Five per cent of UK adults do not believe the Holocaust took place and one in 12 believes its scale has been exaggerated, a survey of more than 2,000 people was carried out by Opinion Matters for the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust (HMDT) has found.
Almost two-thirds of respondents could not say how many Jews were murdered or "grossly" under-estimated the number.
Sunday (27th Jan) millions of people worldwide will gather to mark Holocaust Memorial Day.
Survivors, politicians and members of the public will remember the six million Jewish victims of the Holocaust.
In my experience, people don't have a solid understanding of what happened during the Holocaust and that's one of the reasons I am so committed to sharing what happened to me.;; At one of my talks, I met someone who said the Holocaust didn't happen. The only way to fight this kind of denial and anti-Semitism is with the truth - I tell people what happened, what I saw and what I experienced. Education is so important. If we ignore the past, I fear history will repeat itself.
