Victor Frankel: A Plea to Teachers

"I am a survivor of a concentration camp.  My eyes saw what no person should witness: gas chambers built by learned engineers, children poisoned by educated physicians, infants killed by trained nurses; women and babies shot by high school graduates.  So I am suspicious of education!  My request of teaches is: help your student to be Human.  You efforts must never produce learned monsters, skilled psychopaths or educated Eichmans.  Reading, writing, spelling and arithmetic are only important if they serve to make students more Human."
