A branch of the German teachers' union has pulped copies of its September magazine because it included an article advocating a boycott of Israel.
The Education and Science Workers' Union (GEW), in the northern city of Oldenburg, also apologised for making a "big mistake" .
The piece, written by teacher Christoph Glanz, a GEW member, called for a total boycott of the Jewish state. It is believed to be the first instance of a German workers' organisation urging a boycott of Jews and Israel since the Holocaust.
The union has written on its website that it "rejects a boycott of Israel and antisemitic positions".
