Israel comes to halt to remember Holocaust victims

There is a broad-based consensus among Americans that schools must be responsible for providing comprehensive Holocaust education, according to the survey.

In Poland on Thursday, thousands of young Jews from around the world are set to march from the Auschwitz to Birkenau death camps in Poland on Thursday to commemorate the 6 million Jews killed in the Holocaust.

Also, while the vast majority of historians believe that approximately six million Jews were exterminated in the Holocaust, almost one-third of all Americans (31%) and more than four-in-ten Millennials (41%) believe that only two million Jews or fewer were killed in the Holocaust.

While 41 percent of all USA adults were able to identify Auschwitz, two-thirds of millennials polled - 66 percent - could not identify the infamous death camp.

Are you in awe of the seemingly countless endeavors to familiarize Americans with the Holocaust?

The poll also found that 70 percent of those surveyed believe that fewer people seem to care about the Holocaust as much as they used to.

The Holocaust Remembrance Day is marked in Israel with solemnity, decades after the liberation of Nazi extermination camps built by Germany during World War II to terminate millions of Jews and others who were considered by the Nazis as sub-humans.

Just over two thirds (68%) thought that anti-Semitism was present in the USA, half believed there were many neo-Nazis in the country, and most people thought it was important to continue teaching about the Holocaust and that it should be compulsory in schools.

Among the study's findings on the latter point is that 93% of respondents believed that all students should learn Holocaust material in school, with 80% saying that a major reason to do so is to prevent such a thing from happening again.

The study also revealed that nearly half of Americans (45%) can not name a single concentration camp, with an even higher percentage among adults aged 18-34. "There remain troubling gaps in Holocaust awareness while survivors are still with us; imagine when there are no longer survivors here to tell their stories".

"We say 'Never Forget, ' but the people who were murdered are literally being forgotten as we speak", says Greg Schneider, Executive Vice President of the Claims Conference, the organization behind a new study showing just how that forgetting is happening. Respondents were selected at random and constituted a demographically representative sample of the adult population in the United States.
