HOLOCAUST MUSEUM DISAVOWS E-MAIL ON CESSATION OF HOLOCAUST EDUCATION IN THE UNITED KINGDOM
Recently, an erroneous e-mail has been circulating claiming that Holocaust education is being discontinued in the United Kingdom’s public schools. The e-mail contains the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum’s logo. The author(s) circulated the message without the Museum’s knowledge or consent. The claim is refuted by the Holocaust Educational Trust, the organization that led the effort to mandate Holocaust education in schools throughout the United Kingdom.
