A goy asks about the meaning of the Shoah

I was reading the Old testament/Torah and realized that you use the same word from the Torah that refers to the expiratory killing of the lamb to talk about the Nazi Genocide. Since the Nazi Genocide was a traumatic historical event without any comparable precedent and as you use a jewish rite-related word to talk about it I was wondering if your community thinks of it in theological terms. Do you link the nazi genocide to some kind of eschatology? What does your rabbi say when you attend the synagogue over the days of the anniversary of the Shoah?
