A new U.S. survey shows that adults under 40 years of age have a “worrying lack of basic Holocaust knowledge,” with more than 60 per cent failing to realize that six million Jews perished in the slaughter surrounding the Second World War.
The survey, commissioned by the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany, focused on millennials and Generation Z, NBC reports. It showed that as well as lacking basic genocide knowledge, more than one in ten of those asked had never even heard the word “Holocaust.”
