Wisconsin school district investigating photo of students doing apparent Nazi salute

The official Auschwitz Memorial Twitter page tweeted a response to the photo.

Mueller says the photo doesn't reflect the district's values and that administrators will pursue appropriate action.

The Baraboo school district was investigating the photo Monday after it began making the rounds on social media.

The Baraboo Police Department is assisting the school district in its investigation.

She released a statement from the Baraboo School District, explaining that the school is working with parents and local authorities to investigate the image, taken last spring.

The district in the midwestern U.S. state condemned the photo, which was taken last spring before the annual prom dance and reportedly includes all the male students in Baraboo High School's class of 2019.

Mueller said the photo appears to have been taken last spring and wasn't on school grounds.

"It was just a wall of fire on each side of us, and we could hardly see the road in front of us", police officer Mark Bass said. The flames destroyed hundreds of homes, a hospital, a gas station, several restaurants and numerous vehicles, officials said.

"We all must take responsibility to call out hateful, disrespectful speech when it happens, no matter the speaker".

Baraboo, a town of about 12,000 people, is located 42 miles (68 kilometers) northwest of Wisconsin's capital city Madison.

"Auschwitz with its gas chambers was at the very end of the long process of normalizing and accommodating hatred", the museum wrote on Twitter.

One student in the picture, who wished to remain anonymous, said the photographer had instructed the boys to raise their hands.

According to WMTV, it also welcomed the boys involved to participate in its "online lessons dedicated to the history of Auschwitz". The internet can be a wonderful tool but for some there is an overwhelming urge to destroy.

Meanwhile, the photographer posted a statement saying, "To anyone that was hurt I sincerely apologize". "Be kind, Be gentle, Be civil!"
