We Must Remember the Atrocities
Do you think that six graders should learn about the Holocaust? The Holocaust was a very bad time for the Jewish people, they were taken away from their homes to be killed. Some people think that the time period was to harsh for sixth graders to learn about. Sixth graders should learn about the Holocaust because they are mature enough, learn about prejudice, and prevent it from happening again.

First, sixth grades are mature enough to learn about the Holocaust. sixth graders have knowledge about the world and current holocausts. This is reality and they are mature enough to learn about real life.

Next, it will give them awareness of prejudice. Which gives them tolerance. In a poem by Robert Fulghum it describes the crayons, in the end it says: "but they all have learned to live together in the same box". This shows that all different races live in one world.


Finally, it will prevent it fome happening in the future. In a lot of actions history repeats it self. Like when the World War II followed the Great War. The Great War was the name of World War I before World War II. This will help prevent further atrocities because they will know what happened.

Even though it was a harsh time it is important to learn about the Holocaust. Some parents think their kids should not lern this matter; however, kids will be the next leaders and will have to know this subject.
