HOLOCAUST EDUCATION AND GENOCIDE PREVENTION

Thailand

Thailand

Thailand is part of the Asia group ., which includes India, China, Mongolia, Japan, the Korean peninsula, Southeast Asia and the Pacific islands. Australia and New Zealand, though geographically close, are treated separately because their history as European settler societies has led to unique implications with regard to understandings of the Holocaust.

THAILAND represents one of the countries in which many people have misconceptions about the Holocaust. In September 2011, students at a Thai Catholic school participated in a sports-day parade dressed in Nazi attire, according to observers, apparently unaware of the implications of such action.

If you have more information on Holocaust education in Thailand, please indicate this in the COMMENTS section below.
