Kelly Reins at Ladies Against Feminism “She Survived Hitler And Wants To Warn America” December 24,2012

 

I have been wondering about the sanity of promoting the idea that government employees (teachers) carry firearms while children are in lock-down (school) inaccessible to the their parents, for their ‘safe’ education. Teachers are in a difficult place. Families using government schooling are in a bind right now. Helping others reach a position where they are no longer dependent on the government is a very important work.

(The words of Kitty Werthmann speaking about life under Hitler)

“Then we lost religious education for kids.”

“Our education was nationalized. I attended a very good public school.. The population was predominantly Catholic, so we had religion in our schools. The day we elected Hitler (March 13, 1938), I walked into my schoolroom to find the crucifix replaced by Hitler’s picture hanging next to a Nazi flag. Our teacher, a very devout woman, stood up and told the class we wouldn’t pray or have religion anymore. Instead, we sang ‘Deutschland, Deutschland, Uber Alles,’ and had physical education.

“Sunday became National Youth Day with compulsory attendance. Parents were not pleased about the sudden change in curriculum. They were told that if they did not send us, they would receive a stiff letter of warning the first time. The second time they would be fined the equivalent of $300, and the third time they would be subject to jail.”
