    I never relied on the school system to teach my son of things i feel are important, and i sent him to a non-public school.

    I know, right? When I first read the article, I had to make sure it wasn't fake or satire. It is being reported on many news outlets, though. It is, sadly, completely true.

    My father was a 20-year-old kid when he enlisted in 1942.

    He was at one of the concentration camps, a couple of days after it was liberated.

    It kept him awake at nights sometimes for years, and whenever a story about holocaust denier came up he would shake his head, and say that even the Nazi’s would have laughed at the idea that somebody would try to cover up the whole of what they did.

    Same. I thought it must have been some sick joke or parody.

    1/2 the kids are below average. That is 3/6 if children are below acerage.

    4/6 of kids do not know about the holocaust.

    So there really are just 1/6 who should be expected to know about the holocaust who don’t.

    Not just the parents -- some survivors want to forget.

    I lost a big proportion of my Polish family to the Warsaw uprising -- not the Jewish one but the later one where the Russians backdoored us.

    I remember being at my (Polish) grandmother's residence one weekend as a teenager and she had left several books out about Nazi atrocities in Poland. When I started asking questions my dad came into the room and demanded she hide the books 'cause the subject matter was so ugly.

    Later on (couple weeks) I asked her further questions. She said it should be remembered as the the Germans "took Polands blood".

    Systematic erasing of U.S. and world history in public schools! Why? ;)

    It would be nice to remember that during the era of the Holocaust, Nazis also targeted and killed other groups, including children, because of their perceived racial and biological inferiority: Roma (Gypsies), Germans with disabilities, and some of the Slavic people (especially Poles and Russians). Most of the Jews killed by the Nazis were Polish citizens before the outbreak of WW2 in fact. 3 millions exactly. Also 3 millions of the non Jewish Poles were killed by the Nazis in WW2.

    The very people that are shocked that American kids don't know about the holocaust are the same ones that dumbed down our education system.

    1,076,245 American casualties in WWII freeing Jews, the entire European continent and Asians.

    How many American kids know that one?

    Yup...the Nazis killed "undesirables" such as Jews, Poles, Gypsies, gays, and pretty much anyone who didn't fit their "Master Race" model.
