What if teaching the young how it never happened counts as educating them on the topic too?
If that's the case I support the motion of this brave hebrew group
 
I learned about the holocaust every fucking year in school. We watched schindler's list, read the diary of anne frank, and all the other shit about how they killed 6 million jews and gays and such.

I learned about 0 other genocides. Not even wounded knee or the trail of tears. Certainly nothing else from europe. Armenians? No, never happened. But we must remember the holocaust, always, forever.

If being a victim is a huge part of a culture's identity than get a new identity jesus fucking christ!

I remember when I took European History in high school a huge part of the Reconquista discussion was the expulsion of the small minority of Jews in Spain and not, you know, the hugely interesting process of the Spanish kicking out Muslims who had repressed them for hundreds of years or how the Muslims had treated the Jews and Catholics both like utter shit and the whole "uwu the Muslims were such nice rulers remember the Al-Andalus" narrative that pervaded historiography for years was being unraveled. I laugh at holocaust deniers every other day considering my field is history, but even I thought the expulsion of Jews should be a footnote considering how insane the Reconquista was.

What I find even more striking is how much fiction we had to read about the holocaust. We learned about a few other bad things in history (mostly trail of tears and slavery) but we didn't get hit over the head with fictional accounts meant to force us to put ourselves in the victims' shoes to nearly the same extent. We watched "Roots" in 8th grade (my history teacher was a weirdo, I gotta say) and read Huck Finn and To Kill a Mockingbird, but that was it as far as forced empathy with victims of bad shit in American history. For the Holocaust there was literally a novel or memoir every year from 5th grade on. Number the Stars, Night, Anne Frank, the play version of Anne Frank, the Painted Bird, some exceptional book about helping Jews ski to freedom in Norway, Maus, and that's not even mentioning the movies and TV specials...on and on. But what gets me is that assigning fiction really is assigning the reader to empathize with the protagonist, and it was only ever one type of protagonist that they forced that way. There wasn't a concerted campaign to get inside the heads of Russian soldiers or Indian farmers or any other group in that way. Weird.

I thought this was a given whenever a history class would get to WWII.

I remember taking a class Sophomore year focusing on genocides in history, not just the Holocaust. If that could be an option nationwide, then maybe they would be satisfied.

I also just realized that given my username, I should be one of the last people encouraging genocide education lol.
Can they also learn about the things the Empire of Japan did as well? They were just as bad, if not worse, than the Nazis.
I remember my history teacher going out of his way to spend a day teaching us about the Rape of Nanjing because he was disgusted that it only got a paragraph in the class textbook.

Uh oh wrong think detected: as Barack taught us the only bad part about the rape of nanjing was the US interrupting the japanese trying to be prosperous.

No, really, the fucker apologized for the US PROVOKING JAPAN in WW2.

Waiting for you to show up because we knew every other lolcow was a pale imitation of your glory, obviously.

Also the mods are pretty lighthanded here so you can talk about various shit without worrying too much about getting banned for wrongthink.

Why are you in the off topic articles and happenings forum talking about cows?

Uhh... what? If you don't like A&H why don't you go to someplace that isn't A&H?

I don't give a shit what @Visitor or you think the purpose of this site is. It's got an articles and happenings forum and I enjoy it. Plenty of other do. Also what is this "I'm not the one on the verge of being hala'd"? Also why are you throwing quotes from a random idiot from a month ago?

Second part is good bait but I'll let someone else go off about that part.

Don't tag me with this stupid shit. Try to have some courtesy to other users on this site for once, this forum is not a fucking ballpit for you to go around pissing in constantly. You're embarrassing.

I would have slapped their little yellow emperor until he apologized to me
That's why we need a man with testicles to run for president whenever Papa Trump is done pwning the libs
 
So you'd rather we not spend any time teaching kids about the Holocaust?
I would say the current time we spend teaching about the holocaust is already too much, like I said, I learned about the holocaust every year in school. I went to a holocaust museum, watched holocaust movies, read holocaust books.

I definitely think we should not increase the amount of teaching on the subject.

Do you think we shouldn't spend any time teaching kids about the other genocides that have happened? Oh look, now we can both put words in each other's mouth...
