The Legacy of Nazism and the History Curriculum in the East German Secondary Schools.
Wegner, Gregory P.
History Teacher, v25 n4 p471-87 Aug 1992
Examines the Marxist-Leninist curriculum assumptions about history instruction in East German schools on the legacy of Nazism. Suggests that questions raised to legitimize history instruction for East German students are relevant for students in capitalist countries. Discusses Hitler's rise to power, Soviet contributions to defeat fascism, concentration camps, and the formulation of heroes. (DK)
