I thought I had never actually read any fiction which made gobsmackingly inappropriate use of the Holocaust, and then while talking with [livejournal.com profile] rushthatspeaks I remembered John Meaney's "The Swastika Bomb," a fast-paced spy thriller with a witty English hero in which the Holocaust is carried out with biological weapons of a type which canonically ensure there are no survivors, or at least not in any form that would ever be sentient or even recognizable as human again. I don't believe the alternate history affected the plot at all; its sole purpose, as far as I could tell, was to make the Holocaust worse. It's one of the few stories I've ever read and wondered, for non-stylistic reasons, why the hell it was ever published.
