The punishment? It was relentless. Everyday, all day when I went to school.
English was OK. French? My Lord, I got beaten to death every day. My little sister left the school together with her best friend. I stayed and experienced… the abuse.
My History teacher, my Social science teacher, my Physics and Chemistry teacher, my French and Swedish teacher (beaten to death every singe class), my gGeography teacher (was a kind msn and so was the vice principle) and my English teacher (that we used to make fun of…).
The thing is that my mother went to the very same school and her little sister (my aunt) did so as well, we the same school and the same mad teachers.

“- No, they are my head teachers.”
“- Is W**** still around? That is completely bonkers. He/she is crazy”

“- What about her? Surely, I don’t think so…”
“- In 1983 I would have been in 7th grade or 8th and I would have known. The antisemitism aka Nazism, chocked me then and it as shocking to me know. I can never understand that. As my father could never understand it. I know for a fact that she is lying.”
“- I went to the school and I know the ones that were bullied at the time. I’m not telling. But she was not one of them. I tried to protect them as best as I could. She is not telling the truth. Anna is lying.”
“- You can jump of any bridge at any time. But, you are not being truthful and I know this for a fact. I’m not telling. However, I was there.”
“- It is just sad.”
Balkan gymnastics teachers? From Jugoslavia? An elite gymnast (6 foot tall, 180 cm or more, at least or an even taller women. Dressed in adidas three stripes red/white) and a handball professional?
Russian style gymnastic education? There was the punishment, every single day.
“- You need to go to school.”
“- Nu har vi gymnastik!”
“- This does not seem right?” “- Boys, you go shower now!”
“- You will all take a cold shower, now!”
Heter Enskedeskolan fortfarande. Det var 9:an och året var 1985. Jag vet det… därför jag var där, då.
