Israeli educational system : an instrument of memoricide

"When I talk in civics class about the Arab minority, and about its uniqueness in being a majority that became a minority, my students argue and say it's not true that they were a majority. When I go to the history teacher and ask her why the students don't know that in 1947 there was a certain number of Arabs here, and in 1948 there was a different number, she becomes evasive and says it's not part of the curriculum..."

Miriam Darmoni-Sharvit, Israeli civics teacher.
