In collaboration with other agencies, the Oklahoma State Department of Education has created this page dedicated to the teaching of the Holocaust. Teaching the Holocaust is required in the social studies standards, and may be integrated into English language arts or visual arts.

Holocaust education may be integrated into one or more existing courses of study and shall be taught in a manner that:

1.  Generates an understanding of the causes, course, and effects of the Holocaust;

2.  Develops dialogue with students on the ramifications of bullying, bigotry, stereotyping, and discrimination; and

3.  Encourages tolerance of diversity and reverence for human dignity for all citizens in a pluralistic society.
