DISGUSTING: 2/3s Of Millennials Do Not Know What Auschwitz Is

According to a new survey released on Thursday by the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany, fully 41 percent of Americans don’t know what Auschwitz was, including two-thirds of Millennials. Approximately 22 percent of Millennials had not heard of the Holocaust, and 41 percent of Millennials thought 2 million or fewer Jews were murdered during the Holocaust.

This is troubling stuff.

It’s also informative, because it helps explain just why younger Americans seem so comfortable embracing identity politics and large, intrusive government. If you’d never heard of the genocide of the Jews by an all-encompassing state focused laserlike on race-based differences between people, you might be warmer to the notion that racial hierarchies in politics ought to exist. You might also be warmer to the claims of genocidal Islamist terror groups who claim that Israel is a land of victimizers. And if you’d never heard of the Soviet Union, you might be more sanguine about the possibility of socialism in the United States.

This is just one reason why teaching of history in America’s public schools matters so much. But that teaching in recent decades has revolved not around signal events in world history, but around the revisionist histories of Leftist advocates like Howard Zinn, who focus in tremendous detail on the sins of America without spelling out the true history of alternatives to the American way throughout the 20th century.

  6. we who surviced the WWII have created the entitled generation, every effort was made for these lids who are now in their 50’s not have worries. So, Instead of Mario Lanza we have wrapppppppp ppppp
    and people like Merill Street can speak without any conscience as to the effect, on the generation who paid to see her films. No More, Say No More, put up the wall, and those who have not bothered to notice the changes the past 15 years, are not taught the difference between a democracy, a republic, communism aaaaat alllllll. We need teachers not marketing degreed people who can not find other jobs. Mr Sorroros and cronies should be endited for treason, so should Hillary and Associates. they have sold this country down the path of defeat and it is only a couple hundred years old.
