BBC: 45% of Britons have never heard of Auschwitz

Nearly half of Britons have never heard of Auschwitz, a poll conducted by the BBC revealed Thursday.

Over on the Jerusalem Post there is an article about the recent BBC poll which revealed that 45% of Britons have never heard of Auschwitz.

Now having done history GCSE I can tell you that does not surprize me I don't remember it ever being talked about the only aspect of the war we where concerned with where the trigger points which started the war.

Now most people don't go on to do History as a GCSE and as I remember at the time we where told that if we failed and had to redo it, then we would have to learn about the war of the rose's as the syllabus was changing.
