What Should Education Do For Us and For Our Children?

A school director sent this letter to each teacher:

Dear teachers!

I survived a concentration camp; my eyes saw what no one ought to have seen:

  • scientists and engineers built gas chambers
  • qualified doctors poisoned children
  • trained nurses killed babies
  • university graduates shot and burned women and children…

Therefore, I don’t trust education per se. I ask you… help your pupils to become human beings. Your efforts should never lead to helping nihilistic scientists or trained and educated psychopaths like Eichmann emerge. Reading, writing, and arithmetic are important only when they help our children to become better human beings!
