Sirens blare as Israel comes to a halt to remember Holocaust victims

The study, conducted by the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany, interviewed 1,350 American adults in February. The Strahl in there might sound unusual, and that's because it's actually a surname - one that belonged to his wife's grandparents, who were both Holocaust survivors.

Twenty-two percent of millennials said they haven't heard of the Holocaust or are not sure whether they've heard of it - twice the percentage of US adults as a whole who said the same. The Nazis also murdered millions of Eastern European civilians, Soviet prisoners of war, disabled people, homosexuals and political prisoners.

The number of Jews around the world is lower than before World War II, Israel's Central Bureau of Statistics said Wednesday ahead of the Jewish State's annual Holocaust Remembrance Day.

The good news is that Holocaust denial was nearly nonexistent, with 96 percent believing the tragedy happened.

Forty-five percent of all respondents could not name a concentration camp or ghetto from World War II, and 41 percent could not identify Auschwitz, a network of Nazi concentration and extermination camps. "There are places where you can learn about the Holocaust all over the country".

Of those aware of the Holocaust, one third of all Americans and over four in 10 millennials believe that only two million Jews or less were killed.

While 41 percent of all US adults were able to identify Auschwitz, two-thirds of millennials polled - 66 percent - could not identify the infamous death camp. Perhaps because respondents feel that lack of knowledge is a real threat to the future: 58 percent said they believe something like the Holocaust could happen again. Meanwhile, a research project started in 2000 by investigators with the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, found in 2013 that from 15 to 20 million people had died or been imprisoned at a range of Holocaust-related sites. He's backed by survey respondents, 93% of whom said it was important to teach about the Holocaust in schools.

The group's executive vice president, Greg Schneider, said the study's findings highlighted the importance of Holocaust education.
