Nazi parade by Thai students triggers row

Wednesday September 28, 2011 03:05:46 PM, IANS

Bangkok: A Thai school had to apologise to a Jewish human rights group after its students caused a controversy by taking out a Nazi-themed parade featuring Adolf Hitler and his SS guards, a media report said.

In one of the photographs, a group of girls, dressed in Nazi SS guards outfit and wearing the Nazi symbolic swastika armbands, have been captured marching through the school ground, Xinhua reported.

The Simon Wiesenthal Center, a Jewish human rights group based in Los Angeles, Monday issued a statement protesting the "disgraceful display", accusing the school administration of "glorifying Nazis".

The outrage came after some photographs taken on a sports day in the school, in northern Thailand's Chiang Mai province, were posted online.

The high school apologised soon after receiving the protest.
