And, let's keep in mind that Trump went out of his way to slurp Netenyahu and Israel, even going so far as to have the US Embassy moved to Jerusalem, now his cronies are pulling this abominable shit? Jewish-Americans should be outraged at what he's done.
    Did they not have a history class in your school?

    In my own history classes at school (in UK) we got nowhere near any 20th century events...school covered stuff like Spanish Armada, Napoleonic Wars. The American War of Independence was regarded as a fairly recent event...

    I suppose covering Second World War In school might have been regarded as unnecessary...it was recent enough that most people had family that had fought, and events were well covered in tv documentaries.

    The Trump Ad with the MiGs, those are also Russian troops based on the guns and equipment.


    Maybe John Bolton will disagree?

    Yes, we had history classes, I just don't remember if the Holocaust was taught. That was well over forty years ago for me.

    Oh, okay, lol.

    The way you phrased, I thought you meant something else.

    It was 20 years ago for me, and we certainly didn't skip it.

    Did slide right over the colonization of Africa, though

    I don't remember when it started, but we spent a lot of time learning about the Holocaust.

    We learned about the Holocaust through our Temple. It was not taught in public school in Florida. They spent a lot of time on the Civil War though, with talk about "States Rights".

    I learned about the Holocaust in fourth grade. We even watched the tv mini-series starring Meryl Streep. Of course, we also learned about it in Hebrew School. Maybe because there's such a large Jewish population in Brooklyn, where I went to school, there was a demand for it to be taught as early as kids could handle it.

Just like it wasn't smart of Trump to sit down for an interview with a reporter who helped bring down Richard Nixon, whoever told Dolt45 that doing a town hall was a good idea will soon have his head on a platter, if it isn't already. You can't tell me Trump wasn't furious after that shitshow ended because he'd been made to look like even more of a clown than he already is now.
    I really do think sometimes, that Trump doesn't really want a second term and is intentionally doing stuff to lose support.

    I have little memory of excatly what I was taught in school, just a few things here aand there. Everything that was important I learned on my own or in college.

    They taught us about the Holocaust when I was in high school during the 90s, even had a survivor speak to us. They barely touched the Japanese American camps though, except an English teacher who had us read a memoir.

    I remember it being taught(also Florida public school) but as kind of a foot note, like the majority of my last history class in high school being WW2 and maaaaybe spending a day or two talking about Anne Frank and that being about it on the Holocaust itself, mostly just about the battles themselves and Nagasaki/Hiroshima. WW2 was kind of the cut off point to for the most modern stuff we covered, maybe some very very condensed civil rights movement and Vietnam stuff at the end but absolutely nothing on anything past that(graduated in 2009 for reference).

    When I was in school, Vietnam wasn't history yet.

    God damn. I remember putting on a play for the Diary of Anne Frank in middle school. I can't imagine how you could teach modern history without a WW2 deep dive.
