A Horrible Time in History.
Are 6th graders to young to know what happened in the Holocaust? World War 2 was a terrifying time for Jews. 6 million Jews were killed by German Soldiers. Imagine yourself in World War Two with German Solders at your front door lying to you, telling you to go with them. 6th graders should learn about the Holocaust because they are mature enough, understand how prejudice this was, and to make sure it doesn't happen again.
My first reason is that 6th graders are mature enough to know about the Holocaust. They have enough knowledge to understand how Germans hated Jews. We understand most of the stuff around us, so we can understand this. It was reality, so we should learn about it because it happened one day. 6th graders are responsible and will be aware of what was happening in the world at that time.

Secondly Adolf Hitler was being prejudice. He didn't know the Jews in some country's, but still disliked them. They were human beings, but did he care? A Holocaust survivor, Maud Dahme said "Inside we are all the same". We might be different on the outside, but we are the same on the inside. In other words our hair, eyes, and etc. are different, but that doesn't make us different on the inside. We might like different things and fell different about stuff, but we are not that different. Adolf Hitler was not tolerance to peoples religion. Nazi's disliked people who where Jewish and they also said Jews were "unworthy of life".
My last reason that 6th graders should learn about the Holocaust is to prevent it from happening again. History repeats itself. People might forget what happened if we don't learn about it. George Santayana said "Those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it". Which means if we don't learn about it and our teacher just ignores it and don't teach it to us, then it will probably happen again. We are the group of people that will help improve the world in the future.
Do you think we're to young to know? Author of Devils Arithmetic Jane Yolen said, "There is no doubt that this is probably the greatest and most horrible single crime ever committed in the whole history of the world". I agree with this quote because it was a horrible crime. There are holocausts still going on this very second. 6th graders should learn about the Holocaust,so we know what happened and make sure it won't happen again.
