This is a thorny issue that boils down to the nature of objectivity:

Does it mean choosing the strongest, accurate phrase accepted by expert authorities—here, historians—even if that means using extremely charged language that upsets and offends good-faith critics?

Conversely, can using language that artificially anesthesizes the shock of the object that it describes through euphemism be truly called objective?

Euphemism isn’t objectivity; objectively means finding the strongest, most accurate language or it means nothing.
