Holocaust Remembrance Day


Did your children's schools learn about the Holocaust? Do they at any point in the school year? Do you have have family members who were survivors (or not) of the Holocaust?

We are Hasidic so yes, my children learn about it. My grandparents from both sides were survivors. They all lost their entire families. My maternal grandmother had one surviving sister but she died in 1957. Hasidic communities in the US were founded by Holocaust survivors. It's something we will never forget and why we continue to practice our religion the way it was in the alter heim.

My child attends catholic school and they did discuss it today as best they can for little kids. My family had two relatives die in WW2 fighting in Germany but none killed in any camps.

My children aren't in grade school yet but they will learn about the Holocaust. Usually they start learning at higher grades.

Yep. I don't know if they learned anything today specifically but they do learn about the Holocaust. We visited the museum in DC too. It brought tears to my eyes.

My children have learned about the Holocaust. I would be very disappointed to learn they hadn't.
