Should Holocaust study be mandatory in American schools?

Filed under: Holocaust — furtherglory @ 5:04 pm

Holocaust study should not be mandatory in American schools. The Holocaust did not happen in America and it was not perpetrated by Americans.

It is O.K. for Jewish schools to teach the Holocaust, but not for public schools in America to teach it.

You can read about this in this news article: https://www.timesofisrael.com/holocaust-studies-made-mandatory-in-kentucky-after-push-by-catholic-teacher/

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

Fred Whitaker, a science, religion and Holocaust studies teacher at St. Francis of Assisi School in Louisville – a Catholic middle school – has been lobbying for mandatory Holocaust instruction for 13 years. He has involved his students in the process, bringing them to the capital, Frankfort, to testify before House and Senate committees on how Holocaust instruction has affected their lives, the Jewish Louisville Community reported.

Other St. Francis parents and students have worked the phones and social media and stood on the capitol steps with signs in what became a full-court press for passage, according to the report.

The reason that the Holocaust should not be taught in public schools is that there are two different versions of the Holocaust — the version told by the Jews and the version told by Holocaust deniers.

“a veteran Holocaust denier”

The title of my blog post today is a short quote from a news article which you can read in full at  https://www.algemeiner.com/2018/03/20/veteran-holocaust-denier-david-irvings-tour-of-nazi-extermination-sites-may-run-foul-of-controversial-polish-legislation/#

Exactly what is a VETERAN Holocaust denier. How many years does one have to deny the Holocaust before they become a VETERAN denier. I have heard David Irving speak several times, and it was only recently that he said anything about the Holocaust.

David Irving is a very handsome man, with a large head. He should be noted for being a handsome man and for being an expert on history. He has only recently become a Holocaust denier, and he should not be noted for that. Holocaust deniers are a dime a dozen.

The following quote is from the newspaper article:

Begin quote

Poland’s widely-criticized new legislation regulating the commemoration of the Nazi Holocaust is facing an unexpected challenge with an impending tour of death camp sites that is being led by a veteran Holocaust denier.

National newspaper Rzeczpospolita reported on Tuesday that British convicted Holocaust denier David Irving intends to lead a tour of World War II landmarks in September 2018 which includes extensive stops at Holocaust sites in Poland.

Irving has conducted these and similar tours for his followers and admirers for nearly a decade — the forthcoming visit, however, would be his first since Poland passed a controversial amendment to its existing Holocaust commemoration legislation on Feb 6. Public discussion of wartime antisemitism and collusion with the Nazis among Poles is now a criminal risk, which carries a maximum prison sentence of three years.
