The curriculum will integrate well the teaching of the Armenian Genocide. In the curriculum draft circulated by Le Monde yesterday, we read about the third class that will be addressed in the ongoing First World War. It is particularly indicated the following: “The third class gives students the keys to understanding the contemporary world. It allows to show the magnitude of the crisis that French companies, European and world have crossed, but also social and political changes it could engender. By mobilizing the civilian as well as military, the Great War is testing the cohesion of societies and sustained weakening of regimes in places. Combatants and civilians suffer extreme violence, which particularly reflects the genocide of Armenians in 1915 “.
Nothing seems to have to change at this level. On the contrary, since the genocide issue is clearly highlighted in the few lines devoted to the program of the First World War. It therefore appears that the Ministry of Education headed by Najat Vallaud-Belkacem has resisted lobbying Ankara and its loyal supporters, as the academician Pierre Nora, who had campaigned for the removal of the teaching of the Armenian Genocide on the grounds that “choosing to focus on the Armenian Genocide in the First World War to the dedicated program falls history of ideological and electoral choice.”
