ouch, never knew they did all that. I respect both sides for what they have been through. Just wanted to know what the people thought.

After hearing that, I wish Hitler would have accidentally shot himself in the stomach rather than the probable instant-death area.

I think it was the Jews. Basically because they were being slaughtered and then buried in mass graves.

The Jews were killed, the African-Americans were treated like dirt. That being said, there are two ways to look at this...

1: The Jews, because they were killed in slow, painful ways.

2: The African-Americans, because they lived as slaves all their lives; the Jews can't suffer for very long if they don't have much longer to live.

But one thing you have to remember (I'm not saying you surely didn't) is there are people still under slavery and/or torture to this day, all of different races, yes, including whites.

Human suffering and misery cannot be compared. We all bleed, we all feel terror and we all mourn loss.

I would say the Jews, and while I understand your point of view, you have to realize every race on this planet has been used as slave labor at some point in history, the blacks were just the last to experience it.

That's like comparing apples to oranges. Both suffered racism to the extreme. Both had people who died needlessly, be it gas chamber or hanging. Suffering is suffering.

Out of those two groups? Read up on the holocaust. Yes, slavery was awful, but it didn't attempt to exterminate an entire group,
Report as
Nope. I mean yes the blacks were punished, but the Jews were gassed, but forced to eat bread with glass inside of it. They were incinerated alive and their leftover fat was used as fuel for the other bodies. The Blacks did not suffer that much.

The Jews suffered cruelty, torture & mass murder. Slaves suffered bondage, cruelty and possible death. Both atrocious! Unfortunately, all races have suffered bondage, cruelty, torture & death at some point in the history of mankind. Our great shame!
