Schools drop Holocaust lessons fearing offence
My Dad just sent this to me. I can understand what the teachers mean, most of my teachers felt (and still feel) uncomfortable discussing the Holocaust and Auschwitz with me in the class.
But that's precisely it, children should learn about these horrors, know what happened. Knowledge is power, ignorance equals stupidity; for God's sakes, Socrates said it!
We don't hush about the Spanish Conquistadors and their Mayan and Aztech genocide. We don't skip the Vietnam Wars or the Russian Revolution. This. is. History.
And people should learn it.
