Eighth Grade Students Assigned to argue if Holocaust really happenedPosted by Eileen Hart on May 6, 2014
Could Common Core sink any lower to scrubbing historical facts in its curriculum? That is apparently the case in Rialto Unified School District. The school district is under intense scrutiny for a Holocaust revisionist assignment. The 8th grade assignment asked the students to debate about its actual existence AND whether or not the Jews used it as a propaganda tool for monetary and political gain. The political gain part is interesting being that Jews could not get certain jobs in those days nor could they gain acceptance into certain Ivy League universities such as Harvard.
So, the answer to Common Core’s curriculum that we Jews invented the Holocaust for monetary and political gain during the 40’s is an unapologetic NO.
Part of their essay assignment was to research whether or not Jews were actually gassed in the gas chambers claiming it as a hoax. This revisionist theory came up years ago in the 80’s in the form of a man called Dr. Death. His name was Fred Leuchter. This assignment reeks of classic Leuchter. Fred was a self professed expert on the electric chair and various methods of gas chambers used for execution for prisoners with death sentences. He was regarded as an expert on these uses for a time. I am curious to know if anyone in Rialto reached out to Fred to gain insight on the specific testing on the gas chambers.
Fred Leuchter was an associate and friend of Ernst Zundel; a Canadian Holocaust revisionist. In February of 1988, Fred traveled to Auschwitz Concentration Camp and surreptitiously and illegally collected samples and bricks to test if Jews were gassed at Concentration camps. Fred alleged that it was impossible that Jews were gassed at the death camps. Zyklon B still holds an impenetrable amount of residue on the bricks at Auschwitz and Majdanek. He became an instant celebrity among the Neo Nazis and gave speeches all over the world. Ernst Zundel needed a so called “expert” to testify at a hearing on whether or not the gassing of millions of Jews really occured.
A documentary titled Dr. Death: The Rise and Fall of Fred A. Leuchter, Jr. was made documenting his false assertions and failure to prove the Holocaust never happened. This assignment is eerily similar to the teachings of Ernst Zundel and Fred Leuchter. Whoever Rialto Unified School District is getting their “expertise” in Holocaust studies from should be honest and tell who is feeding them grotesque lies. Any teacher seeking to brainwash children from the harsh realities of the Holocaust should be banned from being an educator for life.
