'One in five young Germans in dark about Auschwitz'

    Sixty-seven years after the liberation of Auschwitz, one in five young Germans remain clueless about where the concentration camp was located.

    Ten per cent of those surveyed for Germany's Stern news magazine were unaware that Auschwitz, where 1,100,000 Jews and non-Jews perished, was a concentration camp.

    And 20 per cent of the 18-29 year olds questioned did not know that the camp was situated in Poland.

    The results follow another survey earlier this week which revealed that some 20 per cent of Germans still displayed signs of latent antisemitism.

    Last year was a record year for visitors to the site of Auschwitz, with more than 1.4 million people going to see the infamous gates and barracks.
