Survey on Holocaust knowledge among young Americans reveals surprising results

In what is believed to be the first nationwide study on Holocaust knowledge among millennials and ’Generation Z’, more than two thirds of young Americans were found not knowing that six million Jewish people were killed in the Holocaust. One in 10 adults under the age of 40 does not believe the Holocaust happened. 11% of the 1000 respondents believe Jewish people caused the Holocaust.

They sound surprised. The general education system doesn’t teach it, there will always be deniers but public schools have lowered their standards and reduced the curriculum to the point where it’s laughable to call it “education”. Give education to the states. I guarantee the majority of them would toss out the current standards and implement higher standards.

How? At least here in Texas we beat kids over the head with the Holocaust. Shoot they even read about it in English class in addition to learning about it in History.
