This paper provides an overview of some of the issues relating to the way in which the Holocaust can be taught and learned. It arises from a forthcoming edited book which will be published by Cassell in the year 2000. The paper will draw from the introduction to that book. Reference will be made to the profound difficulties of understanding the Holocaust as well as to the huge challenges associated with developing appropriate forms of teaching and learning with young people. It is argued that these challenges can and must be met if not entirely overcome. Ideas and practical examples are given to suggest ways forward.
