Holocaust Stupidity and Denial

What kind of clueless people are these?  Deborah R. Lipstadt writes, "After decades spent in the sewers of anti-Semitism and Holocaust denial, I don’t horrify easily. But yesterday I learned that a school district in Rialto, California, assigned 2,000 8th-grade students to write an essay on whether or not they believe the Holocaust was 'an actual event in history, or merely a political scheme.'  Put simply, this is the greatest victory for Holocaust denial in well over a decade, if not more."

And here's another example of people never taught about plain decency, and the difference between right and wrong: "Visitors to Auschwitz Are Stealing ‘Souvenirs’. Vandals are also scratching their names onto bunks at the concentration camp."
