UK: Jewish student told by teacher she'll be sent to "one of your gas chambers"

A Jewish teenager at one of Britain’s top public schools was left distraught after a teacher said she would be sent to ‘one of your gas chambers’ because she had jumped the lunch queue.

The astonishing outburst happened at girls-only North London Collegiate School, whose former pupils include actress Rachel Weisz, ChildLine founder Esther Rantzen and Vogue editor Anna Wintour.

The teacher has apologised privately to the girl for the horrifying remark, but the school refuses to identify the woman or explain what, if any, disciplinary action has been taken against her. 

The girl’s father said: ‘A teacher was passing by and she rushed up to my daughter and said, “Don’t do that or I’ll have to send you to the back of the queue or to one of your gas chambers.” ’  
The teacher, who has worked at the school for several years, was not one of the student’s subject tutors and there had been virtually no previous contact between the two.
