There is an interesting discussion, which, in fact, was prompted by a posting on this blog about education on the Holocaust in Germany. Elke, who attended school in the 1970s, contends that the notion that German students were inundated with teachings about the Holocaust and with pictures of corpses etc. is a myth., i.e. not true.
This confirms my recollections of trips to Germany where I visited schools and spoke with school officials. In fact, early in the 1980s I visited the school in Dachau [the town of] and learned about their aggressive Holocaust education program.
In contrast, we visited other areas where there were virtually no such programs and had conversations with former students who felt that they had really learned little about it.
