Children in France Show Knowledge of Scope of the Nazi Crimes

Entries for an essay prize for school children in Paris showed today that an overwhelming majority of the children knew about the scope of Nazi crimes during World War II.

The subject for the annual contest sponsored by the Association of Former Deportees and Concentration Camp Inmates was “What Do You Know About the Concentration Camps of the War?” The 7,000 responses submitted so far showed that the children knew a great deal about France’s travail during the war and about the Nazi record.
