Download PDF for this date

Disciplinary action was ordered today against a teacher at the Bielefeld Teachers College for remarks considered pro-Nazi which he made to students.

According to the charge against the man, he had said that the reports of the mass murder of Jews by the Nazis were “fairy tales” and that the methods of teaching contemporary history, including the history of the Nazi period, constituted “a lie.”
