Australian schools urged to teach European historyHistorians in the News
NSW Education Department head Michael Coutts-Trotter said he learned a month ago that the Holocaust had been omitted from the state's mandatory history course, he said in a speech to high school principals.
Professor of History and Politics at Wollongong University Gregory Melleuish said the country had become too obsessed with Australian history - to the detriment of an overall view of world events.
"We tend to look at thing like World War I and II as Australia's involvement rather than what was at stake, why did it occur and what was going on," he said.
