UNRWA to teach Holocaust in Gaza

The United Nations Relief and Works Agency will teach about the Holocaust to students in Gaza secondary schools, according to John Ging, the UNRWA’s director of operations in Gaza.

Ging told the British newspaper the Independent that he was “confident and determined” that the Holocaust would be taught in a curriculum being developed by the organization that administers relief to Palestinian refugees.

“No human rights curriculum is complete without the inclusion of the facts of the Holocaust and its lessons,” Ging told the paper.

The statement comes after officials of Hamas, which controls Gaza, condemned the inclusion of the Holocaust in the curriculum. — jta
