Third of Israeli youth fears second Holocaust
Holocaust Memorial Day poll carried out by Anti-Defamation League shows Israeli youth well aware of anti-Semitism around the world

On the eve of 2007's Holocaust Memorial Day, a poll showed that 37 percent of Israel's youth feel another Holocaust is possible.

 

The poll on anti-Semitism was conducted among Israeli youth by the Anti-Defamation League.

 

While about a third of the respondents said they felt another Holocaust was a possibility, six percent said there was a significant chance that this may occur.

 

Sixty-two percent of the youth said there was no way another Holocaust would take place and one percent said they were not sure.

 

The survey was conducted among a representative sample of 500 teens aged 15-18.

 

ADL Director Abraham Foxman said that the Israeli youth is well aware of the existence of anti-Semitism even if they don't experience it first hand.

 

Foxman stressed that anti-Semitism is not just a history lesson, but a contemporary phenomenon.
