“Just try to remember the concepts of (Texas House Bill) 3979,” Pedy says, referring to the new law, known as HB 3979. “And make sure if you have a book on the Holocaust, you have a protest, it has other perspectives.”

“How do you resist the Holocaust?” A teacher can be heard asking.

“Trust me,” Pedy said in a lengthy recording obtained by NBC. “It has arrived.”

According to a source present there, after the training session was over, a small group of employees exchanged in a hallway.

A NBC News report on the remarks caused an uproar on social media, and district superintendent Len Ledbetter issued an apology to the community:

“I offer my sincere apologies regarding the online article and news that continued today. During a conversation with teachers during last week’s meeting, there was no way to tell from the comments that were made about a terrible event in Holocaust history. Additionally, we believe that there are no two sides to the Holocaust,” the statement read.

“As we continue to work through the implementation of HB 3979, we also understand that this bill does not require a conflicting view on historical facts. As a district, we are clearly articulating our expectations for teachers. Will work to add and once again apologize for any hurt or confusion. This is the reason,” it said.
