Students post Nazi-themed photo for dance invitation

Officials at a Minnesota high school wrote to parents after two students were pictured in a social media post doing a Nazi salute and holding a sign with references to Adolf Hitler

MINNEAPOLIS -- Officials at a Minnesota high school wrote to parents after two students were pictured in a social media post doing a Nazi salute and holding a sign with references to Adolf Hitler.

Jeff Erikson, principal at suburban Minnetonka High School, called the post "deeply offensive" in his note to parents.

The newspaper reported the poster read: "Sweethearts would be a Hit(ler) w/you, and I could Nazi myself going w/anybody else. Be Mein? Yes or Nein."

Steve Hunegs, executive director of the Jewish Community Relations Council of Minnesota and the Dakotas, called the image insulting.
