Action Solidarity against the Defamation of Waldorf education

Appeal to solidarity against the targeted defamation and smear of the Waldorf schools. I can't stand the defamation of them for being racist and anti-Semitic!

I, a former Berliner Waldorf pupil and daughter of an Auschwitz-survivor and Chairman for many years of the Central Jewish Council in Germany, who very consciously and deliberately sent me to a Waldorf school, appeal to all former and present pupils of the Jewish faith to contact and tell me about their experiences. I personally have only had good experiences during my school time; it was liberal, antiracist, tolerant of every faith and not missionary.

It was not without reason that the Waldorf schools were prohibited during the Nazitime!

That makes it even worse to now verbally defame the Waldorf schools without presenting concrete proofs and names, as for example is being done by Report Mainz and Samuel Althof in Basel.
