I think that the difference between Hitler and other mass-murdering
despots like Stalin, Mao, and Pol Pot is that Hitler was the only one
to go beyond the borders of his own state to seek out and destroy an
entire race. Stalin murdered on a vast scale also. But he didn't
invade neighboring countries to go get his victims. Same with Mao.
Same with Pol Pot. They all acted with unspeakable evil. But Hitler
added that little twist of eugenics that made it all the more

That's why he's more infamous. He's uniquely demonized because his
program was uniquely demonic.
