Almost one-third of American adults believe that significantly less than 6 million Jews were murdered in the Holocaust, according to a recent survey.

The survey, conducted by Schoen Consulting on behalf of the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany, found that 70% of U.S. adults say fewer people seem to care about the Holocaust than they used to. 58% believe something like the Holocaust could happen again.

According to the survey, 11% of all U.S. adults and 22% of Millennials haven't heard of, or are not sure they have heard of the Holocaust. In addition, 31% of U.S. adults and 41% of Millennials believe that 2 million Jews or less were killed during the Holocaust. Forty-five % of adults and 49% of Millennials could not name a concentration camp or ghetto. Similarly, 41% of adults did not know what Auschwitz was, while a full 66% of Millennials were unable to identify Auschwitz.

The survey did, however, point to a desire for Holocaust education and improvement in the quality of Holocaust curriculum. Most U.S. adults, 93%, believe all students should learn about the Holocaust in school, and 80% said it is important to keep teaching about the Holocaust so it doesn't happen again, according to Arutz-7.
