Should Holocaust stories be required in public schools?

To read the answer to the question asked in the title of my blog post, go to this news article: https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/schindlers-list-reunion-behind-scenes-stories-mel-gibson-trauma-holocaust-should-be-taught-school-tr-1106706

The following quote gives the answer to the question in the title:

Begin quote

In response to a question about a recent survey that found a lack of knowledge about the Holocaust among millennials, Spielberg said, “It’s not a pre-requisite to graduate high school, as it should be. It should be part of the social science, social studies curriculum in every public high school in this country.”

He clarified that he wasn’t saying his movie should be taught in schools necessarily, but said, “these stories that Holocaust survivors have the courage to tell” should be on the curriculum.

End quote

I don’t agree that this subject should be taught in public schools in America. There is no place for religion in public schools. It is O.K. to teach the Holocaust in a Jewish school, but not in a public school. How would the Jews like it if Holocaust denial were taught in a public school?

When the Holocaust is taught anywhere, both sides of the story should be taught, not just the Jewish version of the story, or the Nazi version of the story.  Let the children decide which side they want to believe.

I know what you are going to say: “How can little children decide anything?” Little children should be taught to think for themselves, and not to take the side of anyone in a debate.
