    Since there is only one of these in the whole world, it'll be a little difficult to sell.

You can see this in a school textbook all you want but it doesn't sink home until you see it first hand.
    I would be opposed to it being a mandatory part of any curriculum. If students want to go there voluntarily, then fine.

    In any case, we need to stop treating that particular genocide as an isolated incident. It seems to be the only one that most people learn or know about, and I find that disturbing.

    I have visited Auschwitz/Birkenau. There are indeed 80,000 pairs of shoes in a warehouse that the prisoners called “Kanada”. Due to the rapid advance of the Red Army, this veritable mountain of shoes (remnants from the last Hungarian transports to Auschwitz) could not be sorted and shipped by rail to Germany.

    Everything from orthopedic shoes of the elderly to baby shoes. It is a shocking and extremely disturbing visage that physically strikes the heart like a hammer blow. The mind rebels at the realization that the enormity in front of your very eyes... is but a minute testament to the total horror of what actually transpired in this dark place.

    Everyone audibly gasps. Many openly weep. I excused myself and wretched.

    I hope the culprits get caught and sent to prison for a very long time.

    Only one? Are you kidding me?

    There are nine camps that are museums or memorials, and 11 monuments with and without the original buildlings in various countries. Of courses this is nothing compared to the 28 original concentration camps in Poland of which six were extermination camps. Then there are the numerous so called "work camps" in Germany and other countries.

    Yes a little premature but you have to understand 99.9 percent of the people that hate the Jews in Europe and would do this kind of thing are the ultra right skinheads Neo Nazis etc. I was thinking it could also be someone sympathetic to Ahmadinejad's denial of the holocaust.

    Lets just agree to disagree eh? Just because I think this kind of thing needs to be seen and absorbed doesn't mean it has to be treated as an isolated incident. BTW there were 6 of these extermination camps in Poland, hardly an isolated incident. And yes this kind of thing goes on in other parts of the world to this day. We need to expose them to the light of day also.

    Maybe because, next to Stalin and the victims of Communism, it was the worst persecution in History by what most believe to be one of the Anti-Christs or flat out most evil man to have walked the Earth. Not to mention, WWII accompanied it and that in itself is an entire learning experience.
