The paper aims to offer answers to the following questions: "Does banal evil exist in our world today?", "Was the Holocaust a unique event?", "Who might tend to become a murderer?". The author concludes that banal evil exists at the present time and also states the conditions of its existence and prevention. Furthermore, the author substantiates the repeatability of holocaust and, as a consequence, its non-unique character. The author comes also to the conclusion, that anyone can become a murderer, even if he does not personally commit a killing. The contribution of the thesis is to set up an integral vision on the theory of banal evil, along with a supplementary analysis of the Holocaust from this theoretical perspective. The paper also intends to establish a new conception of the Holocaust, and its perpetrators as rationally acting individuals.
