Not the same Choice

Editor, The News:

Re: Trustees call on parents to protest (The News, May 2).

Maple Ridge school board trustee Sarah Nelson called it the “Sophie’s Choice” budget. This in reference to the movie in which a mother and her two children arrive at the Nazi concentration camp Auschwitz. The mother is given a choice as to which one of her children will be gassed. If she does not choose, they both will die. A real “unbearable” choice.

When will educated people stop using the Nazi era and its atrocities to compare our relatively insignificant events?
