How Not to Teach the Holocaust to Kids

Israeli kids don't need to be exposed to the Holocaust through the brutal images that featured at my American Jewish summer camp - but there's no avoiding the subject here either.

At age seven, I informed my parents that Abe Lincoln had tried to kill his own son. They disputed this alternate history, but when I insisted this was what I had been taught on my first day of Hebrew School, they called the principal to complain. It took a while until anyone made the Abraham connection.
