A Texas Panhandle teen has filed a civil rights lawsuit against his school for injuries received while playing out a Holocaust reenactment.

Andrew Yara says he was jumped while carrying a classmate on his back. He fell and was seriously hurt.The suit was filed Monday in Amarillo against the Perryton School District, where he is seeking unspecified damages.

In the two-day exercise at Perryton High School the students were split in to two groups, Nazis and Jews. Students playing Jews had to abide by orders given by students representing Nazis. They were told if they disobeyed they would receive a failing grade.
