Holocaust study to be compulsory for NSW students
ALL NSW students will be given mandatory lessons on the horrors of the Holocaust under sweeping changes to the school history curriculum. The Board of Studies has confirmed it will roll out a new syllabus that will include studies of the Jewish genocide during World War II. The changes, which will mirror compulsory Holocaust classes in most US states, the UK and many European countries, will come into effect from 2014. The Nazi mass slaughter of more than six million Jews, regarded as the darkest chapter of modern history, has only been available to students in Australia as an optional component in history classes. The Board of Studies will make it mandatory for all history students up to Year 10. "The Holocaust is now a mandatory inclusion in the Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority's history overview," a spokeswoman for the Board of Studies confirmed
