Michigan expected to approve curricula for Holocaust and Armenia Genocide in January

The Michigan Governor’s Genocide Studies Council is expected to approves curricula for the Holocaust and the Armenia Genocide at its Jan. 9 meeting at the Holocaust Memorial Center in Farmington Hills, Council Coordinator Judith Kovach told the Daily Tribune

Education about the extermination of 6 million Jews during World War II and Armenian Genocide from 1915 to 1917 was required in Michigan schools beginning in September under a new state law though a formal lesson plan wasn’t approved, Kovach explained.

She said that besides the Holocaust and the Armenian Genocide, the council ultimately wants to develop curriculum for  Holodomor, genocides in Rwanda, Cambodia and Bosnia. The council has a termination date of next August, but Kovach said members plan to continue through another mechanism, perhaps as a nonprofit organization.
