The New York Jewish Week covers the reaction to Sarkosy's proposal, which has been tweaked by his educational advisers.
The New York Times has run a number of stories related to Holocaust education in the past few days.
The lead story in yesterday's Arts section covers a "comic book" used in German schools. [Those who might be skeptical about the use of comic books for this subject should take a look at Maus one of the most powerful books on the topic.]
