Teaching about the Holocaust in Less Impacted Countries
van Driel, Barry
Multicultural Education Review, v8 n1 p14-26 2016
This paper examines reasons for teaching about the Holocaust in countries only marginally impacted by these events. Against the backdrop of a recent global study showing that anti-Semitism is still quite pervasive around the globe, an attempt is made to show in what ways teaching about the Holocaust can affect attitudes of young people toward minorities, and the extent to which such education can make young people more accepting of diversity. Special attention is devoted to the findings in the global study relating to South Korea, which revealed that attitudes in this country can be construed as being much more anti-Semitic than in neighboring countries.
