Default Croatian anger as school curriculum drops Anne Frank

Croatian anger as school curriculum drops Anne Frank


A decision to drop Jewish Anne Frank's diary from Croatia's school curriculum sparked outrage in the Balkan country, with nearly 3,000 people signing a petition Thursday demanding its restitution.

The book was on an optional reading list which has been entirely removed from the curriculum.

"The Holocaust is not an issue which can be skipped," the petition reads.

Education Minister Blazenka Divjak said on Facebook that she would "accept criticism" over the issue and canvass teachers on their recommendations for required reading, with petitioners hoping "The Diary" will be among their top choices.
