Airbrushing history isn't a good idea but it's not new. The Egyptians have been known to deface carved columns describing out of favour rulers and they probably weren't the first either.

I think it only right that young people in Germany should know everything about their history during WW2. So I am rather glad that Madame Tussauds has a waxwork model of Hitler as one of it`s exhibits.

I have wondered just how much do such countries as Germany, Italy and Japan tell their youngsters about WW2. I have always suspected that they teach very little in their schools about the worst of what went on at the time.

There's not enough taught about the period in our own schools either. Try asking your own grand children and see how little they know.

I think you'll find that youngsters in Germany know much more about the realities of WW II than youngsters of the same age over here. Can't speak for Italy or Japan.

They are fully aware of it, of Germany's role, of the atrocities and of Germany's guilt.

However, they understandably and rightly see it as previous generations' problem, not theirs.

While it is a sensitive subject they will discuss it quite openly and freely, and by doing so perhaps may help to ensure it doesn't happen again.

Perhaps we should do the same.

I don`t remember learning very much at school about the war either and as I was born in 1946 it was not all that long after the end of the war.
