Education on the Holocaust

Should all youth learn about the holocaust? I think they should. Why? Well, because so it won't happen again, to avoid prejudice, and maturity. Like George Santayana said, "Those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it." That means that if you ignore history you are bound to have it come back because you never learned how to stop it. Imagine six million Jew dying. Kids our age were being killed. So why can't kids our age learn about it now? That's why sixth graders should learn about the Holocaust because they have the maturity, they shouldn't be prejudice, and they know it's a part of history..

When you have the maturity you should learn about the Holocaust. First of all because it's a part of history. Second of all because it teaches the youth good lessons. Some people like to make bad choices. When you hear about this I think that you learn how to make better choices. We wouldn't want to have another kind of "Holocaust". That's why when you're mature enough you should learn about that time.

Another reason why you should learn about the Holocaust is to avoid prejudice. Prejudice means to pre judge. So you should always give a person three chances. The third time is when you know what type of a person they are. From learning about the Holocaust we can hopefully relay messages of non discrimination and empathy. Also, everyone is different so they shouldn't go and make fun of someone because they are different. One more thing is that nobody's perfect. If some one has a broken leg you shouldn't make fun of them because of that. They also shouldn't make fun of people who are migits because if they are different then who is the same?

Like what George Santayana said, "Those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it. You can't let history repeat it self. The Holocaust was a rough period of time. If that were to happen again we would all be doomed. There were things that only the people who lived it could imagine. A person who came and visited us said, "The Holocaust haunts me still, today". That's how rough it was for them. We are all lucky that there are people here to carry the memory. Soon we won't. That's when we have to keep the memory alive. To make sure history won't repeat itself.

The youth learning about the Holocaust is a great idea because maturity has caught up to them, prejudice shouldn't happen again, and so history won't repeat itself. The holocaust is part of world history and more importantly it will teach the youth good lessons. Hopefully, we never have the Holocaust come back. From learning about the holocaust we can hopefully relay messages of non discrimination and empathy. If they don't teach our youth now, then when?
