The word holocaust can also be used as a general term for any overwhelmingly massive deliberate loss of life, such as that which would result from nuclear war, hence the phrase "Nuclear Holocaust".

 A New Cloth
The predominant Christian theological response to the Holocaust has been to revisit Christology; to protect Jesus from the all-too-obvious realisation that death and evil were not defeated at the cross and the Messianic prophecies of the Hebrew Scriptures have not been fulfilled in Christ.
The Vatican II statements were highly politicised and failed to acknowledge the Church’s complicity in the Holocaust or recognise the State of Israel, yet they opened the doors for Catholic theologians (and others) to develop their theologies in terms of Christian-Jewish relations.
The Holocaust stood alongside the agony of Job and the suffering of Jesus on the cross is not to be seen as propitiation or sacrifice for sin but a witness that cries out against the doctrine of divine retribution.

 The Holocaust - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Early elements of the Holocaust include the Kristallnacht pogrom of November 8, 1938 and November 9, 1938 and the T-4 Euthanasia Program, leading to the later use of killing squads and extermination camps in a massive and centrally organized effort to exterminate every possible member of the populations targeted by Adolf Hitler and the Nazis.
The Holocaust was geographically widespread and systematically conducted in virtually all areas of Nazi-occupied territory, where Jews and other victims were targeted in what are now 35 separate European countries, and sent to labor camps in some countries or extermination camps in others.
The victims of the Holocaust were generally described by the Nazis as "undesirables," "enemies of the state", "asocial elements," and "moral degenerates," labels that went hand-in-hand with their term Untermensch ("sub-human").

 De Clarke's Personal Opinion (isn't bisque beautiful?)
Thus the Holocaust and Israel were a summons to Jewish survival and continuity, though the summons and the reasons for that effort were grounded in the historical moment.
It is important to remember that with all its difficulties, Holocaust theology arrived as a subversive and controversial theology, for the most part opposed by Jewish leadership, and took the community by force because it spoke to the needs of the community in a time of crisis.
That Jews could emerge from the Holocaust with power and use that power to dislocate and destroy in ways once used against Jews, and that a Jewish state would arise that did not respond to their theological insistence on Jewish innocence, was unthinkable to the major Jewish Holocaust theologians.

 Theology Today - Vol 43, No. 1 - April 1986 - ARTICLE - Worship Between the Holocausts
To speak of the nuclear holocaust as a symbol which is anticipatory is not to attempt to tame the threat by holding it at bay as something yet to be realized.
Worship between the holocausts, if it is to be an authentic Christian response, needs to recover and make room for a rebirth of the central image of the dead Christ and the descent into hell, as well as an authentic sense of the apocalyptic.
To allow the two-fold holocaust to shape contemporary liturgy is to give full voice to the experience of the absence of God, yet of a God who is needed and whose coming is hoped for.

 THE HOLOCAUST
For Arthur Cohen the Holocaust as the tremendum erased the conventional image of God as an interventionist in human history and attempts to fashion a new image of God in which human freedom and rationality are recognized.
Intimately related to the question of God in post-Holocaust theology is the issue of election and covenant, and in connection with it, of the relationship between Israel and the church.
There is now "the Holocaust cult": The Holocaust with its dogma of survival at any cost has replaced the Jewish faith in God and functions as "civil Judaism;" it has a cult in the observance of Yom Hashoah; it erects shrines and museums; and it has its own priesthood.

 Holocaust theology - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
"Holocaust theology" is also referred to as "theology nach Auschwitz" ("after Auschwitz" in German), due to the common practice of using "Auschwitz" as a shorthand for the Holocaust as a whole.
The Holocaust victims are not seen as personally deserving of such suffering, but as "sacrificial lambs" (so to speak) on whom the final measure of the curse was poured out.

 Judaism FAQs
Process Theology has been adopted by a number of religious thinkers as a way in between the supernaturalism of classical theism, and the naturalism of classical Reconstructionist theology.
While process theology first was adopted by some liberal Protestant Christians, it soon influenced a number of Jewish theologians, including Rabbis Max Kaddushin, Milton Steinberg and Levi A. Olan, and to a lesser degree, Abraham Joshua Heschel.
This book offers an interpretation of the basic concepts of process philosophy and outlines a process theology based on it that will be especially useful for students of theology, teachers, ministers, and those interested in theological trends.

 Revising Night: Elie Wiesel and the Hazards of Holocaust Theology by Peter Manseau
On the other we have the likes of David Irving, Michael Hoffman, Robert Faurisson—the kind of historians-on-the-side who assert that Zyklon B was merely a pesticide, that the number of Jews murdered was actually far less than is contended, that anyway they died of typhus, and that, really, nothing much happened at all.
The second possible response is the "polemical"—a strategy of blaming rival theologies for not holding true to their spirit; asking Christians why they do not act like Christ.
Seidman's brand of Holocaust revisionism is more deadly than Holocaust denial," one of the letters said, "it is a corrosive poison that destroys from within." Even to research Holocaust theology, apparently, is to court revisionism—or, at least, to appear to do so.

 AAR Books
This work examines the significance of "Israel" for Christianity in the pre-Holocaust theology of Karl Barth, and the post-holocaust theologies developed by Jurgen Moltmann and Paul van Buren.
Concluding that Barth's "radical traditionalism" is an unsuitable basis for developing a post-Holocaust theology, the author turns to more promising work expressed by the "messianic theology" of Moltmann and the "radical theology" of van Buren.
The book then distinguishes the work of Moltmann and van Buren from the work known as Holocaust theology, and places their work in the light of both the Reformed tradition and the revision of Christian doctrine after Auschwitz.

 Why The Holocaust Must Be Questioned
Your assertion that "holocaust deniers" have the burden of proving that the holocaust did not occur is the same as demanding that someone prove a negative.
In essence, the theology of the holocaust demands that the world accept unconditionally that the Germans constructed nothing less than "Death Factories" which they used to both murder and incinerate millions of people.
It is the belief in the holocaust, that provides the "moral cover," the "automatic absolution," for zionist atrocities committed against whoever happens to get in their way.
