20% of American 18 to 29 year-olds think Holocaust is a myth: poll

None of those over the age of 65 who were surveyed agreed.

20 percent of US citizens between the ages of 18 and 29 believe that the Holocaust is a myth, a new poll has revealed.

The Economist/YouGov poll conducted between December 2 and December 5, found that in response to the statement “The Holocaust is a myth,” 1 in 5 participants between the ages of 18 and 29 agreed and 30 percent said that they did not agree or disagree.

Only 8 percent of people between the ages of 30-44 and 2 percent of people aged 45-64 agreed with the statement.

None of those over the age of 65 who were surveyed agreed with the statement and only 2 percent over 65 said they neither agreed nor disagreed.

7 percent of Americans overall believe that the Holocaust is a myth, the poll found.

Asked if it is antisemitic to deny that the Holocaust took place, 17 percent of those 18-29 said it wasn’t antisemitic, and 37 percent said they were unsure.

23 percent of those aged 18-29 said that they agreed that “The Holocaust has been exaggerated,” and 26 percent neither agreed nor disagreed.

16 percent of overall respondents agreed with the statement “Jews have too much power in America," 51 percent disagreed and 33 percent said they neither agreed nor disagreed.

28 percent of people aged 18-29 agree that Jews have too much power as did 19 percent of those aged 30-44, 12 percent of people aged 45-64, and 6 percent of people over the age of 65.

29 percent of people over the age of 65 said they didn’t think it was antisemitic to believe that “American Jews are more loyal to Israel than the US,” as did 23  percent of people between the ages of 18-29.

The poll was conducted in the third month of Israel’s war to destroy Hamas following the Hamas massacre on Oct. 7 when Palestinian terrorists raped, tortured, and executed over 1,200 Israelis and kidnapped over 250 more.  

The attack was followed by a spike in antisemitic incidents in the US and around the world.

In response, Washington lawmakers have introduced a bipartisan bill to strengthen Holocaust education in the state’s public schools.

On Monday, Tesla and X CEO Elon Musk visited the Auschwitz concentration camp in Poland with Daily Wire editor emeritus Ben Shapiro.
