Perhaps break up the template by period?[edit]

The template, like the list of massacres of Jews, is very large. Would it be easier to use if it were broken down by time period, in alternating color bands? The first band could be from 1 through 1000 CE, perhaps, the second band from 1001 through 1600, the third band from 1601 through 1900, and then by decade after 1901, with a single band for the Holocaust? I think this could be done fairly easily by using group1, group2, etc. See Template:Navbox for additional information. If others are interested, I can draft a sandbox copy of what I'm proposing. — Malik Shabazz Talk/Stalk 02:25, 24 August 2017 (UTC)

Original research?[edit]

Where do you get these names from? Certainly not from the English Wikipedia: **[[Międzyrzec Podlaski Ghetto|Mezeritz D'Lita massacre]]. "Mezeritz D'Lita" is not mentioned in our Międzyrzec Podlaski Ghetto article even once. Please explain. What is the purpose of changing real placenames into their Yiddish equivalents?
It looks to me like this whole template is being turned by User:Gruzinim (296 edits) into a sort of political arm-wrestling, with gross exaggerations dressed up as "massacres of Jews" such as the 2015 Copenhagen shootings where a single Jewish security man (among its two victims including a non-Jewish filmmaker) was shot in a firefight by a Dutchman.

Yeah, I kind of regretted the "Massacre" title, it should have been titled "Pogroms targeting" Jews, as far as the Yiddish equivalent, I guess there is no real purpose other than to respect what the people who were killed called it. Usually they had their own name for the Shtetls or Towns, so it made more sense to call it by that name then by whatever it's called today, it was a work in progress, I will try to remove any that wouldn't fit. I'm definitely not trying to push an agenda, the main purpose was to sort through the pogroms/massacres that don't have specific Wikipedia pages for them. Gruzinim (talk) 21:24, 26 August 2017 (UTC)
