HOLOCAUST EDUCATION AND GENOCIDE PREVENTION

South Sudan

South Sudan

South Sudan is in Sub-Saharan Africa . This region includes those states on the continent that are roughly south of the Saharan desert. These states are grouped together because of their common history of colonial domination, a history that influences the view of European history in general. Also, in these states, Muslims are not the majority population, or if they are, they are a slight majority, as in Nigeria, and thus there is a different level of engagement with the Holocaust than in North Africa.

There is currently no information on the teaching of the Holocaust in South Sudan.  However, on December 20, 2011, the President of South Sudan Salva Kir visited Yad Vashem during an official trip to Israel accompanied by four South Sudanese government ministers. Please see the link to Yad Vashem  for more information.
