“Pigtails, Dresses and Runes”: Booklet Helps German Teachers Identify Children From “Nazi” Households
THE AMADEU ANTONIO INSTITUTE in Germany has published a brochure for teachers, offering tips on how they can identify the children of “Nazi” parents.
The tell-tale signs are apparently pigtails and dresses among girls, and a strong interest in sports among boys.
The brochure is called “Ene, mene, muh — und raus bist du!” [Eenie, meenie, miney, moh — out you go!] Inequality and infant pedagogy”.
Children cannot themselves be Nazis, the brochure warns. But their parents might be. If the children draw shapes that look like runes or swastikas, it could be a sign they are being reared in a Nazi household.
If the children seem subdued and exhibit no discipline problems, it is possible they are being reared in an authoritarian “Volkish” household. If they do craft work at home or seem comfortable with traditional gender roles, if the girls wear pigtails and dresses or the boys seem physically well-trained, these could be also be warning signs.
It describes parents complaining about boys being allowed or encouraged to wear dresses or put on nail polish at the school. These parents suffer from stereotypes about masculinity or femininity that could serve a bridging function towards “far-right” ideologies.
The Amadeu Antonio Institute was founded by Anetta Kahane [her name a variant of Cohen, designating the ancient Jewish priestly caste]. It receives lavish funding from the German state. Kahane has admitted acting as an informant for the Stasi in the former East Germany.
The mainstream German conservative party has criticised the booklet while their “Socialist” coalition partners have welcomed it.
