A British teacher has been fired for telling a class with young Jewish pupils that she would “ship them off to the gas chambers” if they didn’t finish their work, according to reports. The unidentified teacher was punished for making the disgusting comment to a class of 28 — including 11 who are Jewish — at Newberries Primary School in Hertfordshire, according to The Sun. She quickly insisted she was “joking” and begged her 10-year-old students not to report her, the paper said. But enough youngsters told their parents about the anti-Semitic outburst that an emergency meeting was called for the board of governors that ended with her firing last Friday, the reports say.
