Thank you for your note about Genocide and Holocaust course at the HS.
Please let me know details of where and how the course is conducted. I
want to approach the local HSs in my area (Fairfax County, Virginia
, USA) to show them that such courses are conducted, thus reinforcing my
demand that Polish Holocaust be included in the curriculum of History. I
have been banging on their doors with this demend for years.
