German Teachers to Be Dismissed for Denying Nazi Killing of Jews

Officials of the Teachers College of Bielefeld gave assurances today that action would be taken against two teachers who lauded the Nazi regime in a classroom discussion on the Nazi atrocities against Jews.

One of the teachers said he felt greatly honored at having experienced the Nazi era. The other called the mass slaughter of European Jewry by the Nazis “a legend.” A group of students took strong exception to this “distorting of the latest period of German history” and complained to college officials.

The Ministry of the Interior of Bavaria announced today the dissolution of the right-wing Federation of Patriotic Youth and all of its subsidiaries. The Ministry said the activities of the organization were inconsistent with the Constitution of Bavaria.
