He says the Holocaust is a reminder of how people can lose sight of others' humanity.

While 11% of Americans adults interviewed said they were unaware or unsure of what the Holocaust was, that figure was double among respondents aged 18 to 34. "People may not know the details themselves, but they still think it's important".

Schoen Consulting, commissioned by The Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany, conducted more than 1,350 interviews and found that 11 percent of US adults and more than one-fifth of millennials either haven't heard of, or are not sure if they have heard of, the Holocaust.

Despite the grim findings of the survey on Holocaust Remembrance Day, not everyone has forgotten the events that took place at Auschwitz.

Poland's Holocaust law wasn't meant to stifle testimonies about the crimes of World War II, which is a tough subject for Poles, President Andrzej Duda said after meeting his Israeli counterpart at the site of the Auschwitz Nazi concentration camp.

Poland's Andrzej Duda and Israel's Reuven Rivlin joined some 15,000 people - mostly young Jews from around the world and some camp survivors - in a three-kilometer (two-mile) walk from the infamous "Arbeit macht frei" ("Work sets you free") gate to the site of the gas chambers. "More than seven decades since the liberation of Nazi concentration and death camps, the horrors of the Holocaust continue to haunt our world in the lives cut short, the dreams unfulfilled and in the enduring pain of those who survived".

"Not for nothing we describe the death camps as the camps of Nazis and their helpers", Rivlin said.

The solemn march began near Auschwitz' main gate and the city's watchtowers and covered 2 miles to Birkenau, where Jews from all over Europe were brought to be murdered in gas chambers. "There is no doubt that many Poles fought against the Nazi regime, but we can not deny the fact that Poland and Poles lent a hand to the annihilation" of Jews during the Holocaust, Rivlin said.

"During the Holocaust, we were helpless, defenceless, and voiceless". "The abject brutality of the Nazi regime, coupled with the failure of Western leaders to confront the Nazis early on, created an environment that encouraged and enflamed anti-Semitic sentiment and drove people to engage in depraved, dehumanizing conduct".
