41% of millennials don't believe 6 millions Jews were killed in Holocaust

A majority, 58 percent, said they believe something like the Holocaust could happen again.

The recent survey also revealed that in spite of their faulty grasp of Holocaust history, Americans believe that Holocaust education is important.

The survey found that almost half of all Americans - 41 percent - couldn't identify Auschwitz, a concentration camp where an estimated 1.1 million Jews and minorities were killed at the hands of Nazis during World War II.

Two-thirds (66 percent) of millennials were unable to explain what Auschwitz was.

One can not ignore Polish collaboration with the Nazis during the Holocaust, Israeli President Reuven Rivlin told his Polish counterpart, Andzrej Duda, in a meeting on Thursday, right before the annual March of the Living at the former death and concentration camp of Auschwitz.

Are you in awe of the seemingly countless endeavors to familiarize Americans with the Holocaust?

It found that there were significant age gaps in knowledge about the Holocaust, with 22 percent of millennials saying they haven't heard or were not sure if they have heard of the Holocaust, compared to 11 percent for all USA adults.




The survey also found that most believe there is still strong anti-semitic sentiment in the United States today, more than 70 years after the Holocaust.

Further, large numbers of respondents believe that there is anti-Semitism in the US today (68 percent) and that there are many neo-Nazis in the USA (34 percent).

"There remain troubling gaps in Holocaust awareness while survivors are still with us; imagine when there are no longer survivors here to tell their stories", Schneider said. "We must be committed to ensuring the horrors of the Holocaust and the memory of those who suffered so greatly are remembered, told and taught by future generations".

The Holocaust was a genocide during World War II in which millions of European Jews were killed by Nazi Germany led by Adolf Hitler, between 1941 and 1945.

The study on Holocaust awareness and knowledge in the US was conducted between February 23 and 27 and involved 1,350 interviews with American adults 18 and older.

Claims Conference President Julius Berman expressed concern about the lack of knowledge about the Holocaust among millennials. Respondents were selected at random and constituted a demographically representative sample of the adult population in the United States.
