This is an amazing story worth sharing.
After the end of world war 2, this letter was found in Nazi concentration camp, which contains following message addressing the teachers.
I am a survivor of a concentration camp. My eyes saw what no man should witness:
Gas chambers built by learned engineers.
Children poisoned by educated physicians.
Infants killed by trained nurses.
Women and babies shot and burned by high school and college graduates.
So, I am suspicious of education.
My request is: Help your students become human. Your efforts must never produce learned monsters, skilled psychopaths, educated illiterates.
Reading, writing, arithmetic are important only if they serve to make our children more humane.
