A staggering 35% of adults 18 to 39 wrongly believe the Holocaust is a myth or has been exaggerated, or say they don’t think they’ve even heard about it, according to a new study. The level of ignorance is being called “shocking and saddening.”

More than one in 10 (11%) falsely believe the Jews caused the Holocaust, and almost two thirds do not know that 6 million jews were killed by the Nazis during the Holocaust.

“Almost a quarter of respondents (23%) said they believed the Holocaust was a myth, or had been exaggerated, or they weren’t sure. One in eight (12%) said they had definitely not heard, or didn’t think they had heard, about the Holocaust,”

“More than half (56%) said they had seen Nazi symbols on their social media platforms and/or in their communities, and almost half (49%) had seen Holocaust denial or distortion posts on social media or elsewhere online.”

The study was commissioned by the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany, which says it is “the first-ever 50-state survey on Holocaust knowledge among Millennials and Gen Z.”

If jews didn't do overkill on this they'd probably brainwash more people. Younger people will call 'bullshit' quicker than most boomers. Some of the survivor stories are so hilarious you have to call them on it, like the woman who said men had to flap their arms and crow like chickens in trees until they dropped dead.

How much of this is people like us questioning the holocaust vs. Mexicans and other immigrants from 3rd world countries just not knowing about it for lack of education. I really don't believe that too many people who have been "educated" on the holocaust question it at all. The fact that 49% had seen holocaust denial memes is funny though.

I have a fifty year old book that actually mentions this sort of thing, but of course it’s in the context of the Red Army doing it to German prisoners. I had read it well before I heard the anecdote you mentioned, which left me assuming that it was more Jewish projection.

That’s part of the insidiousness of what these people do. All these lies they tell have a tiny little anchor in the truth somewhere, which is why they are able to get traction at all.
