Many Muslim pupils resist Holocaust education, Dutch lawmakers hear
A number of Dutch schools refrain from teaching about the Holocaust because of resistance from Muslim pupils, teachers told lawmakers.
The centrist Christian Union party held a roundtable discussion about Holocaust education with teachers and other professionals Wednesday in parliament in The Hague, The Algemeen Dagblad daily reported.
"Holocaust survivor Bloeme Evers does not dare give guest lessons in some schools," Arie Slob, the party's parliamentary leader and a former history teacher, told the daily, describing the discussion. "I am horrified by this. It is unacceptable that 70 years after the Holocaust, anti-Semitism in the Netherlands is growing."
