    1/5 UK Children Think Auschwitz is a Theme Park, 1/10 Think Hitler a Soccer Manager

    Source: International Business Times (UK) (11-5-09)
    A survey conducted by a veterans charity has found startling evidence that school children are increasingly ignorant of the history of the Second World War, with one in twenty believing Adolf Hitler to be a former national football team coach of Germany and one in six thinking that Auschwitz is a theme park.

    The survey, conducted by Erskine, which takes care of around 1,350 war veterans, asked 2,000 children aged nine to 15 a number of questions about the Second World War and got some astonishing results.

    One in six of respondents said they thought that Auschwitz is a theme park based on the Second World War. One in 20 said that the Holocaust was the celebration of the end of the war, whilst one in ten said they believed that the SS were Enid Blyton’s Secret Seven...

    I guess this will be another opportunity for more Holocaust remembrance/education/awareness or whatever it is they call it these days, plus a school visit to Auschwitz.

    Hitler a soccer manager?
    Could it be possible that some children made fun of the survey and answered like that on purpose?

    Polls like this keep coming up every now and then to 'shock' people about how 'dumb' we are now, I don't think it's a big deal. 50 years ago 1 in 6 wouldn't know FA. 100 years ago 5 in 6 probably couldn't read or write . Only a few 'elite' can really have an in-depth knowlege of any period of time.

    What does matter is events from the past which only a few fully understand, being used as a stick to beat any 'nationalist' feeling (as 'evil nazi' etc). While the bigger killings done by 'equalitarian' movements like the soviets, Chinese communists or Khmer Rouge don't get used to stop 'lefties'. Even the allies in WWII were worse than Mussolini's Fascists ever were, but 'fascists' are the most evil and brutal, in folk myth .

    I think Hitler would have made a great football manager, btw

    Well observed

    One in 20 said that the Holocaust was the celebration of the end of the war
    Run by Holocaust™ think tank, which still celebrates WWII in a so boring and repititive manner that noone even listens to them anymore
    Ein Leben ist nichts, deine Sprosse sind alles
    Aller Sturm nimmt nichts, weil dein Wurzelgriff zu stark ist
    und endet meine Frist, weiss ich dass du noch da bist
    Gefürchtet von der Zeit, mein Baum, mein Stamm in Ewigkeit

    Yes, the German attack has improved since he began managing them. They have a tactic in which they defeated Poland convincingly within 18 minutes, they call it 'Blitzkrieg'.
    -In kalte Schatten versunken... /Germaniens Volk erstarrt / Gefroren von Lügen / In denen die Welt verharrt-
    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    (Heimdalls Wacht, In kalte Schatten versunken, stanzas 4-6)
