Old News, But Why I Teach

4/12/18 Washington Posthttps://www.washingtonpost.com/amphtml/news/acts-of-faith/wp/2018/04/12/two-thirds-of-millennials-dont-know-what-auschwitz-is-according-to-study-of-fading-holocaust-knowledge/?noredirect=on&__twitter_impression=true&fbclid=IwAR0kWNV40MdrqWI0cI9jBYLOzGsxPjY4Fnds51w0bmSQTGAo-19P-Qz7zjk reports that 2/3 of millenials cannot identify what Auschwitz was, and 22% do not know about the Holocaust.  I am sure this ignorance is not an accident.

Someone posted a question on Quora, 'Why was the Sopwith Camel so deadly in World War 1." My response was " was it truly deadly, or is the Camel remembered because of Snoopy? It is not accidental any more than the changes in science were young people can't do basic math and gender is no longer due to whether you have two X chromosomes or one Y and one X. All you need to do is look at the newest Politicians like Ms. Cortez who was born in 1989, was entering Kindergarden during the Clinton Adm and never knew anything about American history, science, etc if it wasn't approved by the greens/liberals. "We have ten years before Climate Change kills us", which was drummed into her skull 25 years ago.
