Mayor of London Sadiq Khan will join hundreds in London this Sunday to mark Yom HaShoah, marking Israel's Holocaust Remembrance Day. Among millennials, that number rose to 66 percent. He's backed by survey respondents, 93% of whom said it was important to teach about the Holocaust in schools.
At least 70 percent of those surveyed feel that "fewer people seem to care about the Holocaust as much as they used to" and 58 percent believe that "something like the Holocaust could happen again". Twenty-two percent of millennials, for instance, said they had not heard of, or were unsure if they had heard of the Holocaust, compared to 11 percent of all adults.
The survey, which was commissioned by the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany (also known as the Claims Conference), found that many Americans were unaware of basic facts about the Holocaust.
In a speech in on the eve of Holocaust Remembrance Day on Wednesday, Rivlin cemented that "no country can or should legislate the forgetting of Jews murdered during the Holocaust", apparently referring to the controversial law. They also persecuted and murdered millions of other Europeans, including Roma and Sinti Gypsies, persons with mental and physical disabilities, Slavs and other minorities, Christians, Jehovah's Witnesses, gays, and political dissidents.
Here's another alarming result of the survey: nearly half of US Adults (45%) and Millennials (49%) can not name even one of the more than 40,000 concentration camps and ghettos in Europe during the Holocaust, and more than 4-in-10 (41%) did not know what Auschwitz was.
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.
Just over two thirds (68%) thought that anti-Semitism was present in the U.S., 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.
Holocaust survivors shared their stories with dozens of county dignitaries, religious figures and children. We have a responsibility to convey the lessons of the Holocaust to future generations, and together as Americans, we have a moral obligation to combat antisemitism, confront hate, and prevent genocide. The margin of error is plus or minus 3 percentage points. "We are alarmed that today's generation lacks some of the basic knowledge about these atrocities".
The survey was conducted by Schoen Consulting between February 23-27 with a randomly selected demographically representative sample of 1,350 Americans.
