After claiming that educating students attending UNRWA-run schools in the Gaza Strip was “a crime against the issue of the refugees that is aimed at cancelling their right of return,” the Refugees Affairs Department of Hamas has reinforced its opposition to teaching the subject.

UNRWA is the acronym for United Nations Relief and Works Agency, for Palestine Refugees in the Near East

The reinforcement of its stance came on October 17th came after unconfirmed Arab media outlets released news that UNRWA was planning to re-introduce Holocaust education into the curriculum of its schools.

Hamas says their children don’t need to learn about the Holocaust, but, "Rather, they need to be re-taught the history and geography of Palestine as a basic subject. The children are entitled to learn about the massacres perpetrated by the Zionist enemy against the Palestinians since the Nakba."

A number of UNRWA teachers in Jordan also came forward this week to strongly voice their desire not to teach the Holocaust.
