Department for Education

27 November 2013

Dear Mr Moran,
Thank you for your request for information, which was received on 18
November. You requested “a copy of all information on the alleged
holocaust of 6 million jews during World War Two by the Germans on the
National Curriculum in the last 20 years.”  In addition you asked “Please
also confirm where you obtained this information from and how much was
paid for it.”  I am dealing with your request under the Freedom of
Information Act 2000.

First of all, and by way of background, I would point out that the
Department for Education (DfE) sets the framework for the national
curriculum, and teaching about the Holocaust is a compulsory part of the
history curriculum at key stage 3.  The DfE does not however specify how
it should be taught, nor what resources teachers should use.

With this in mind, in order to identify and locate the information that
you have asked for, I require some further information from you, as the
scope of your request is unclear.  In particular, it would be useful to
know exactly what recorded information you are seeking, so that I might
establish whether it is held by this Department.

If you have any queries about this letter, please contact me. Please
remember to quote the reference number above in any future communications.

If you are unhappy with the way your request has been handled, you should
make a complaint to the Department by writing to me within two calendar
months of the date of this letter.  Your complaint will be considered by
an independent review panel, who were not involved in the original
consideration of your request.

If you are not content with the outcome of your complaint to the
Department, you may then contact the Information Commissioner’s Office.
Your correspondence has been allocated reference number 2013/0071785. If
you need to respond to us, please visit:
[1]www.education.gov.uk/contactus, and quote your reference number.

Yours sincerely,

Elaine Schollar

Dear Department for Education,
You must know where you get your information on the alleged murder
of 6 million jews by the Germans during World War Two. Also how
much you pay for this information. Are you saying Schools simply
teach what they want on this subject?

Yours faithfully,

Sean Moran

Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of
Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of British Broadcasting
Corporation’s handling of my FOI request ‘BBC and the alleged
holocaust’.

I feel this refusal to a perfectly reasonable request is totally
unjustified. Please reconsider.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is
available on the Internet at this address:

Yours faithfully,

Sean Moran
