History and the Nazi Party

In the chapter entitled "Internal achievements of Nazism," one textbook quoted by AFP states: "Hitler lent dignity and prestige to the German government within a short time, establishing a strong administrative set-up."

I really can't believe someone actually published something like this, and that a school would use it- despite protests from pretty much everyone.

A Jesuit priest and social activist, Cedric Prakash, says the books contain more than 300 factual errors and make little mention of the holocaust. Despite protests from parents, peace activists and educationists, the updated school books still contain the same objectionable text this academic year.
