The author, an instructor in Holocaust education, discusses how and why the manner in which the Holocaust is being taught in secular and Jewish classrooms is perpetuating old-fashioned antisemitism and self-hatred. She makes her argument by presenting a timeline of Holocaust education history, which began in the early 80s with lectures by survivors and scholars that were free and open to the public. his "public education" led to federal and local governments funding Holocaust education for schools at any grade level. In a number of schools, this education was not met with open arms, as many students and parents continued to deny the severity of the Holocaust. The author stresses that children must be taught about the tragedy before they start high school. Therefore, she offers a number of teaching methods that may prove effective for children, such as child-friendly novels, music, or even a South Park episode that gives a rather crude history lesson of Hitler and the Nazis.
