20. It is more than sad, it is educational neglect.

You are right, there is a great deal of information to cover, however WW2 is still a pivotal event in World History and the Holocaust should certainly be a section of study during the unit on WW2. It is quite simple really.

WW2 as a consequence of the failings of the Treaty of Versailles and other Treaties.

The Rise of Hitler & the Third Reich in the context of social and economic upheaval in the 1920's and 1930's.

The Reich's use of antisemitism and the beginnings of expansion into the east.

The failure of European powers to stop the rise of the Nazis and American isolationism in the 1920's and 30's.

The War & The Final Solution.


Obviously there would be units on the Rise of Japan and expansionism in the Pacific as well, but the Holocaust was a central theme in the European theater of war.
