"94 Maidens"

It is absolutely amazing to find that many of today's Pennsylvania public school graduates have little idea about the Holocaust and WWII. While it is a small sampling, Rhoda Fink-Whitman interviewed students presently attending four universities in Pennsylvania, about WWII, the Holocaust, and genocide in general. What she found is mind boggling! The interview can be found in a video," 94 Maidens-The Mandate", published on YouTube, September, 27, 2013. Watching this reminded me of the interviews that Jay Leno occasionally conducts on his show for entertainment---but sadly, this video reflects a gap in our educational system (at least in Pennsylvania) and is far from amusing. I wonder how similar the results would be in other states--in other countries?
