Avital: Education the Answer to Arab Holocaust Denial
Member of Knesset Colette Avital responded Sunday to statistics showing that many Israeli Arabs deny the Holocaust. Avital said that the main cause of the worrisome statistics is the system of education.
Avital, who is the head of the Holocaust survivor’s lobby, said the Education Ministry must work to raise awareness of the Holocaust among Arab students. The ministry should begin a campaign to discuss Holocaust history in Arab schools, Avital said.
