The largest school system in Virginia has now reportedly decided to allow pupils to avoid a presentation by a Holocaust survivor, citing the varied student body and their “different experiences.”

The letter mentioned a planned talk by a survivor of the Holocaust for seventh-grade students, as reported by Adele Scalia, a parent of one of the students.

FCPS stated that it is offering an opt-out option for the benefit of certain individuals.

Fairfax County has a notable history of Muslim extremism.

A mosque in that area, frequented by individuals involved in the 9/11 attacks and the Fort Hood incident, was led by Abrar Omeish’s father, who recently served on the radical Fairfax County school board.

Omeish opposed an FCPS resolution that proposed a moment of silence to remember the victims of 9/11 and the recent Hamas attacks on Israel.
