One in 20 UK schoolchildren think Adolf Hitler was a coach of the German football team, a survey has revealed. And one in six youngsters said they thought Auschwitz was a Second World War theme park.

The survey for a veterans' charity also found one in 10 thought the SS stood for Enid Blyton's Secret Seven, and one in 12 believed that the Blitz was a clean-up after the Second World War. Scottish based charity Erskine, which provides nursing and medical care for veterans, said it would now educate schoolchildren. The charity questioned 2,000 children aged nine to 11. Major Jim Panton, chief executive of Erskine, said: "As we approach Remembrance Day it is hard to believe that 40 per cent of our children do not know when it is." [end quote]
