More, according to a survey, one in six British students think that Auschwitz is a theme park of the Second World War.

The symbol of Remembrance Day should be represented, for 12% of students surveyed, not by red poppies, but by the golden arches of a fast food company and 40% of students do not know that it is celebrated on November 11.

A quarter of the children said that the nuclear bomb was launched over the City of Pearl Harbor, and one of 20 believed that the Holocaust was the festivities at the end of the war.

Surprising results are getting worse: half of the children surveyed knew that “D Day” was representing the landing in Normandy, while one quarter believing that it is a British holiday – “Dooms Day”.

The study was conducted on a sample of 2,000 children whit ages between 9 and 15 years, and included questions about both world wars.

The soccer grannies


It seems that the euphoria of World Cup 2010 has included even the women of South Africa. More female teams are playing football twice a week.
Poverty and age are no impediment for the 35 women who live near the town of Tzaneen, located 600 km north of Johannesburg.
The Vakhegula (“The Grannies” in the local dialect) are between 40 and 83 years old, and are “fighting” hard at every football match in the female competition.
“I like to play football because it helps us. We used to have a variety of diseases, but now they’re passed. Temperature or other conditions specific to our age disappeared as if by magic … even the doctors are amazed at the results,” explained Nari Baloyi, aged 47 years, one of the team “soft mores”.
