Germans “tired of learning about Holocaust”

German students are complaining of “Holocaust fatigue”, according to a report on JPOST, a situation in which they believe they have heard enough about the actions of their parents and grandparents.

In recent surveys conducted in Germany, the general mood reflected a belief by most school aged students that they “now know everything there is to know” about the Holocaust and are tired of hearing about it.

Likewise, despite a continuing rise in anti-Semitism in Germany, most students indicated they no longer wished education on anti-Semitism to be part of their curriculum.

The New York Times is running a similar and detailed piece, entitled “Too Much of a Bad Thing?“, covering declining desires in audiences to watch documentaries relating to the Holocaust.
