Hamas said it will stop the United Nations from teaching Palestinian children in Gaza about the Holocaust.

The history of the Holocaust is set to become part of a human rights curriculum in Gaza schools run by the U.N. Relief and Works Agency that are attended by more than 200,000 Palestinian children, The Guardian reported.

“We cannot agree to a program that is intended to poison the minds of our children,” said a statement from Hamas’ Ministry for Refugee Affairs. “Holocaust studies in refugee camps is a contemptible plot and serves the Zionist entity with a goal of creating a reality and telling stories in order to justify acts of slaughter against the Palestinian people.”

The Hamas statement said that the UNRWA should focus on teaching about human rights of Palestinians, the Guardian reported.
