It is a matter of history that when the Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces, General Dwight Eisenhower found the victims of the death camps, he ordered all possible photographs to be taken and for the German people from the surrounding villages to be ushered through the camps and even made to bury the dead. He did this he said, in words to this effect. 'Get it all on record now - get the films - get the witnesses - because somewhere down the track of history some ******* will get up and say that this never happened.'UPDATE: I've done a little digging myself (now I've had the time) And it seems that this email is causing quite a lot of controversy. There are several people out there rubbishing its contents. However there are also articles reporting on the dropping of this subject on the major news paper websites. These can be found if you google - Holocaust school curriculum. I think that the email may well be misleading because it says that "the UK removed the Holocaust from it's school curriculum". That's not exactly true, it has not been removed from the curriculum. However some schools have dropped this subject and the Crusades for fear of causing offence.

IN MEMORIAL This week, the UK removed the Holocaust from it's school curriculum because it 'offended' the Muslim population because they say it never occurred. This is a frightening portent of the fear that is gripping the world and how easy each country is giving into it. It is now more than 60 years since the 2nd. World War in Europe ended. This e-mail is being sent as a memorial chain, in memory of the 6 million Jews, 20 million Russians, 10 million Christians and 1,900 Catholic priests who were murdered, massacred, raped, starved, burned and humiliated while German and Russian people looked the other way! Now more than ever, with Iran among others, claiming the Holocaust to be a myth, it is imperative to make sure the world never forgets.
This e-mail is intended to reach 40 million people worldwide! Be a link in the memorial chain and help distribute this around the world. Don't just delete this, it will only take a minute to pass it on...
In my opinion, if it happened (which it did), then it is history and must be taught. Teachers should not be afraid of causing offence for teaching the truth.
