Jacob Bronowski's "The Acent of Man: Knowledge or Certainty" should be required viewing/reading in Science classes.

Hopefully the teacher can follow up with a survivor of Chairman Mao purge of counterrevolutionaries in the 50s and 60s which took the lives of millions.

It would be further edifying if the students now heard from a survivor of the Gaza death camp, in order that they might gain insight into the appalling ironies that abound in human history. The true horror of the Holocaust is that it was in no way unique. This country was founded on a much more successful genocide. I hope that the students are learning about that, as well. The only way to prevent future genocides is to recognize the universal human tendency to demonize the "other."
A study of the Nuremberg trials would be an excellent lesson, given that the USA is now in violation of every one of the Nuremberg protocols.
