Oklahoma school apologizes for Hitler yearbook quotation

The Associated Press - May 23, 2017 10:46 am

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – The principal of an Oklahoma high school is apologizing after its yearbook featured a quotation attributed to Adolf Hitler.
Students at Bishop McGuinness Catholic High School in Oklahoma City discovered the quote when they got the books earlier this month. Graduating seniors chose quotes to pair with their portraits.
A quote listed above Hitler’s name says, “If you want to shine like the sun, first you have to burn like it.” Some translations of Hitler’s manifesto “Mein Kampf” include similar wording, though the author of the quote is disputed.
It appeared in the yearbook directly below a quotation attributed to Anne Frank, the Holocaust diarist who perished in a Nazi death camp.
The principal sent parents a letter last week accepting blame for the gaffe and saying the school was buying stickers students could place over the offending quote.
