    They have a point if she was spending too much time and resources on the holocaust, because it is one part of European history and not all of it. It's a small period of history of history regardless of what one thinks of it. It would be like a woman in Belgium originally from the Congo spending so much time on the Congo and the millions who died when it was a small portion of Belgian history. People do treat the holocaust in some religious manner as if they must preach and preach to Europeans, and others but they won't really bring up the Catholic or Slavic victims too often. There is a problem with how holocaust history is taught. It's from a mono-ethnic point of view and is not pluralistic and overfocusing on it in a history class entails an agenda, and a teacher is not supposed to be so overt with one. They have a point. It's not anti-Semitism. Imagine if someone originally Muslim spent a long time on the Crusades or Bosnia. It's not objective.
