41. You don't think young Palestinians should learn about the Holocaust?
I'm not sure how being ignorant of that major historic tragedy would be preferable to being aware of it. Especially considering the relationship between that event and the history of the region.

Many Palestinians have a solid understanding about the Holocaust but certainly do not take that understanding to mean that they are supposed to live without rights.

Whatever vision you have for an eventual peaceful resolution to this conflict, I think that Israelis and Palestinians would be wise to learn as much about one another as possible. This would go a long ways towards making that eventual peace real and lasting in my opinion.
