    I should hope not.  If they do, they should add it to another course of study.  How can we learn from the mistakes of the past if we don't study them? If we ignore them, do they go away?  Can we pretend it never happened?

    I doubt it, what gives you that idea, the last news I found on the matter was dated Nov 07 2008/Times online:
    Every secondary school is to get a Holocaust specialist to ensure that the subject is taught comprehensively and sensitively.

    One teacher from every school will be offered a place on a Holocaust education training course to combat racism and intolerance.

    One in ten of those who take the course will also be able to take a master’s degree module in Holocaust education, as part of a £1.5 million scheme run by the Institute of Education.

    Teachers will discuss parts of the subject that they find difficult to teach and work on lesson plans with experts on how to broach the issue.
