Let's not try to assign blame for tragedies.

I see a strong connection between Purim and the Shoah (Holocaust). Even the fact that ten men were hanged at the Nuremberg Trials for the Nazi crimes, just as Haman's ten sons were hanged, when ordinarily high-ranking officers would have been executed by firing squad instead. This connection was supposedly noted by one of the Nazis at the trial, too.
In the Megilla, where the ten sons of Haman are listed, three Hebrew letters are written in superscript- Tav, Shin, and Zeyin. Those three letter correspond to the Hebrew year of the Nuremberg trials/hanging of ten Nazis.
