UK schools DO teach about the Holocaust

UK government acts on hoax e-mail:

The UK government is taking the unprecedented step of writing to every embassy to stop a false e-mail rumour about Holocaust teaching being banned.

A widely-circulated e-mail has falsely claimed that schools in the UK will stop teaching the Holocaust because it might cause offence to Muslims.

Schools Secretary Ed Balls says he wants to “put an end once and for all to the myth” spread by the e-mail. He says teaching the Holocaust remains “non-negotiable” in England.

This formal government rebuttal of a hoax e-mail has been prompted by a persistent rumour that “UK schools” are set to remove the Holocaust from the curriculum.
