Holocaust education as curriculum history

Another project that I'd love to see done: someone who looks at Holocaust education in the 20th century as an example of curriculum. According to European historians who were at a panel at the Social Science History Association meeting, there really was nothing we would call an education about the Holocaust or the Nazis right after World War II, and its development (especially in colleges) is relatively recent. I'm curious about the alleged gap after WW2 and wonder what else might be hidden in that, as a curriculum-history topic, given the topic's various overtones.
