Prof. Edward Kissi, a professor of genocide and Holocaust studies at the Department of Africana Studies of the University of South Florida, emphasizes the importance of teaching about the Holocaust in African contexts. He observes that the recent genocide in Rwanda, and growing genocidal conditions in other parts of the continent should make the teaching of the Holocaust and genocide in Africa an educational priority. Prof Kissi shares the view that understanding why and how the Holocaust occurred is a way to prepare a modern nation to prevent genocide and its destructive impact on a country's psyche and human capital, while promoting human rights core values and nurturing diversity in African societies.
