A 1992 survey

  1. 1. A 1992 survey caused a great furor when it claimed that 1/3 of Americans doubted or weren’t sure the Holocaust ever occurred! Could this be true?<br />
  2. 2. The question—how would you answer this?<br />As you know, the term Holocaust usually refers to the killing of millions of Jews in Nazi death camps during World War II. Does it seem possible or does it seem impossible to you that the Nazi extermination of the Jews never happened?<br />
  3. 3. The result<br />20% of Americans doubted the Holocaust ever occurred <br />12% weren’t sure<br />Conclusion: 1/3 of America doesn’t believe the Holocaust occurred!!!<br />
  4. 4. Re-survey with edited question<br />Do you doubt the holocaust happened, or not?<br /> 9% doubted<br /> 4% not sure<br />(Taken from Instructor’s Resources, by Martin Bolt, Worth Publishers 2007, page 5.)<br />
