Update on the German Homeschoolers

From the American Family Association- Plus More Information From Me

March 23, 2007

Please help us get this information into the hands of as many people as possible by sending it to your entire email list of family and friends.

State police take children from parents. Their crime? They were home schooling their daughter.

Please stand for the God-given right of these parents to freely educate their children as their conscience dictates.

Dear Daniel,

This letter is slightly longer than what I usually write. But I beg you to please read all of it.

How would you feel if a group of 15 fully armed police officers walked into your home, grabbed your 15-year-old daughter, and left without telling you where they were taking her? Not only that, but you soon found out that your daughter was being arrested because she was being home schooled, and she would not be allowed to come home until she was placed in a public school!

This is already a reality for some families —not in America— but in Germany. Melissa Busekros of Erlangen, Bavaria, was taken from her parents, Hubert and Gudrun Busekros. Why worry about this if it isn't in America? Because America is becoming like Europe more and more. Not only that, but here are two families who have nearly no hope that the government will listen to them. I don't like saying this because it seems so extreme, but if we continue on the way we are going this will be happening in America, unless we work to stop it now.

Using the same law, police recently took five "well-educated" children from their parents for the same reason. Police took into legal custody Rosine, Jotham, Kurt-Simon, Lovis and Ernst Brause, the children of Bert and Kathrin Brause. The state will not allow Bert and Kathrin to regain custody of their children unless they agree to place them in a public school.

The judge concluded that the children were well-educated but accused the parents of failing to provide their children with an education in a public school. The judge noted that one of the daughters expressed the same opinions as her father, stating that they have not had the chance to develop "independent personalities!"

Please take the following quote in context. I'm not trying to be an extremist, but a realist. One of the first acts by Adolf Hitler when he gained power in Germany was to create the governmental Ministry of Education and give it control of all schools and school-related issues. In 1937, Hitler said: "This Reich stands, and it is building itself up for the future, upon its youth. And this Reich will give its youth to no one, but will itself take youth and give to youth its (the state's) own education and its own upbringing."

Take Action

1. Please send the e-mail to German officials who have the ability to right this wrong. Your email will be sent to Germany's president and key decision making officials. It will include your name and email address only.

2. Please forward this letter to family and friends and ask them to help these two families in Germany get their children back.

Below is a short German letter I have written:

Sehr geehrte Deutsche Führer,
Ich schreibe über Deutschlands rechtswidrige Verschleppung von Melissa Busekros und die
entsetze Behandlung der deutschen Homeschoolers.

Sicher, es ist zutreffend, daß Deutschland Freiheit geliebt. Sicher, es ist zutreffend, daß Deutschland eine tolerante Nation ist. Sicher, es ist zutreffend, daß Deutschland Naziism zurückweist.

Warum dann Deutschland tut, erzwingen Sie ein Nazigesetz gegen Homeschoolers, wer möchten nur ihre Kinder unterrichten?

Bitte, beheben Sie den Fall von Hubert und von Gudrun Busekros, Eltern von Melisse Busekros von Erlangen, Bayern; und der Fall von Bert und Kathrin Brause von Zittau, Sachsen, und ihre Kinder, Rosine, Jotham, Kurt-Simon, Lovis und Ernst.

Bitte, seien Sie ein Führer. Tun Sie, was recht ist, um dieser Familien willen, und für die deutschen Leute!

Bitte tun Sie, was wum dieser Familien, und um der deutschen Leute, willen recht ist!

Daniel Christianson

(English Translation)
Dear honored German Leaders (with slight connotation to Hitler by the address),

I am writing about Germany's illegal kidnapping of Melissa Busekros and the shocking treatment of German homeschoolers.

Surely, it is true that Germany loves freedom. Surely, it is true that Germany is a tolerant nation. Surely, it is true that Germany rejects Naziism.

Why then does Germany enforce a Nazi law against homeschoolers, who only wish to teach their children?

Please, resolve the case of Hubert and Gudrun Busekros, parents of Melissa Busekros of Erlangen, Bavaria; and the case of Bert and Kathrin Brause of Zittau, Saxony, and their children, Rosine, Jotham, Kurt-Simon, Lovis and Ernst.

Please, do what is right, for the sake of these families, and for the German people!

Daniel Christianson

Also, Here are the actual addresses for more German officials.

Also, I now have the address to write Melissa directly (as of February 2007. She may have been moved since then).

Melissa Busekros
Klinikum Nürnberg-Nord
Haus 48 B
Prof.-Ernst-Nathan-Str. 1
90419 Nürnberg
