A study performed by Civita - a Norwegian think tank - found that Norwegian school children lack basic knowledge about the history of totalitarian regimes. Only Hitler and Saddam Hussein got solid recall. Most kids had now idea who Pol Pot was or what kind of a place a Gulag was.
One student thought Hitler and Bush were frighteningly similar.
Some said they had good general knowledge about Germany in the Nazi era, but that extensive discussions on the "suffering of the Jews" were short on actual facts. (I'm struggling hard to omit editorial comments here).
