Parents lose custody of kids over Nazi ideologyJune 11th, 2008 - 1:45 pm ICT by IANS
Toronto, June 11 (IANS) A couple in Canada has been forced to give up custody of their two children to the authorities after teaching them Nazi ideology. The government of Manitoba province snatched the kids from a Winnipeg-based couple for filling their minds with Nazi beliefs and racist hatred.
The children - a seven-year-old girl and her two-year-old brother - are now in the care of the Child and Family Services of the province.
The government has moved the court, seeking permanent custody of the children on grounds of ensuring their emotional well being away from their white supremacist parents.
According to the Winnipeg Free Press, the bizarre case came to light in March when the young girl came to school one morning with a sign of swastika and the Nazi symbol “14/88″ written on her little body.
The number 14 refers to a slogan containing 14 words - “We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children” while 88 represents the letters HH (the eighth in the alphabet) to mean `Heil Hitler’, the newspaper reported.
“The children may be at risk due to the parents’ behaviour and associates. The parents might endanger the emotional well being of the children,” the daily quoted an official affidavit seeking custody of the two kids as saying.
The police say they interviewed the father recently - and in 2005 - for his alleged involvement in “hate crimes” related to children.
The mother of the children has been described in court custody papers as being unfit to parent, based on her relationship with her husband, the paper said.
She has been described by a fellow white supremacist as “a devoted mother who takes cookies and soft drinks to a neo-Nazi meeting defending hate speech”.
