Should the holocaust be a mandatory topic in school?

iramski

There are so many lessons to be learnt from the Holocaust - good, bad, and way beyond ugly. How did it get to that stage? What drove the offenders, and what drove the rescuers? How do we ensure that, if something similar should arise, that we will never, ever remain bystanders?
