Guest: Alan Marcus, PhD, Associate Professor of Curriculum and Instruction, University of Connecticut, and Faculty Fellow at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum Earlier this month, Connecticut passed a law requiring public schools to teach students about the Holocaust and other genocides that have taken place. Legislators in more than a dozen other states are looking to sponsor similar legislation. Schools may soon need to rethink how they teach Holocaust history as the remaining survivors pass away.
