A few months ago, the news came that the state of Texas had approved a $1 billion plan to build a new high school.
Its first class was to begin its first day of classes on February 10.
But the school, in an effort to keep the district’s finances in order, didn’t include the history of the Holocaust.
Instead, it focused on the lives of Jewish Americans, as they struggled to survive the Holocaust, the AP reported.
According to the report, the district decided to keep a list of all students’ names, their age, and their parents’ names as well as their parents first names.
But it also included a history of who was in charge of the school and its administration, including the school’s founder, Isaac Deutscher, the report said.
The AP report noted that, at the time, it was unclear how the list would be used by the school.
In the end, the school had a policy of only including Jewish names.
In a press release, the state Department of Education said it was “working with Texas parents to identify resources to support Jewish families who may not have the means to maintain records of their Jewish identity.”
