- 10% don’t think it happened
- 12% had never heard of it
- 11% think the Jews were responsible
- 63% are unaware that 6 million Jews perished
Adults between 18 and 39 (48%) could not name a single concentration camp or ghetto in the second world war.
These facts are astonishing and very disturbing.
On the 16th October 2019, I visited Auschwitz-Birkenau in Oświęcim near Krakow, Poland. It is a place that will haunt me for the rest of my life.
