Thewphaingarm School in Bangkok holds Nazi celebration E-mail

In Thailand, the Thewphaingarm School recently held a Nazi themed celebration in which about two hundred children, ages six to eighteen, wore red t-shirts and baseball caps with swastikas or military inspired outfits with Nazi armbands.

The Nazi-themed sports day  was complete with a large banner bearing the word Nazi and of course ‘decorative swastikas.’ Students, in the spirit of the event, carried fake rifles and performed the “sieg heil” salute.

In 1999, Thewphaingarm School was granted  approval by the Ministry of Education to establish an English programme. Many of their faculty are American or European born and educated. They pride themselves on being “sensitive to the student’s cultural identity” and seek “to create an individual who is capable of living and working in the international arena.”
