Not sure where the two overlap.

On Mudcat it appears to be in some hinterland of mawkish nostalgia when even the sufferings of the past become a cause of a cosy feel-good sentimental glow. So Folklore = Lore o' the Folkies. I've lost count of the times I've opened up threads here with a genuine Folklore prefix only to have it pulled by some cretinous moderator secretly empowered to strike out anything that offends their prissy sensibilities.

One is reminded of those Horrible History books - only a matter of time (well a few gundred years anyway) before they do one on The Nasty Nazis or the Terrible Tories. I wonder, is the Holocaust Folklore too?
