How did teachers handle the topic of the holocaust after the end of the war?

The Holocaust was not widely taught in schools till after 1980 and it was certainly not taught in the immediate postwar period. From the end of World War 2 till the late 1960s the Holocaust was something of a non-subject apart from media reports on Holocaust trials.


Is the Holocaust still taught in British schools?

No. The Holocaust is today part of every child's formal education in England. In England, by law children are to be taught about the Holocaust as part of the Key Stage 3 History curriculum. This usually occurs in Year 9 (age 13-14). While academy schools do not have to follow this syllabus, it is assumed that they will deliver Holocaust education as part of a "balanced and broadly based" curriculum. Similarly, although independent schools are not obliged to deliver the National Curriculum, many in fact do. The Holocaust is not formally part of the national curriculum in Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland. However, it is widely taught and there is no evidence that it has been removed from textbooks.

What effect did the American government have on the Holocaust and how did America contribute?

The American government had no direct effect on the Holocaust. Obviously, the defeat of Nazi Germany by the Allies ended the genocide. I wonder if you are mistakenly equating the Holocaust with World War 2.

Do British schools teach about the American Revolution?

I am 15 and attend a British school. I have not been taught about the American revolution at any point. We have mainly been taught about British history such as the Victorians. I think that because there have been so many wars in Britain we are generally taught the ones that are most well know such as World War 1.
