The United Arab Emirates is bucking widespread denial of the Holocaust in the Middle East by becoming the first Arab nation to introduce Holocaust Education in its national curriculum.

The UAE embassy in Washington made the following statement: “In the wake of the historic Abraham Accords, the UAE will now include the Holocaust in the curriculum for primary and secondary schools,” the embassy said.

The move comes two years after the UAE signed the “Abraham Accords” with Israel.

The UAE’s Education Ministry will build the new curricula by working alongside the UK and Israel-based Institute for Monitoring Peace and Cultural Tolerance in School Education (IMPACT-se).

“The United Arab Emirates has been leading the way in peace and tolerance education in the region for some years,” said IMPACT-se CEO Marcus Sheff.

“IMPACT-se is delighted that they have taken this important step in educating about the Shoah and humbled to have partnered with the Ministry of Education.”

Dr Ali Rashid Al Nuaimi, a member of the U.A.E. Federal National Council and Chairman of the Defense Affairs, Interior and Foreign Affairs Committee at the Council, said, “Memorializing the victims of the Holocaust is crucial.”

In 2022, Dubai became host to the first Holocaust memorial exhibition in the region. This is the next step in bringing education and understanding to the future generations and we pray it will be something that happens in countries throughout the Middle East.
