Young people think Holocaust education is important

Cincinnati Enquirer – Sarah L. Weiss |

A survey released earlier this month found that 80% of millennial respondents believe it is important to continue teaching about the Holocaust. While this aspect of the survey reflects a willingness and commitment to learn from the past on the part of millennials, the general public and media chose to focus on different aspects of the survey – like the fact that almost two-thirds of millennials and Gen Zers do not know that six million Jews were killed in the Holocaust, and almost half do not know the name of any concentration camp.
