A female teacher at Watkins Elementary School in Washington, DC made children aged 8 and 9 re-enact the HOLOCAUST in school. She actually picked a Jewish child to play Adolf Hitler and have him pretend to commit suicide as Hitler did in the bunker.
The other children were told to either pretend they were digging up those who were the victims of the Nazis, or pretend to die in the gas chambers, and in some cases to pretend to shoot others as the Nazis did to the Jews..
Dear God…..what planet is this woman on?
To deliberately pick on a Jewish child to play the man who caused the deaths of 6 million Jews is anti-semetic and a hate crime, and to get the children to pretend to commit suicide or pretend to die in gas chambers is also a hate crime. It is child abuse. This teacher is a danger to children and she should not be let anywhere near teaching again.
I can understand teaching children about the Shoah but at 8 and 9 years old there is a way to do it that won’t terrorise them or result in the vile anti-semetism she engaged in, nor would it upset the family of the young Jewish boy who could have had relatives murdered by the Nazis. None of that was taken into account in her rush to enact the evil of others.
‘I want to acknowledge the gravity of this poor instructional decision, as students should never be asked to act out or portray any atrocity, especially genocide, war, or murder,’ Berkowitz said in an email to parents. The Principal of the school.
Another parent said that her son was told to pretend to be on the trains that ran to the concentration camps before simulating death by gas chamber. The student was also told to fake shooting his classmates, the parent, who spoke on a condition of anonymity, said. There are additional accusations that the instructor was making anti-Semitic statements throughout. (www.dailymail.com). I am not surprised with these type of people as they cannot help themselves, they have to spill out their nauseating anti-semetic bile as they just can’t keep it in.
The school must never employ this hate filled anti-semite again, infact no school should employ her again. The police should arrest her for hate crimes and there should be no place where this awful woman should be allowed to go with regards to teaching.
