Was wondering if they would teach my kid about it in 3rd grade today.
But not yet. I guess 4th or 5th grade?

My kids grew up around it so it's difficult for me to say but they all knew by the time they were five or six years old

I feel like the holocaust is a bigger talk for Jewish kids. What age is that done?

No later than 8th.
I had holocaust studies in 7th grade iirc.

Are there text books teachers use to teach 9/11 or it's too recent for that?

10 year olds can understand IME. My kids grew up with a great grandmother who was in Auschwitz.

Im sure there are textbooks except in Minnesota.

In 7-8th grade all should be able to understand at that point. It does not hurt to hold off a year or two.

Will you have your kids visit Auschwitz? If so what age should they at least be? @jj1000

I did march of the living when I was 21, was extremely powerful and easily one of the most moving experiences of my life. But I don't think I would have appreciated it as much if I was younger. Would likely appreciate it even more today as a parent.

Because of my uncle, I think we talked with the kids briefly about it when they were younger, maybe 3rd or 4th grade. But in simplistic terms - there were really bad people who wanted to hurt america and americans, and they hurt and killed a lot of people.

I had my uncle come speak to their middle school (6-8th grades) 4 years ago and even then he didn't go into to much detail. Now that my older two boys are in HS, I fill them in with more details.
