President Obama tried to deport German family that had fled Germany over Hitler’s ban on homeschooling
Hitler’s ban on homeschooling is still in effect today. In 2006, Katharina Plett was arrested for homeschooling her own children. Her husband and their children fled the country. In 2008, Juergen and Rosemary Dudek were sentenced to 90 days in jail for homeschooling their own children.
Uwe and Hannelore Romeike and their homeschooled children fled Germany after the police showed up at their house to enforce Germany’s ban on homeschooling. They came to the United States. However, in March 2013, the Obama administration argued in federal court in favor of deporting them and sending them back to Germany.
In recent years, the environmental movement in Germany has persuaded the country to shut down one third if its nuclear power generating capacity.
