BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (CIRCA) — A Nazi flag hung inside a high school classroom in California is sparking controversy on social media.
A mother tweeted out a photo of what appeared to be a hanging Nazi flag inside the classroom.
Roxie Hartline said it was hung there because “they’re studying the Holocaust.”

The flag has been removed according to KERO.
