"Ten per cent said they were unsure, while eight per cent believed Auschwitz was a country bordering Germany, two per cent said it was a beer, another two per cent said a religious festival and one per cent said a type of bread."

Firstly, I'm not surprised they do not know. History class is generally just a brief skim over a couple hundred years.

Second, they didn't give an option for a concentration camp. So isn't it there fault that they had bad scores?

I wouldn't really call that news...kind of just a funny mishap. It's not like he was building a bronze statue of Hitler in his underpants.

So 23% of kids are retards/holocaust deniers? Not surprising...

Wow, a whopping TWENTY-THREE PERCENT?

Ok, that just means that 77% DO know what Auschwitz is.
#8
Yeah that is retarded if they gave a multiple choice question without the real answer.
oh wait: "The London Jewish Cultural Centre, which commissioned the survey" Hello bias.

They deliberately tricked kids then took it as some kind of scientific proof?

Remember how Britain paid one billion US for the biometric ID cards, but forgot an instrument that can read it?

They fail again.

I doubt that any less kids in GERMANY don't know what Ausschwitz was

EDIT: and also, I doubt that this "statistic" was any different 50 years ago.

I also read an article once that stated that lots of british teenage kids thought that Robin Hood was a real person and that Winston Churchill was a fictional character.

What were the options on the test?

If they did have an answer that basically ment Death camp, than your history program must be ****. My class talked about the Holocaust quite a bit/got to meet a survivor.

How are the World Wars/Holocaust taught in Germany?

Is it more biased? Or is it still taught in a 'neutral' way?
#27
so 135,000 kids out of 4.5 million don't know what Auschwitz is. and the kids range from 11 to 16, background unknown.

there are lies, damn lies, and statistics.
