A principal at a Boca Raton, Florida, high school who came under fire over the weekend for denying that the Holocaust was a “factual, historical event” in an email to a parent has been removed from his post, the district announced on Monday.

William Latson, the principal at Spanish River Community High School, was reassigned to a position with the district after the email exchange from April 2018 made national news.

“It is out of an abundance of concern and respect for the students and staff of Spanish River Community High School that school district administration has decided to reassign Principal William Latson effective immediately,” the school district of Palm Beach County wrote in a statement, according to The Palm Beach Post.

Latson apologized in a statement to the Post, claiming that he regretted “the verbiage” that he used in the email and that it “did not accurately reflect my professional and personal commitment to educating all students about the atrocities of the Holocaust.”

1. Hallelujah! or whatever the appropriate exclamation is

I couldn't believe his attitude of "respecting others' beliefs" included Holocaust denial.

2. for all those who claim

that the Holocaust isn't real, I believe each and every one should be required to visit their local Holocaust Museum, or better yet, required to visit the Concentration Camps preserved in Poland. The actual buildings, along with descriptions of the horrors. It's truly sad that those who lived through the horrors of Nazi Germany are slowly passing away, unable to describe to these individuals who can't seem to fathom something like that happening (as it's happening again today in our own Country).
