    Gideon Sa'ar was at the recent Holocaust conference for educators around the world and he knows the issues discussed: "During the course of the conference, numerous questions were addressed, including: How should international organizations grapple with Holocaust denial? How should they respond to those who wish to diminish the Holocaust? Should visiting Holocaust-related sites be compulsory for high school students? Should educational authorities co-fund these trips? How do we teach about different historical contexts without a competition between the suffering of victims of different totalitarian regimes? How do we avoid falling into the pattern of always referring to the Jewish people as victims? By marking a few Holocaust memorial days over the course of the year, are we highlighting or diminishing its meaning?" Armenian Weekly Yossi Sarid was a better Minister of Education; at least he acknowledged the Armenian genocide. Turkey, btw, did not attend the conference because it was after the flotilla incident; Turkey, which still cannot reconcile with the Armenians. When you cannot feel the pain and suffering of each other, peace and reconciliation will never happen. Einstein warned about the dangers of nationalism when Israel was founded. Nationalism can only be replaced with international cooperation. I wonder how long that will take to happen.
