From jasper's afternoon post:
Sarkozy In Holocaust Memorial Row
French President Nicolas Sarkozy has defended his plan to make every 10-year-old schoolchild honour Jewish child victims of the Holocaust.
I wonder if the shooters at Columbine had had a better understanding of Hitler if they wouldn't have decided not to commit their murders/suicides on Hitler's birthday in some sort of weird sick tribute or better yet not commit them at all.
"We do not traumatise children by giving them the gift of the memory of the country," Mr Sarkozy. He was speaking after French teachers and historians said the plan was misconceived and could upset children.
Some 11,000 Jewish children in France were killed during the Nazi occupation during World War II.
"We must tell a child the truth," President Sarkozy said in the central French town of Perigueux.
"If you do not talk to them of this tragedy, then you should not be surprised if it repeats itself.
