Today is Holocaust Memorial Day.  I performed a song in Yiddish and a song in Hebrew at my synagogue.
I've had three funerals in the last month - one of which I officiated.
I'm pretty close to burn out and figure this is a safe place to vent.

I read in the newspaper that 66% of american 18-35 dont know what Auschwitz is against 41% of americans of all age, 52% american think Hitler took power by force as well. These numbers are frighting.

If we don't know the past, how can we understand it?

It's sad, but modern young people don't know anything but how to whine about everything.   

Back when Tony Blair was PM of the UK, they brought in Civics and there was a TV show hosted by John Prescott, the then Deputy PM.   Anyway, in the very first episode, they had 2 girls that got A*** (over exaggerated perfect score) in the class.   They had no idea who they were talking to and when asked, they said they thought he was Churchill.

Jamie Oliver did a TV series about kids eating healthy food and the kids had no idea what 90% of the stuff was, including common items like apple and potatoes.
