A Polish primary school held an Auschwitz themed dance recital featuring children pretending to be gassed to death.
Some children wore concentration camp uniforms while others oversaw the gassing dressed in full Nazi regalia.
The performance took place in the village of Labunie, Eastern Poland, on December 10.
It was part of an event held to mark the school naming itself after the “Zamość Children” – Polish children who were deported to make room for resettlement by ethnic Germans.
In a video posted by Polish news website Tygodnik Zamojski, children can be seen writhing on the floor while a smoke machine simulates gas wafting over them.
Newsweek Polska reporter Dawid Karpiuk, who attended the event, said: “At one point, the Gestapo officers turned on a smoke machine and the gassed ‘prisoners’ fell to the floor pretending to be dead.”
He reported that similar performances were being held in thousands of Polish schools.
Earlier this year another video of Polish children re-enacting a scene from Auschwitz was released.
In it the children put on a play about the story of Maksymilian Kolbe, a Polish priest who died after swapping places with another prisoner set to go to the gas chambers.
