I don't know whether it was my mail that set off this "difference between
Stalin and Hitler" message -- I am sorry if it gave the impression that I
thought Stalin was more benign. I do not think so at all -- they were
certainly equivalent from a moral point of view. Perhpas the difference was
that Hitler wanted to kill specific groups like Jews, gypsies, or whoever
had his favour, while Stalin was more indiscriminate and was ready to get
rid of anybody, but not so specifically.
