The Auschwitz Memorial is responding with gifts to help educate students in Baraboo after teachers there raised donations for the memorial following the Nazi salute picture taken with students there.
The Times of Israel says that the teacher’s union representing educators at Baraboo High School raised $2,100 for the museum, using sales from t-shirts saying “No room for hate. This classroom. This school. This community. This state. This country. This world.”
It followed release of a photo of numerous Baraboo High School students taking a photo with almost all of them doing the Nazi salute. Students there were not disciplined, citing free speech rights.
The Auschwitz Memorial, located at a former Nazi concentration camp where untold numbers of people died at the hands of Adolf Hitler’s regime, responded.
We wish to provide Baraboo High teachers with tools that would help them achieve their goals as tolerance & acceptance must be taught. We will send them books about the history of Auschwitz & survivors’ memoirs. Their value will match the donation. We hope they will use it well. https://t.co/C0lliDtKsc
