Reconceptualising the Holocaust and Holocaust Education in Countries that Escaped Nazi Occupation: A Scottish Perspective
Cowan, Paula
Intercultural Education, v24 n1-2 p167-179 2013
Prior to the establishment of a national Holocaust Memorial Day in 2001, the Holocaust was not part of Scotland's historical narrative and its teaching was marginal in Scotland. This article examines Scotland's connections with the Holocaust and reflects on the impact that the history of the Holocaust has had on Scotland. Investigating Holocaust education from the perspective of a country that has no obvious connections with the Holocaust can perhaps assist other countries with similar connections, and can lead to consideration of ways in which their social and historical contexts can contribute to a meaningful integration of the Holocaust into their educational programmes. The article discusses how Holocaust education has been integrated into schools and community programmes in Scotland. It also considers what contemporary policies, practices and priorities align well with a potential deeper integration of Holocaust education. (Contains 4 notes.)
