I think it's very important to keep these kinds of stories alive, and it hurts me to hear that some schools have taken the holocaust and Hitler out of their curriculum because it is too much for the kids to handle. It may be difficult to understand and to learn about but it is REAL! It is important to know our history otherwise we will for sure find ourselves in a world similar to that in 1984 by George Orwell. it isn't right to keep this kind of information locked away, and it especially isn't fair to all the Jewish families to have their past wiped away from school curriculum like it was nothing. This type of American behavior sickens me. People have a RIGHT to information, and that information should not be regulated to this extent-- sometimes I feel like I'm living in a Communist state.
