And half of those who do would like another chance at it.

This is not surprising. As time moves further from the date of the Holocaust it becomes more like a myth. It’s hard to believe this could ever happen. That’s why we have the Holocaust Museum in Wash D.C. To remind ourselves that this did happen and could happen again, specially if the Muslim stronghold gets stronger. Their already is a growing antisemitism in Europe and even in America. People have be very careful who they vote into government.

A good percentage of the world’s population doesn’t know anything outside their neighborhood or village. There are still a lot who can’t read.

There are huge swathes of the world where it’s still 978 A.D., except for an occasional cell phone and the glimpse of an airplane. Of course they don’t know about the Holocaust: it hasn’t happened yet, in their time zone.

And the other half hopes that knowing about it will prevent another one. But history shows that mans doesn't learn form history or is unable to extricate himself from the forces that have lead to man-made catastrophic historical events.

So man is caught in a zugzwang.

On one hand, history and historical significance are generally forgotten relatively quickly because generations turn over about every forty years.

One generation passes away, and another generation comes...There is no remembrance of former things; neither shall there be any remembrance of things that are to come with those that shall come after (Ecclesiates 1: 4, 11).

On the other hand, there's a fundamental flaw in man that cannot be corrected apart for the saving grace of Jesus Christ. That uncorrected fundamental flaw causes man to repeat the same mistakes over and over again, even though he may be aware of those historical facts, partly because he cares more about the immediate present than some long-lost historical "lesson". Unfortunately, the elements of flawed personalities and the immediate needs of the popular culture of that day that lead to the holocaust are definitely capable of being repeated.

The issue is really the hearts of men. The answer, individually and collectively, is turn to our Savoir Jesus Christ who is the only one that can fundamentally change the hearts of men.

are we talking about the Democrat Abortion Holocaust? because that one (which is still ongoing) has now killed 10 times more innocents than the Nazi’s did.
