Abstract

In Syria, all schools, including those of the private sector and UNRWA are under the supervision of the Ministry of Education which imposes on them all one curriculum and a single list of textbooks. The Center for Monitoring the Impact of Peace undertook a survey of 68 textbooks for grades 1 to 12. In all the 68 textbooks not a single positive remark about the Jews could be found. This book details those findings.
