New York - One third of Americans believe only 2 million Jews were murdered during the Holocaust and 66% of millennials have never heard of Auschwitz, according to a comprehensive national survey of Holocaust awareness and knowledge among adults in the United States, released  by the Claims Conference, founded to deal with restitution for Holocaust survivors.

Over 45% asked, could not name any of the 40 ghettos or concentration camps present in Europe during the Second World War. That number increases among people born in the 80’s and 90’s of the 20th century.

The study reveals 68% of Americans believe there is anti-Semitism in the US and 37% say neo-Nazi’s exist in large numbers. Seven out of ten say fewer people care about the Holocaust than in the past. A majority (58%) believe a similar event could take place again.

Two similar events, which Paul may have been referring to, was the massacre of 800,000 civilian Tutsis by the savage Hutus in Ruanda, within a 90 day period, in 1994. The Organization of African Unity knew about it, and did nothing as did the UN; also, Bill Clinton knew about it, and did nothing, to save the Tutsis. In addition, in 1975, the Cambodians began (Khmer Rouge) killed over 2,000,000 civilians from 1975-1979. The world has a very short memory, and could care less, unfortunately, about victims of genocide.

A sad combination of cultural darkness, bad education, and apathy.

If they "knew" they might have to do something.
