I'm really disappointed that someone posted this completely baseless article (dated April 2, no less). It's been well-refuted. To quote the source, which is Karen Pollock, Chief Executive of the Holocaust Educational Trust in London: "... There is one particular line relating to Holocaust education which has been the focus of the press and various alarmed emails. It features in the section addressing why teachers avoid teaching certain subjects and states: '. A history department in a northern city recently avoided selecting the Holocaust as a topic for GCSE coursework for fear of confronting anti-Semitic (sic) sentiment and Holocaust denial among some Muslim pupils'." Oh, and no one in Japan has mistaken a sheep for poodle, either, despite media reports to the contrary.
