Ceremony in New City remembers lives lost in the Holocaust

Among the notable results, the study found that over one-fifth (22%) of young Americans have never heard about the Holocaust or were unsure what it was. Forty-one percent did not know what Auschwitz was.

The Nazis killed some 1.1 million people at the camp, mostly Jews, but also Russians, Gypsies, Poles and members of other nationalities.

While 41 percent of all US adults were able to identify Auschwitz, two-thirds of millennials polled - 66 percent - could not identify the infamous death camp. The Nazis also murdered millions of Eastern European civilians, Soviet prisoners of war, disabled people, homosexuals and political prisoners.

The Israeli leader compared the aggression of Adolf Hitler's Nazi regime, which systematically killed six million Jews, to Iran and said neither were sufficiently challenged by Western powers.

Nearly half (45 percent) of Americans were unable to name a single concentration camp, and the number was even worse for millennials (49 percent). Two-thirds of Millennials (66%) had no idea what Auschwitz was. The death camp is one of the most infamous ones that existed in Nazi-ruled Europe, and its name has become synonymous with the genocide. Sixty-eight percent of USA adults said anti-Semitism exists today, and 34 percent said there are many neo-Nazis now present in the U.S.

Mohamed Salah: Jurgen Klopp makes transfer statement over Liverpool star
City manager Pep Guardiola has named a back-3 as he looks to overturn that 3-goal deficit in a hugely attacking side. That was the case in Barcelona, at Bayern and now in Manchester.

These figures are especially concerning given the reported rise in hate group numbers, activity and confidence in recent years. The number of neo-Nazi groups increased from 99 in 2016 to 121 in 2017, the center said.

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. In addition, most Americans (80%) have not visited a Holocaust museum.

Despite the lack of historical knowledge, the survey found a desire for Holocaust education - 93 percent said that all students should learn about the Holocaust in school.

"This study underscores the importance of Holocaust education in our schools", said Greg Schneider, Executive Vice President of the Claims Conference.

Poland, Israel and the USA on Wednesday mark Holocaust Remembrance Day with a ceremony at the U.S. state department. We must ensure that the history of the Holocaust remains forever relevant and that no people suffer these tragedies ever again. Respondents were selected at random and constituted a demographically representative sample of the adult population in the United States.
