US millenials and the Holocaust

A sad but not surprising poll in the US of millenials (age 18 to 39) on the Holocaust. Some findings:

  • 12% had not heard of the Holocaust
  • 11% though Jews were the cause of the Holocaust
  • Only 44% could name Auschwitz when asked for the names of any concentration camps
  • Only 35% have heard of Oscar Schindler
  • Only 37% knew six million Jews were killed during the Holocaust. 10% thought more and 36% fewer.
  • 3% do not believe the Holocaust happened
