    Lol, it doesn't take much to have a better dynamic than their respective parents. As far as culture is concerned, Sarada is not raised as an Uchiha. She just has the sharingan, but she feels...

    The Uchihas were victims of genocide. That's all I can think of in terms of their similarity to Jews during the Holocaust.
