Why Teach?

UNESCO asks the question:
“Why teach about the Holocaust”?

“What can be learned about preventing genocide and mass atrocities through study of the Holocaust and other Nazi crimes?”

“Other genocides have occurred after the Holocaust, on several continents. How can we draw better lessons from the past?”
