Still, 58 percent of respondents believe that "something like the Holocaust could happen again".
The study, released on Thursday by The Conference Jewish Material Claims Against Germany, studied the awareness of American adults and millennial about the events of the Holocaust.
The survey found a low awareness of nations other than Germany where the Holocaust occurred: Just 5 to 6 percent of USA adults knew that Jews were killed in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, where 90 percent of the local Jewish populations were murdered.
"The issue is not that people deny the Holocaust; the issue is just that it's receding from memory", said Greg Schneider, the executive vice president of the Claims Conference, which negotiates restitution for Holocaust victims and their heirs.
Over a fifth of millennials in the United States have not heard of or are unsure if they have heard of the Holocaust, a study found. The actual number is estimated to be six million.
The survey also found that most believe there is still strong anti-semitic sentiment in the United States today, more than 70 years after the Holocaust.
