Cheng Hsiao-ming, head of the Kuang Fu High School in Hsinchu, said he took “full responsibility” and apologised.

Their”rally featured a parade of swastika banners and a cardboard tank carrying one student performing a National Socialist salute.

Israel’s representative called the event “deplorable” and Taiwan’s presidential office has apologised.

Announcing his resignation, Mr Cheng said: “As educators, we should have taught students to have the right values. We will learn from the mistakes we made and have asked students to do so too.”

He said the school would hold a series of educational programmes, including showing films about the Holocaust such as Schindler’s List and Life is Beautiful.

The Israel Economic and Cultural Office would also be invited to address students, he said.

The Taipei Times said that one of the school’s teachers, Liu Hsi-cheng, had suggested Arabic culture as the theme for the parade but the students decided to go with Adolf Hitler after two rounds of voting.

The paper said some students opted for the Nazis for the Christmas and Thanksgiving Costume Parade because they could easily convert their school uniforms.

After the images emerged, Asher Yarden, Israel’s representative to Taiwan, wrote on the mission’s Facebook page: “It is deplorable and shocking that seven decades only after the world had witnessed the horrors of the Holocaust, a high school in Taiwan is supporting such an outrageous action. We strongly condemn this tasteless occurrence and call on the Taiwanese authorities, in all levels, to initiate educational programmes which would introduce the meaning of the Holocaust and teach its history and universal meaning.”

Taiwan’s presidential office promptly apologised for the incident, saying it showed an “extreme lack of respect for Jewish people and a profound ignorance of history”.

‘NAZI’ monkey does Hitler salute

In the clip below – filmed using a smartphone – a large chimpanzee rests on a pile of rocks as visitors marvel at the majestic beast.But when things seem all too cute and fluffy something horrific happens.

The ape raises its arm aloft into a position that looks exactly like the infamous Nazi salute used by Adolf Hitler supporters in World War 2(gasp), say it aint so.

Surprised visitors can be heard both gasping and laughing at the gesture before the camera cuts.

And – in response to the scene – a wildlife scientist has come forward to defend the animal.

Professor Phyllis Lee said: “It’s obviously something the chimp was trained to do by people.”

It is unknown whether the monkey was instructed to perform this action but Lee added: ” The chimp shouldn’t be involved in human politics.”

The clip – filmed at an unknown location – has racked up thousands of hits and viewers offered up mixed reactions to what they saw.

One reader wrote: “If he threw excrement or did something sexual nobody would care. He’s just a chimpanzee.”

Another commented: “The main issue is whether somebody taught him to do it or not.”

And a third: “Anyone stupid and shallow enough to be offended by a chimpanzee putting his arm out should be placed in the zoo next to it.”

Did the Germans get a fair trial at Nuremberg?

Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court, soon to be Chief Justice, Harlan Fiske Stone, criticized the IMT at Nuremberg as follows (in a private letter to Sterling Carr, dated 4 December 1945):

Harlan Fiske Stone as Chief Justice

 

“Jackson is away conducting his high-grade lynching party in Nuremberg. I don’t mind what he does to the Nazis, but I hate to see the pretense that he is running a court and proceeding according to common law. This is a little too sanctimonious a fraud to meet my old-fashioned ideas.” [A.T. Mason, Harlan Fiske Stone: Pillar of the Law, 1956, p. 716]

It is not necessary to appeal to personal authority in this matter, however. The specific points in support of the contention that the Germans did not get a fair trial before the IMT at Nuremberg, have become, over time, relatively uncontroversial: it is only when you derive from the uncontroversial facts the obvious conclusion that the IMT was indeed a “high-grade lynching party,” that controversy occurs. Here is a detailed presentation of those now uncontroversial facts.
