This thesis examines the history of Holocaust Education through the examination of the Ontario curriculum from the 1960s to date. The analysis displays that as the events became further separated from memory more study took place in the classroom. The creation of academic works by leading historians also served to provide a platform for study. Numerous programs have also been generated with federal and provincial support in an effort to increase the study of the Holocaust in classrooms and in the community. The essay also examines moral and ethical challenges to studying the Holocaust as well as the varying influences that may be present for educators in an ever growing socially conscious society.
