Oregon bill would require Holocaust education

Rep. Pam Marsh, D-Ashland, is among 29 sponsors of a bill that would mandate education on genocide — with particular emphasis on the Holocaust — in public schools.

If passed, it would take effect July 2020, with the Oregon Department of Education providing school districts with technical assistance to implement the curriculum.

The instruction requirements are multifaceted. School districts would be required to “enable students to evaluate the morality of the Holocaust, genocide and similar acts of mass violence and to reflect on the causes of related historical events,” as well as “enable students to understand the ramifications of prejudice, racism and stereotyping.”

Other instruction requirements would “provide students with a foundation for examining the history of discrimination in this state; and explore the various mechanisms of transitional and restorative justice that helps humanity move forward in the aftermath of genocide.”
