I do not believe that many European (or at least West European) Christians see Jews as Christ killers. They may of course teach that mankind in common betrayed Jesus (according to their beliefs), and that mankind had/have strayed away from God. Though most of us Europeans (at least Northwest Europeans) are secular, half religious or very liberal in relation to religion. Considering common elementary schools, they probably range from totally laic (that is non-religious) schools to schools slightly forming all children after the dominating local brand of Christianity. Then there are of course some Catholic, Evangelical, Jewish, Muslim etc. elementary schools, that may range from slightly religious schools to very religious schools. I do, however, believe that for example a young religious person becoming an elementary school teacher in order to form society in a Christian way, would prefer relatively cosy and happy Eastern stories and absolutely not hate stories. Other elementary school teachers would amuse the children with the rich secular traditions: painted eggs, chocolate eggs, Eastern hares, fairytale witches, going from door to door in witch dresses in order to get candy, coloured feathers on newly sprung out twigs, grass and leaks emerging from the bare soils of pots placed in the windows and so on. In the region I grew up in even big bonfires and fireworks, originally meant to scare bad spirits and witches away when you let the cattle out of the barns. In short, a celebration of the newborn nature. The other obvious fabrications of yours, I will let others comment ... To sum up: you will have to calibrate your perception of reality, both in concern to time and other aspects.
