Newly two-thirds of U.S. young adults unaware 6 million Jews were killed in the Holocaust
Are they even teaching history in school anymore? Holy shit! As a historian, this freaking depresses me.


quote:

Almost two-thirds of young American adults do not know that 6 million Jews were killed during the Holocaust, and more than one in 10 believe Jews caused the Holocaust, a new survey has found, revealing shocking levels of ignorance about the greatest crime of the 20th century.

According to the study of millennial and Gen Z adults aged between 18 and 39, almost half (48%) could not name a single concentration camp or ghetto established during the second world war.


But the worst part?

quote:

Almost a quarter of respondents (23%) said they believed the Holocaust was a myth, or had been exaggerated, or they weren’t sure. One in eight (12%) said they had definitely not heard, or didn’t think they had heard, about the Holocaust.

No room to teach history when your focus is on social justice and critical race theory.

I bet these types are the first to call white people Nazi's for having a different world view.

I have a hard time believing those numbers without a better context provided.

6,000 or 6 million, what does it matter? All's I'm saying is take a look at the smokestacks at auschwitz for yourself

Can you imagine the look of incredulity on their face when they learn all this after reading that Trump is literally Hitler?

So more of them could name a concentration camp than knew 6 million were killed. I'd have figured the opposite.

I simply refuse to believe this. I’m only 26. No way was this even close to glossed over.

I know as history extends you need to fit more in but no way they’re deemphasizing the worlds last truly impactful hot war.

ETA: if they are we are fricked. That was about the last time we saw a truly clear cut battle of good and evil. Everything since then has had tons of nuance and grey to it. No doubt that the Nazis had to be stopped especially knowing what we learned as their empire crumbled.

You shouldn't be. Our public education system in this country is the laughing stock of the rest of the western world.

I'd like to see the actual questions and how they were framed.

How else could you have so many spewing the "Drumpf is literally Hitler" bs?

Even thought I was only 12 at the time, I got the same bone chilling feeling at Dachau that I did when I walked the grounds of Shilo in Tennessee. I could "hear" the ghosts of the dead.

Both are in the top 3 of the creepiest/eeriest places I've visited in my 50+ years (#3 was a legit haunted house and this is coming from a scientist who believes (almost) all "supernatural phenomenon" can be explained via scientific means...)
