The Intellectual and Genocide
The phrase ‘betrayal of the intellectuals’ in regard to the Holocaust can be applied to those who subscribed to Nazi beliefs, defended them, or simply closed their eyes to Nazi atrocities, the most obvious examples being those who openly defended Nazism, such as the philosopher Heidegger. The phrase refers to the act of betrayal, which means being disloyal; it also implies either possessing knowledge or holding an office and disregarding the obligations that knowledge or office entails. The word ‘intellectual’ may broadly be applied to any person who has a certain rational capacity derived from training, and who follows a career that involves moulding public opinion, whether as writer, teacher or policy maker.
