(Scroll down for video) A Jewish teen boy is traumatized after his classmates at a Chicago, Illinois, public school told him to put on striped pajamas and walk into a burning oven.

Now, Principal Joshua VanderJagt of the Ogden International School has asked to be reassigned after the anti-Semitic bullying among students.

The 14-year-old boy who attends the school located at 1250 W. Erie, told his mother, Lisa Wolf Clemente, that children told him to put on striped pajamas and get into an oven.

Later, the teen’s 8-year-old brother was invited to a game where several students called themselves “Jew Incinerator.” They said that their goal was to put all the Jews in an army camp until they are disposed.

Clemente, who sought the help of the Anti-Defamation League and the Simon Wiesenthal Center, said that her children do not feel safe at school.

Three students were suspended for one day, and were ordered to write letters of apology to the family of the victim.
