A group of Argentinan students who parodied the popular song "Barbie Girl" with their own rendition of "Nazi Girl" sparked so much Jewish outrage that their teacher ended up fired and their school was forced to apologize.
The students, who attend the private Escuela Modelo of San Juan, made the video for a history class assignment. In the video, which has since been posted online, the students are dressed as National Socialists as they sing, "I'm a Nazi girl, in a Nazi world."
The video begins with a male student dressed as Adolf Hitler, and makes several references to what happened to the Jews in Germany. Students dressed up as Jews and homosexuals are knocked over or humiliated in the clip.
"You must behave, or you are gonna die," the students sing in one scene, as they open up an oven. Other lyrics include, "Come on Jews, let's go [to the] camps," and "Come on Joseph, let's make soap."
The school later released a statement apologizing to the local Jewish Community Center, and other groups that were included in the video, according to The Times of Israel.
