Youngsters surveyed thought Hitler was a German Football manager

When would I have time to manage a football team?

This is just one good reason why you should never give youngsters a survey about World War I & II. Hmm, this is the findings after 2,000 kids aged from 9 to 11 were polled by the veterans’ charity Erskine.1 in 20 thought Hitler was a German football manager, 1 in 6 believed Auschwitz was a Theme Park and 1 in 12 thought the Blitz was a European clean-up operation following the war. Might want to think about bringing history back into the curriculum! Hmm, hang on a minute isn’t it already? Ah, never mind!
