The group gathered at the Garden of Remembrance on Martine Avenue to commemorate Yom Hashoah- or Holocaust Remembrance Day. Among millennials, that number rose to 66 percent.

A vast majority of respondents - 93 percent - believe all students should learn about the Holocaust in school and 80 percent said it's important to teach so it does not happen again.

A new, comprehensive national survey of Holocaust awareness and knowledge among adults in the United States, released on the occasion of Holocaust Remembrance Day by Schoen Consulting on behalf of the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany (Claims Conference), found that more than half of Americans believe that the Holocaust could happen again.

Israelis stood still on Thursday for a nationwide moment of silence in remembrance of the 6 million Jewish victims of the Holocaust, as a two-minute siren wailed across the country and the nation paid respects to those systematically killed by Nazi Germany and its collaborators in World War II.

Six million Jews were killed in the Holocaust during World War II, many of them in gas chambers in Nazi death camps. Many were moved to concentration camps, ghettos and detention sites. Twenty-two percent of millennials, for instance, said they had not heard of, or were unsure if they had heard of the Holocaust, compared to 11 percent of all adults.

Mercy County Prosecutor George Sitler advised the MetroNews that "in line with the criticism, that was a decapitation homicide". The complaint said Mills was White's father's girlfriend but noted that Mills went home with White the night before the murder.

Just over two thirds (68%) thought that anti-Semitism was present in the U.S., half believed there were many neo-Nazis in the country, and most people thought it was important to continue teaching about the Holocaust and that it should be compulsory in schools.

The survey, conducted by Shoen Consulting on behalf of The Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany (Claims Conference) found that 11 percent of USA adults and 22 percent of millennials "haven't heard" or "are not sure if they have heard of the Holocaust". "There is no doubt that many Poles fought against the Nazi regime, but we can not deny the fact that Poland and Poles lent a hand to the annihilation" of Jews during the Holocaust, Rivlin said.

Americans have "a moral obligation to combat anti-Semitism, confront hate and prevent genocide", President Donald Trump said in a proclamation issued for Yom Hashoah, Israel's Holocaust Remembrance Day.

"Imagine when there are no longer survivors here to tell their stories", he says, stressing the importance of Holocaust education. "We must be committed to ensuring the horrors of the Holocaust and the memory of those who suffered so greatly are remembered, told and taught by future generations". A February report from the Southern Poverty Law Center claimed that the number of hate groups in the USA has increased by 20 percent over the past three years. "We are alarmed that today's generation lacks some of the basic knowledge about these atrocities".
