Florida recently became the 19th state to mandate Holocaust education. The educational standards that will become the curriculum will be finalized this week. This is important and must be praised. However, if the curriculum does not properly define the Holocaust and instead chooses to universalize the Nazi’s War on the Jews, this will all be in vain. Holocaust education must not be placed on the altar of critical race theory or used as a mere tool to teach the perils of xenophobia.
