BELLINGHAM, Wash. – Three quotes in this year’s Lynden High School yearbook come from Adolf Hitler.

Superintendent Jim Frey says three seniors asked to have the quotes placed under their pictures.

“If you want to shine like the sun, first you have to burn like it.”

“He alone, who owns the youth, gains the future.”

“Through clever and constant application of propaganda, people can be made to see paradise as hell, and also the other way around, to consider the most wretched sort of life as paradise.”

Frey says they are investigating how the quotes made it into the book.

 

He says the seniors who requested the quotes are “good kids” and they didn’t intend to support Hitler’s agenda.
