UNESCO is in the process of taking steps to encourage the classroom teaching of the
Holocaust in all parts of the world. Its first step was to commission a study by the
Georg Eckert Institute for International Textbook Research in Braunschweig. This
analysis compared the study of the Holocaust in school textbooks and national
curricula in 135 nation states.
The information was collected in the 18 months to December 2013 and the results
published in a substantial report in 2015.
