How should the Holocaust be taught?

Holocaust is being taught in American classroom

A news article, which you can read here, tells about how the Holocaust should be taught to American students today: http://www.journalgazette.net/news/local/schools/20171009/teacher-gets-new-lessons-on-holocaust

Do you see something wrong in the photo at the top of the page? All of the students are people of color. Do these students have any sympathy for the Jews? I think not.  These students think of themselves as people who are treated badly; they have no sympathy for the rich Jews who were Holocausted many years ago.

These students should be taught that the Jews were Holocausted because they were lying, cheating and stealing, and the Germans were fed up with them.

It’s is short for it is or it has

There has been a discussion recently on my blog about the use of the word it’s. One of my blog readers wrote: “Next “hateful” comment: an ambulance would be on it’s way — its, not it’s.”

I looked it up and found this website which explains the difference between the use of these two words:

The following was copied from the website above:

It’s and Its

There is often confusion between its and it’s. If you delve deeper into this issue, you will see that there is good reason for the confusion. However, if you just want to know what is right, the matter is very simple.

It’s

It’s is short for it is or it has. This is a 100% rule. It cannot be used for anything else.

“unimaginable” suffering at Auschwitz

Railroad tracks going inside Auschwitz-Birkenau camp

I copied this photo from the news article linked to above.

When I saw this excellent photo, I just had to blog about it. The photo shows the railroad tracks that enter the Auschwitz-Birkenau camp and extend all the way to the far end of the camp. It is hard to get a photo like this because there are now thousands of tourists walking down these tracks.

I took the photo above on one of my trips to Auschwitz-Birkenau.
