Jerry Amernic, author of The Last Witness, asked university students in Toronto some very simple questions about the Holocaust and World War II. Their answers demonstrate a remarkable ignorance of some of the most important events of the 20th century. The students couldn’t answer even the most basic questions, like how many Jews died in the Holocaust or who perpetrated the atrocities. They were also clueless about D-Day and they didn’t know who FDR or Churchill were.
Makes you wonder if they have Common Core in Canada.
