(JTA) — The parents of a Jewish student at an exclusive girls’ school in London called on the head of school to make a public statement about an incident in which a teacher told their daughter that she would be sent “to one of your gas chambers.”

The incident at North London Collegiate School occurred in January, London’s Daily Mail reported Sunday. The parents of the student, 17 at the time of the incident, on Saturday night called on the head of the school to speak publicly about the remarks to highlight the incident’s severity, according to the Mail.

The family has chosen to remain anonymous.

The teacher reportedly apologized to the student, but the school has not gone public with what, if any, disciplinary action was taken against the teacher.

In a statement, the school said it was “recently made aware of an allegation of an offensive statement made by a member of staff. The school promptly commenced an investigation. Having reached a determination and sought specialist legal advice, appropriate action was taken.”

The teacher, who was not one of the teen’s regular teachers, made the remark after the girl cut in line in the dining hall.

“Don’t do that or I’ll have to send you to the back of the queue or to one of your gas chambers,’ ” the girl’s father quoted the teacher as saying, according to the Mail, which reported that the remark was heard by several students who were waiting in line.

Another family reported the incident to the Community Security Trust, which advises Britain’s Jewish community on security issues, according to the Mail.

“This would be highly offensive in any circumstance, but to be directed at a pupil by a teacher is unheard of and makes it far worse,” Community Security Trust communications director Mark Gardner told the Mail. “We are working with all parties to resolve the matter.”

  1. I would like to know if this teacher is a Nazi? And by the way , muslims can be Nazis as well as white ppl. Anyone who dislikes the Jewish ppl are Nazis , Iran sides with Germany, as well as Syria . And yes Arabs to! Go ahead start the hate speech!

  2. Political correctness says you can say anything you want about white, heterosexual men & Jews, but you better NOT say anything about anyone else. I wouldn't be surprised if British liberals sweep this under the rug. It is time for all Jews to move to Israel & get out of Europe & the USA. I can't wait until liberals see what Muslims have in store for them. After all, they are also infidel dogs!

    I will be making Aliyah in the next couple of years.

  3. Seriously, who even thinks like this. What kind of brain/mind does someone have to have for this kind of automatic thought to pop into their heads. One could think any number of things to themselves, "thoughtless," "jerk," but this is just so beyond the pale. For all we know, this kid could have been talking to one of her friends and not even cutting the line. Unfortunately, it doesn't surprise me at all that this would not be treated more severely as anything seems to go in England, and to a greater degree in Europe, these days regarding religious hatred towards Jewish people.

  4. This teat her should be SACKED can you imagine if a teacher saying to a Muslim pupils get back to the back of the lines just incase you blow someone up . The Media would have that on every news station and every news paper . The school would of made shaw the teacher wold of been sacked but in The UK the only way to get away with anything you must be Muslim !!!!!!!

  5. You are spot-on, Mandy! The media's protection of violent and lying muzzies makes me ashamed to have been a former liberal and buying into all that PC crap. Where PC protected American minorities from psycho-political harm, it's been enrolled to protect muzzie immigrants living on the dole while threatening our safety and democracy. Disgusting!
