A new survey found a stunning percentage of young American adults believe the Holocaust, in which some six million Jews were murdered, is a “myth.”

The study by YouGov and The Economist surveyed 1,500 people and found that, among those aged 18-29, 20% believe the Holocaust never happened, according to The Jerusalem Post. Seventy-seven of adults over the age of 29 disagreed with the assertion the Holocaust was a “myth.”

Those ages 18-29 “answered in the affirmative more so than any other group” on statements like: “Jews have too much power in America,” “People should boycott Israeli goods and products,” “Israel exploits Holocaust victimhood for its own purposes,” “Israel has too much control over global affairs,” and “the interests of Israelis are at odds with the interests of the rest of the world.”
