King Mohammed VI of Morocco has ordered to ‎incorporate Holocaust studies into the country’s ‎‎education system, Moroccan news website Le Desk ‎reported on Wednesday.‎

The reports, which quickly went viral, said that the ‎decision was made while the monarch was attending ‎the 73rd U.N. General Assembly in New York last ‎week, adding that Mohammed sent word to Education ‎Minister Said Amzazi, saying Holocaust studies must ‎be included in the country’s high school curriculum. ‎

‎“The history we teach our children must include a ‎pluralistic variety of opinions and stories. It must ‎present humanity’s greatest moments, as well as its ‎darkest moments,” the report quoted a statement by ‎the king.‎

‎“Education has the power to fight against ‎‎discrimination and racism, as well as the ugly ‎phenomenon ‎of anti-Semitism,” he said. ‎

UNESCO director Audrey Azoulay, the daughter of one ‎of Mohammed’s chief advisers, Andre Azoulay, ‎welcomed the move.‎

‎“To address anti-Semitism, it is to defend the equal ‎dignity for all human beings,” Azoulay tweeted. ‎‎“Education is the best tool to prevent all forms of ‎discrimination.””

It is unclear at this time what form Holocaust studies ‎would take in Morocco, and what language the ‎country’s textbooks would opt for. ‎

Jerusalem and Rabat established diplomatic ties in ‎‎1994. King Mohammed VI’s regime is known as ‎sympathetic to Jews. ‎
