When It Comes to the Holocaust, Atheists Know a Lot More Than Christians

Here’s the good news: Most Americans accept the reality of the Holocaust. Most Americans can also tell you what the Holocaust was — if not precisely, then something at least close.
And according to a new survey from the Pew Research Center, atheists and agnostics are as knowledgeable about the Holocaust as Jews — and all of those groups know far more than Christians.
Yes, regrettably the Holocaust did occur.
Yes, the Death Toll from " The Final Solution" was terrible and completely inexcusable.
However, and by NO means am I a denier btw, according to my very Good Friend, Ytzaak, a Jew who survived Auschwitz at the tender age of just 10 years old at the time, the estimation of 6.000.000 Murdered Jews may well be an over-estimation when considering that the Nazis branded everyone who was placed in those horrible camps as being the same, i.e. the Untermensch.
And, post the Liberations of these Death Camps, many claimed Jewish heritage/lineage rather than admitting to be of other non-Jewish nationalities, etc, in efforts to gain from the Allies some form/s of recognition, etc, etc. including so form/s of compensations as well.
Though, as told to me by Ytzaak, the Nazis were very strict record keepers they made little or no distinction between Jews and others who were condemned to these 'Slaughter-houses,' they simply tattooed EVERYONE the same upon arrival.
Hence, the Toll may well be either higher or lower in relation to the numbers of actual Jews murdered but we will never truly know for absolute certainty what the Death Toll was EXCEPT that the TOTAL Estimated Death Toll, including Jews, Poles, Czechs, French, Belgians, Russians, etc, etc, is somewhere in the vicinity of 15-15.5 MILLION people, men, women, disabled, mentally ill, etc, etc and children.
And MANY Christians, even to this day, still INSIST that the Jews "got exactly what they deserved since THEY were the Christ Killers."
And, historically speaking here, they ARE 100% incorrect SINCE Jewish Law at the ASSUMED time of the Mythical Execution of the equally Mythical Jesus HAD NO Law that allowed a MAN to be put to Death other than by stoning, hence the Priests of the Temple, according to the Myth, FORCED the Roman Governor, under threat of a Hebrew Uprising, to execute the Mythical Jesus as an Insurgent, Rebel and leading Antagonist in the Plot to usurp the Throne of the Emperor of the Roman Empire.
A threat that, btw, came to fruition later when Caligula smothered Tiberius and became Emperor of Rome, an event that had NOTHING to do what-so-ever with the Hebrews at all.
According to Ytzaak, MANY Jews to this day STILL insist that and deny the existence of Jesus both as the Messiah and the assumed son of God.
And, today, by coincidence, I will finish my second of Viktor Frankl's books, this one called "Yes to Life, in Spite of Everything."
I expect that the Christians think that they already know everything of importance in the universe, and do not read, or research, real stuff. They probably do not know that Christians were marked for death as well as Jews, and others.
