Meeting a Moral Imperative: A Rationale for Teaching the Holocaust
Lindquist, David H.
Clearing House: A Journal of Educational Strategies, Issues and Ideas, v84 n1 p26-30 2011
A primary rationale for studying the Holocaust (Shoah) involves the opportunity to consider the moral implications that can be drawn from examining the event. Studying the Shoah forces students to consider what it means to be human and humane by examining the full continuum of individual behavior, from "ultimate evil" to "ultimate good". This article discusses several implications involved in studying the event, while proposing that a moral imperative exists for the presence of Holocaust education in contemporary classrooms.
