Legislation requiring Indiana's public schools to teach students about the horrors of the Holocaust has overwhelmingly passed the Indiana House.
The House voted 91-0 Friday in favor of the bill, which was inspired by Eva Mozes Kor, a 72-year-old Indiana woman who survived a concentration camp and operates a Terre Haute museum dedicated to teaching about the Nazis' World War II killings of some 6 million Jews in Europe.
Under the bill, which now moves to the Senate for consideration, Holocaust lessons would be required by law as part of U.S. history courses starting in the 2007-08 school year.
