Doesn't the Holocaust prove that God does not exist?

We can apply this argument to anything violent that happens whether it is the Holocaust or someone going postal in a school, mall or workplace. The problem with the logic is that God didn’t pull the trigger. A person did. In the case of the Holocaust, it was a group of people. Hitler & his advisors decided to implement the final solution & ordered soldiers to pull the trigger or push the lever to generate poisonous gas. The soldiers also made the decision to comply with the order making them share the guilt of these crimes as well.  God gives us the ability to make our own decisions, but that doesn’t mean we always do the right thing. Some of our decisions are bad ones or may even be outright evil.
