London Teacher Threatens to Send Jewish Student to ‘Your Gas Chambers’

By: JTA

(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. Jennifer Moe says:

    This is UNBELIEVABLE! That is soo vile and evil on so many levels. Too many to even list here!!

  3. Lee Graysonn says:

    Does not matter Lorraine he should not say that

  4. In spite of BDS's claims to the contrary, they've made the social and political climate far too easy and conducive for all the old monsters of Anti-Semitism to crawl out from beneath their rocks and bridges.

  5. 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.

  6. British liberals will sweep it under the rug

  7. Teacher needs to be stripped of his her credentials and sent to the insane asylum for shock treatment

  8. John Newman says:

  12. FIRE HIM IMMEDIATELY FOR HATE SPEECH.

  13. Teacher needs to be fired and then deported

  14. JoAnn Morris says:

    unfortunate but true.

  15. The teacher deserves to be flogged and I volunteer to do the deed. DISGRACEFUL

  16. Disgusting..teaching license should be revoked. What kind of an example for the children could that teacher possibly be? And why is the school covering for her? Need more transparency on this…and accountability.

  17. How awful. Cruel. Mean. Fire the teacher

  18. Ken Gesser says:

    Teacher should be fired and then forced to go to the remains of Auschwitz!

  19. Mandy Jacobs says:

  24. The world is not normal any longer.

  25. That is totally unacceptable that should be fired and taken Auschwich and made to look at the remains of this atrocity

  26. boy i tell ya these teachers are just cazy i hope the parents sue the school

  27. John Daniel Giannone says:

    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.

  28. Mark Feder says:

    Shameful in this day and age.

  29. its about time to throw the uk out of the allied gov coalition if they dont want then every country will be kicking there punk asses

  32. Judy Jay says:

    Fire that teacher – can’t believe she would say something like that..how terrible.

  33. Hank Lukas says:

    Action has to be taken with this teacher. Here in the United States,there was a shooting at a Jewish Community Center, in Kansas three people were killed. Day before Passover.

  34. Hank Lukas says:

    looks like Jews are under attack again.

  35. This teacher should NEVER again be allowed to teach any pupil. Everyone who knows her should shun her! I had hoped thst Anti-semitism would be a thing of the past. However, this is not the case.

  36. This should never happen!

  37. This is a teacher without what it takes to be responsible for young people

  38. This is a teacher without what it takes to be responsible for young people

  50. Yetta Tropp says:

    Outrageous! The teacher needs to be fired!

  51. @Betty Bryant~This happened in London, England…

  52. “Let All the Poisons That Lurk in the Mud . . . Hatch Out” ;)

  53. Racism is still prevalent in the world. It needs to be fought vehemently.

  54. teacher should be fired

  55. This teacher obviously has gotten the diploma for” time served” instead of for learning. Its a siogn of these evil times…

  56. Alan Kardon says:

    The public has a right to know what penalty has been given. We also have a right to know the name of this person. If not the whole school is to be held accountable.

  57. If that comment was made to a muslim student, it would now be headlines in the press, and a major news item on the TV news. The teacher should have been dismissed.

  58. Very true ……Sad isn't it ??

  59. Given the escalating verbal and physical attacks against Jews around the globe, the only appropriate action is dismissal of the teacher. Immediately.

  60. Ron Bier says:

    This is probably typical of the mindset of many Brits. I,m not trying to be outrageous or cute when I say this, but this piece of feces should be BEHEADED.

  61. Think before you speaks. Words have power in them. One day it will come back to you. How will you feel? Jews are a chosen nation of the LORD, we have to remember this ALL THE TIME! We touch the apple of the Lord's eye.

  62. Mandy Jacobs says:

    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 !!!!!!!

  63. Jay Padgug says:

    Anti-Semitism raises its ugly head again. An unforgiveable statement whether made at an exclusive British school or anywhere else. Assuming that the accusation is true, that teacher should be terminated forthwith.

  64. 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!
