Oy Gevalt ! India may be a relatively poor country with vast discrepancies in wealth nearly one third of its population shitting in the open (but 85 percent having mobiles ) but one thing India DOES NOT HAVE is HOLOCAUST GUILT .No one knows or cares what happened (or did not happen) to Jews 70 odd years ago Indians surprisingly believe that World War 1 was a HUMAN as opposed to JEWISH tragedy
BUT THATS ABOUT TO CHANGE IF THE CHOSEN ONES CAN DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT
The Jewish state has decided to expose educators from different countries to Holocaust studies for the very first time. A group of 20 principals and teachers from India, Australia and Singapore have already arrived in Israel and are specializing at Yad Vashem’s International School for Holocaust Studies. Groups of educators from New Zealand and Korea are expected to arrive later on.

The Indian delegation, whose members arrived in traditional clothes, was brought to Israel in order to teach the Holocaust and its horrors as a lesson to humanity in schools and universities in India. Some of the participantsrepresent the largest independent educational network in India, which educates more than two million students from kindergarten to the age of university.Bachar adds that “in 2013 we are planning to expand Holocaust studies to countries which have never had organized Holocaust studies, like South Korea and Cyprus, and offer mobile instructions in Indiathrough a team of experts from Yad Vashem and the Foreign Ministry.
Anti-Semitic sentiments are hardly felt in Asia in general, and in India in particular, yet bookstores in India sell Adolf Hitler’s autobiography, “Mein Kampf.” In addition, many Indians idolize the Nazi leader, viewing him as a “strong man” without understanding his acts.The Jewish community in India was outraged recently after a clothing store named “Hitler” was opened in the Gujarat state. Following the intervention of the Foreign Ministry and India’s small Jewish community, the store owners decided to change its name.

And India does have its own crusader for ‘Holocaust education” Another Indian who is sure he is from the Chosen Tribes Dr Navroz Afridi
Truly committed to raising an awareness of the Holocaust in India and to combating Holocaust denial, Indo-Judaic Studies researcher and Muslim-Jewish Relations Activist, Dr. Navras Jaat Aafreedi would be the only Indian to attend the International Educator Institute at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, DC, when it takes place from 16th to 20th September, 2013. Last year in June, he conducted an educational workshop at an International conference on Holocaust education at Yad Vashem in Jerusalem, Israel, on how to educate the Indians about the Holocaust.
Thanks to Dr. Aafreedi’s efforts, South Asia had its first ever Holocaust films retrospective in 2009 at the Lucknow University and the Ambedkar University in Lucknow, a major centre of Muslim scholarship, in Uttar Pradesh, India. This Holocaust films retrospective got organized, not far away in the Judeo-Christian West, but in close proximity to Iran, in one of the major Shia cultural centres of the world, Lucknow, right in the centre of the Muslim heartland of South Asia, home to the world’s largest Muslim population.
While the films retrospective was in progress, the two most popular Urdu newspapers there, Rashtriya Sahara and Aag tried to sabotage it by publishing front-page lengthy stories denying the Holocaustand terming it the biggest hoax of the twentieth century. But this did not hamper the enthusiasm of Dr. Aafreedi, who passionately screened forty-eight Holocaust films in a span of fourteen days and even got a number of Muslim intellectuals to speak against Holocaust denial. He also organized a number of book readings focusing on the Holocaust. http://weeklypresspakistan.com/2013/09/8882
