False E-Mail Claims UK Has Ended Holocaust Education

  • March 19, 2009

A much circulated rumor claims that the United Kingdom has "removed the Holocaust from its school curriculum because it 'offended' the Moslem population."

This false information, which began circulating via e-mail in April 2007, recently resurfaced in an e-mail slide show on the importance of remembering the Holocaust.

In fact, Holocaust education is mandatory in British schools and continues to be part of the national curriculum.
