An interesting article in today’s harbatkinteachingTimes recalls the communist witch-hunts of the fifties in the New York City School system. One of the teachers mentioned in the article, who was forced out of the classroom because of his suspected affiliation with the Communist Party, was Sidney Harbatkin, seen in this picture obviously sharing some insidious communist knowledge with his young charges.
The interesting thing about the picture is that the students are all boys, and everybody is wearing a kippah. Anybody have any insight into what school this picture was taken at?
