The National Bureau of Vigilance Against Anti-Semitism denounces and condemns unacceptable facts that occurred in CM2 class of a primary school in St. Louis Landier Clement de Riviere (34980) or a teacher was drawing and coloring a swastika to his students.
It is a member of an association (PEEP) which alerted BNVCA after being informed by the parents of the only Jewish student in the class.
According to our correspondent, the incident occurred on the morning of Friday, May 17 in the CM2 class, following a presentation on "hitler" presented by two students. The teacher, to illustrate his geometry class, students were asked to draw and color a swastika. The aim was to explain the "symmetry. "
Shocked, the only Jewish student was offended. His parents then alerted a member of PEEP.
According to our informant, after the emotion aroused, the teacher was pulling compromising scrapbook pages of their students and the principal addressed the students in the class in question.
However, we ask the Minister of Education and the Rector of the Academy to the educational, administrative and discipline that would be required, particularly in light of this teaching method.
The BNVCA considers it desirable that a historian, or a survivor of the Holocaust, can address these students and their teachers to better understand the evils of Nazi propaganda and its symbol: the swastika.
The BNVCA welcomes the young Jewish student in this class who, despite his young age, has dared to defend both his identity and memory.
