Only nine states mandate Holocaust curriculum in schools

The title of this blog post is a quote from this news article: https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/study-shows-americans-are-forgetting-about-holocaust-n865396

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

In 1945, Sonia Klein walked out of Auschwitz. Every day of the 73 years since she has been haunted by the memory of what happened there, and the fate of the millions who never made it out of the Nazi death camps.

But Klein wonders, once she and the few survivors still alive are gone, who will be left to remember?

“We are not here forever,” said Klein, now 92. “Most of us are up in years, and if we’re not going to tell what happened, who will?”

Klein’s worries are borne out by a comprehensive study of Holocaust awareness released Thursday, Holocaust Remembrance Day, which suggests that Americans are doing just the opposite.

End

Oh no! Are people forgetting the Holocaust? Are young people being denied information about the Holocaust?

What can I blog about — if there is no more interest in the Holocaust?

  2. Peter Hardy wrote: “After a while the guy said, “dude, I don’t care. I was born in 1970.” ”

    A common reaction from people not wanting to talk about an inconvenient theory. Just a pretext. Very often, it shows that an individual is a coward, not an indifferent and uninterested person as claimed.

  3. I remember about four years ago talking to a co worker about the Kennedy assassination. After a while the guy said, “dude, I don’t care. I was born in 1970.”

    I realized I might as well have been talking about the assassination of Garfield or McKinley. Yes soon enough all things fade away in memory. I was not alive during World War 2 but I was inundated with propaganda from my elders who were. And I don’t inundate the younger people with it. In fact, I spend lots of time explaining that things like the Irish potato famine and the Trail of Tears and the German extermination of the Jews are all bull crap. Anyone who digs into any of this will find that they are all fables.
