AMARILLO, Texas (AP) -- A teen who says he was injured at his Texas Panhandle high school in a Holocaust role-playing exercise has filed a federal civil rights lawsuit against the school district.
Andrew Yara alleges he was seriously hurt in a fall when he was jumped while carrying a classmate on his back two years ago.
The suit says the annual two-day exercise at Perryton High School teaches students about the Holocaust. Students who play Jews are required to obey demands by classmates playing Nazis -- and will get a failing grade if they don't.
The suit was filed Monday in Amarillo against the Perryton school district, 100 miles to the northeast. Yara, who's now 19, seeks unspecified damages and attorneys' fees.
School district officials didn't return calls for comment Tuesday.
