A German teacher was suspended after saying on Tuesday that he cares more about cattle that Holocaust victims, blogger Elder of Ziyon reported.

“Personally, I’m not interested in Auschwitz at all… Even industrial livestock farming emotionally affects me more,” Daniel Krause said when he called into a radio show on International Holocaust Remembrance Day.

Officials are also trying to get the 34-year-old fired, Elder of Ziyon noted. Dr. Gerd Bollermann said, “I am appalled by the tasteless and dehumanizing utterances. The Arnsberg District will not tolerate anything that denigrates the memory of the murdered Jews during the Nazi era.”

Krause, who is from the town of Unna in Germany, was suspended from his school once before for remarks about the Nazis. During a rally in 2012 for the far-right “Pro-NRW” group, he grabbed the microphone and said, “As a practicing homosexual I have more fear of Islamists then, for example, [I would have at the time of] the Nazis.”
