UNRWA afraid that Holocaust education will 'confuse' 'Palestinian' childrenThe UNRWA workers' union is adamantly opposed to teaching 'Palestinian' children about the Holocaust because it will 'confuse' them.
The following is the article in the official PA daily:[Emphasis mine]. We can't let the 'Palestinians' know that other people suffer in the World also, can we? After all, that would ruin their victimization meme.Headline: "The [UNRWA Workers'] Union emphasized its opposition to teaching the Holocaust of the Jews as part of the curriculum in the [UNRWA] Agency's schools..."
"The [UNRWA] Workers' Union emphasized its adamant opposition to teaching the Holocaust of the Jews within the educational curriculum of UNRWA schools, as part of the topic of human rights. The union said, 'We emphasize our adamant opposition to confusing the thinking of our students' by means of Holocaust studies in the human rights study curriculum, and emphasize study of the history of Palestine and the acts of massacre which have been carried out against Palestinians, the most recent of which was the war against Gaza.'
[Union chairman, Suheil] Al-Hindi, explained to France Press, that UNRWA 'approved teaching the Holocaust...' but [the teaching] has not yet started."

And the 'international community' continues to support this tripe?
