Almost two-thirds of millennials and Gen Zers don't know that 6 million Jews were killed in the Holocaust, and almost half can't name a single concentration camp, an alarming new survey on Holocaust knowledge has found.For more details, see the Guardian and Pew polls.
The survey demonstrated wide gaps in younger American's knowledge of the genocide while also showing a concerning 15% of millennials and Gen Zers thought holding neo-Nazi views was acceptable.
"How much of that is based on genuine understanding of neo-Nazis principles and how much is based on ignorance is hard to tell. Either of them is very disturbing," said Gideon Taylor, president of the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany, which commissioned the survey. ...
In New York, for example, which ranked among the bottom 10 states in an analysis of Holocaust knowledge, nearly 20% of millennials and Gen Zers incorrectly believe that Jews caused the Holocaust.
That sort of denial and distortion around the causes of the Holocaust "is a form of anti-Semitism," said Gretchen Skidmore, the director of education initiatives for the Levine Family Institute for Holocaust Education at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. ...
Jews and other groups were targeted by the Nazis and their allies on beliefs of perceived racial inferiority.
These surveys are meaningless without some controls, such as asking Americans to find Canada on a map or asking Jews to name some miracles that Jesus Christ performed.
It is odd that the most Jewish state, New York, would score so poorly.
I don't know how anyone would know how many Jews were killed in the Jewish Holocaust, as most European countries have laws against historical treatments that deviate from accepted stories.
The article spreads more misinformation. It is not really true that Jews were targeted for being inferior. That is just Jewish propaganda. You can find out the truth by reading the Wikipedia articles on Jewish Bolshevism and Mein Kampf. I don't want to say it here, because I don't want my blog banned in Europe.
