The Holocaust vs. 9/11: Which death would have been worse?
Would gas chambers be worse than being crushed, burned, or jumping to death in terms of pain?

The People being sent to German death camps suffered for weeks or months before death. Firstly they were forced into overcrowded Ghettos where few were allowed out so little food got in. Then at gun point you were forced onto trains crammed in so tightly there was no room to sit down and the trips took 2 or 3 days to the camp where you had to p!ss and sh!t in the cattle carriage amongst a crowd of men women and children. No food or water was given to them during the trip and then when they arrived at the camp the elderly, the weak and the children were separated for immediate gassing. Those chosen for gassing were made to strip naked and wait their turn in line in the snow. The rest were worked to death with no food for a couple weeks until they were too weak to work then killed when their usefulness was used up. Some lived the last few weeks of their lives starved and worked to death.
Compared to that the unfortunate people who did not escape the twin towers only suffered say 3 hours and most believed they would escape not realising the buildings would pancake to the ground, so for many they did not die in so much fear. I think I would have preferred death in the twin towers to death by the Germans which was weeks of hunger, humiliation, and hard work, being harassed by German soldiers all the time.

At some point, dead is dead.

The holocaust also starved people to death, shot them, threw them alive into mass graves.You cannot compare one death with another.

What a daft question! At least 9/11 was a surprise event foisted upon people who were just living their ordinary lives. The Holocaust was the culmination of an upsugre of longstanding abuse. Most of the people who died in the Holocaust weren't gassed. They were worked to death and or died of diseases such as diphtheria and cholera after being imprisoned in terrible conditions, and were very aware that the end goal was the very extermination of the memory that they'd ever been. The two situations are in no way comparable.
