"The Youth of Today...
A report found on the Brussel's Journal detailed the hell of a German homeschooling family. The mother has been imprisoned and the father and children have fled the country. They are homeschooling their children and it has been illegal to do that in Germany since Hitler outlawed it.
"When an opponent declares, "I will not come over to your side," I calmly say, "Your child belongs to us already. . . . What are you? You will pass on. Your descendants, however, now stand in the new camp. In a short time they will know nothing else but this new community." Adolf Hitler Source: 1933, quoted in The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich, "Education in the Third Reich"
I found an interesting outline on the web entitled Reshaping of Education and Retraining of Youth. It details the tactics used by, and the thought process behind, the Third Reich's seizure of control of education. Apparently the State is still hell bent on controlling education over there in the Fatherland - or Motherland - or whatever the hell they call it these days.
From what I can gather, there are atleast 40 families in Germany who are facing fines or jailtime for homeschooling their children. It is inconceivable to me that the state of Germany would consider enforcing this law that was brought into being by the animal we know as Adolf Hitler. It is a disgrace upon that nation that this law is still on the books.
I request that those of you who are concerned about these German families write to the German embassy and make your feelings known. Thanking you in advance for that, BTW.
The HSLDA said the German embassy can be reached by e-mail through its website, by telephone at 202-298-4000 or by mail at: Wolfgang Ischinger, Ambassador, German Embassy, 4645 Reservoir Road NW, Washington, DC, 20007-1998.
I will leave you with one last quote from Hitler - and in this he is correct:
"The man who has no sense of history, is like a man who has no ears or eyes"
