Brits bomb the memory of a million victims...

LONDON (AFP) - Nearly half of Britons have never heard of the Nazi concentration camp of Auschwitz in southern Poland, according to a BBC television poll that was conducted just ahead of the 60th anniversary of the camp's liberation.

Forty-five percent of the 4,000 people questioned for the survey by BBC Two said they had never heard of the Auschwitz-Birkenau camp, the television channel said Thursday.

Y'know what? Maybe somebody should remind them of the Nazi bombs that were dropped over London sixty-somethin' years ago.

Wait. Battle of Britain? I've never heard of it.
