Holocaust knowledge among Millennials and Gen Z
As I am beginning my time in college, I have worried about Holocaust denial. This is a visual representation of the worrying lack of Holocaust knowledge among millennials and Gen Z sourced from a 2020 survey from the Claims Conference.
Here is a quote from Deborah Lipstadt, former professor of modern Jewish history and Holocaust studies at Emory University, where I attend, and current Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Antisemitism:
"There is no doubt that Holocaust denial is a form of anti-Semitism, and when we fail to actively remember the facts of what happened, we risk a situation where prejudice and anti-Semitism will encroach on those facts."
