SummaryGolub and Cohen report the results of a major survey — the first ever to exports systematically the degree of knowledge that Americans have about the Holocaust as well as the ways in which Americans view the Holocaust's lessons and implications. The survey findings, the authors make clear, underscore the "serious knowledge gap that exists for both adults and youth in the United States with regard to basic information about the Holocaust." At the same time, however, Golub andC then indicate that a "majority of Americans, both younger and older, recognize the importance of knowing about he Holocaust." —Forward
