New York high school apologizes for Hitler quotes in yearbook

(Northport, NY-AP) June 13, 2006 - A New York high school is apologizing for Adolf Hitler quotations appearing in its yearbook.

Two students at Northport High chose quotes from Hitler's book "Mein Kampf" to appear under their senior pictures. One says "Strength lies not in defense, but in attack." The other reads "The great masses of people...will more easily fall victims to a big lie than to a small one."

The principal says the school "failed miserably" in not catching the quotes.

Northport is sending parents a written apology and considering whether to reprint part of the yearbook or offer special tape to people who want to cover the quotes.

The father of one of the students says his son meant no harm. He says his son "didn't seriously consider the source."
