Poll: Some Canadians question Holocaust numbers
[Since when is 1/6 simply some Canadians?]
ONE in six Canadians believe fewer than 1 million Jews perished in the Holocaust, according to a new survey.
The survey was conducted in December 2004 by Environics Canada at the request of the Montreal-based Association of Canadian Studies. The association will hold a symposium and memorial service on Thursday, in conjunction with the Montreal Holocaust Memorial Centre, to mark the 60th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz. The survey of 2,021 people had a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percent.
The times they are a changin'.
