South Carolina Council on the Holocaust

“The work that the SC Council on the Holocaust does is so important for our students in South Carolina. Having a chance to discuss and reflect on the past gives students the tools to be better citizens for our future.”

--Molly Spearman, State Superintendent of Education

The Council's Statement on Holocaust Denial

   Holocaust denial is the untenable assertion that the Holocaust did not happen. Similarly, Holocaust distortion and   minimization are forms of denial that argue that the numbers of Jews murdered were exaggerated or that the Nazi   state did not systematically murder Jews.



  • The South Carolina Council on the Holocaust was established to develop an educational program to prevent future atrocities similar to the systematic program of genocide of six million Jews and others by the Nazis.
