Nice one ... watching Brian Cox THE PLANETS on Beeb 4 at the mo
Nearly over. Never heard of Hillsong Church TBH. Very large worldwide op.
We brought the kids to Anne Frank's house, and we all sat down to watch "The boy in the striped pajamas " and also the serialisation of the Diary of Anne Frank. And then lectured them on fascist parallels between brexit nationalism , MAGA, and fascism in Germany .Personally I'd actually show all the old concentration camps and mass-execution films in schools if I had my way. And tell the kids "This is what supposedly civilised people do if they're not bloody careful."
Sure it would give kids complexes - but there are some things about which we should have complexes. I probably have a complex about many of those Holocaust images myself, and I saw a lot of them in an unsupervised way as a kid back in the 60s. But I think maybe there's some things kids should have complexes about - things that serve as warnings and alarm signals. I know it was seeing some of these images that primed my innate reaction to the first images of suffering I saw from Bosnia - you didn't need explanatory articles or sophisticated arguments to react to seeing people in camps again.
