"The Youth of Today...

is ever the people of tomorrow. For this reason we have set before ourselves the task of inoculating our youth with the spirit of this community of the people at a very early age, at an age when human beings are still unperverted and therefore unspoiled. This Reich stands, and it is building itself up for the future, upon its youth. And this new Reich will give its youth to no one, but will itself take youth and give to youth its own education and its own upbringing." Adolf Hitler, May 1 1937.

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"

Scary isn't it? Hitler was not a stupid man... he was a monster, but he was far from a stupid monster: "The man who has no sense of history is like a man who has no ears or eyes." The Islamofascists are doing the exact same thing, as are the liberals in our very own country by teaching revisionist history. We do have a battle on our hands, dear lady, a battle for the well-being of our children and grand-children.

You put together an excellent post here, with plenty to give many who will bother to think, food for thought. Thanks.

I'll put my two cents in!
The issue of who's in charge of my child was one of the biggest reasons we started homeschooling.

I agree Gayle and thank you. It is scary what is happening in government education in America today.

Thanks tshsmom. One of the big reasons for us choosing home education was having control over what the kiddies are taught.

I left a link to this post and a small write-up over on my post titled: "National Security,7/11, and Mama Bear"

I keep expecting someone to come in and tell me it's "9/11" and not "7/11", but I'm actually referring to the Grocery/gas station chain. LOL!

Thank you Gayle. lol about 7/11. Perhaps you ought to type it as 7-11. Or maybe just 711. No. Neither one of those looks right.

We sometimes forget what a privilege it is to have such freedom to homeschool here. Hopefully with Angela Merkel now at the helm Germany will come to its senses and make it legal to homeschool.

I hope so LMC. I thank God every day that I am an American. Even with all of the problems this country has - there is nowhere on Earth that I would rather live. God Bless America.

Fact: Hitler was an effective leader.

Many are the lessons we can learn from the Third Reich.

Today, the right of parents to homeschool their children is under fire--sometimes blatantly, sometimes subtly. It is imperative that American parents hold onto that right. The next generation is at stake!

If only they had taught us history in school AOW. I agree with everything you have said. We must remain vigilant.
