Not sure if 'question' is the right word for the title...couldn't think what else to write, sorry.
My son came home from school yesterday and proceeded to tell me all about his lessons. He learnt that an entire creed/race of Tasmanian Aborigines were decimated here. Further DNA testing revealed that the race truly was 100% decimated, with no strain of those aborigines alive today. He was also taught that this is the only known case in WORLD HISTORY of an entire race being decimated - completely. Sure, Hitler would have like to and tried, and apparently there have been one or two races in Asia and India who came close, but total deciamtion didn't occur. There were survivors.
Has anyone heard about this?
I kind of want to go to school with him next week to learn all about this and have heaps of questions for his teachers, but he said he'd die of embarrassment! Sigh.
