The United Kingdom
Has Removed Teaching About The Holocaust From Public Schools-Fiction!
Summary of the eRumor: The email says that the UK has
"removed The Holocaust from its school curriculum
The Truth: There has not been any
governmental decision to eliminate teaching about the holocaust from
schools in the UK.
This email may have been prompted by a government-funded study by the
Historical Association in the UK. It found that some teachers who
have multi-cultural classes have avoided teaching about controversial
historical topics such as The Holocaust. The report cited several
examples of schools that backed away from teaching about The Holocaust,
The Crusades, and slavery. "In particular settings, teachers
of history are unwilling to challenge highly contentious or charged
versions of history in which pupils are steeped at home, in their
community, or in a place of worship," the report said.
Another false story, a spinoff of this one, claims that the University of
Kentucky has taken the Holocaust out of its curriculum. CLICK HERE for that eRumor.
A real example of the eRumor as it has
appeared on the Internet:
this week, UK removed The Holocaust from its school curriculum because it "offended" the
Moslem population which claims it never occurred. This is a frightening portent of the fear
that is gripping the world and how easily each country is giving into
it. It is now more than 60 years after the
Second World War in Europeended. This e-mail is being sent as a memorial
