Default The Holocaust

Is it just me...or is learning about the Holocaust to ensure the world never forgets just a little too imposing and pervasive?

These are not the only people to have suffered atrocities. Currently, there is mass murder being committed against men, women, and children in Africa and people hardly bat an eye.

The history of slavery in this country and the atrocities committed against Native Americans is pretty much glossed over while learning about history in our government schools.

However, where the Holocaust is concernred, schoolkids receive in-depth coverage with a play-by-play of events, with the good guys and bad guys named...there is required reading and projects that have kids building models of concentration camps are assigned.

WTF?

I personally think the event should be remembered, but also put it into today's context and show similar things that are going in the world right now.

Agreed that it should be remembered. My problem is the way it's kinda shoved down our throats. Well, in government schools, at least.

If the so-called Jews want to instill in their children not to ever forget this horrible chapter in their history...Fine.

But don't shove it down every other kids' throat. Unless history teachers want to highlight everyone else's tragedies with the same zeal.

Should everyone else really give a shit about the Holocaust on the level that these people do? I know I don't.

When it comes to throat shoving, I like to be on the giving end and not receiving.

In my opinion children shouldn't bear any kind of knowledge of murder/rape ect until their brain has developed enough to comprehend critical thinking skills.


Educate/inform your child about the other side. There are books that allege the holocaust never occurred/ the death toll was fabricated.

Jesus was jewish allegedly, so I believe that is why the holocaust gets the acceptance that it does or people being so complacent about it. That and the money behind the advertisement of it ( movies,publications ect)

I know if native Americans controlled the banks and media, we would hear more about their suffering and conquest. It's all about who has the power.

That is plausible, but native american culture and beliefs are based up peace,love and harmony with the earth.

True that, my point isn't comparing cultures but showing that those who have the power write the history books.

When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace.

Excellent! Because they could be brainwashed into having more empathy and sympathy for one culture's so-called suffering over their own.

Yes! There is always another facet to what we are taught. The death toll, 6 million, or whatever the hell, could very well be an exaggeration. Then, of course, you have to inform your kids that holding these critical views might lead to them as being labeled as anti-Semitic. Anti-Semitism is another topic altogether.

It seems like every decade there is a film that either features or somehow alludes to the Holocaust.
