Dr. Bolkosky believes the
new curriculum answer-
shistorical revisionists who
claim the Holocaust never
happened. It also explains the
Holocaust in terms and ex-
amples that students can
relate to their own lives.
Although there are 20
Holocaust curricula now
available in the United
States, Life Unworthy of Life
has been endorsed by
Holocaust scholar Raul
Hilberg. The Anti-
Defamation League's Interna-
tional Center for Holocaust
Studies, which has produced
its own curriculum, calls Life
Unworthy of Life one of the
three best in the country.
These endorsements will be
critical to the local cur-
riculum for marketing pur-
poses. Lutz Associates has put
up $100,000 worth of money
and time through the Center
for the Study of the Child to
produce the curriculum, and
1,000 sets are to be publish-
ed at an additional cost of
$160,000. Paying for the pro-
ject is now high on the
The Center for the Study of
the Child has held several
fundraising parlor meetings
among Detroit-area sur-
vivors. Another parlor is
scheduled this weekend. Sur-
vivors and others locally and
nationally are being asked to
sponsor a page of the cur-
riculum, the videotape or
whole lessons. The center has
also applied to several local

foundations and 40 national-
ly for grants. A major project
this fall will be to market the
curriculum nationally.
necessary, Dr. Bolkosky said,
because the $275 price for a
teacher's manual, videotape
and 35 student textbooks is
the "market price," but
"doesn't begin to cover the
costs." The Center for the
Study of the Child also wants
to subsidize poorer school
districts which may not be
able to afford the curriculum.
For that reason, the
copyrightfor Life Unworthy of
Life is held by the Jewish
Community Council of
Metropolitan Detroit. Any
profits from sales of the cur-
riculum will be used by the
Council for Holocaust
Nagourney in November
will meet with a consulting
group in Washington, D.C. to
plan a national marketing ef-
fort. He will also meet with
representatives of the Na-
tional School Board Associa-
tion, the National Education
Association and other educa-
tional groups.
Sidney Lutz believes the
new curriculum "will be good
anywhere. There is nothing
else like it in Holocaust
education."In-service training
for teachers is not required for
its successful use, Lutz said.
An expected additional
benefit locally is increased at-
tendance at the Holocaust
Memorial Center, which is
one of the suggested field
trips in the new curriculum.
