Not surprised you missed Tito (Yugoslav) - he wasn't on there! Assume you meant Tojo!! P.S. me too - I knew it was To_o, but never tried j.

How in the hell is it possible that the holocaust is the least known answer? That's downright disturbing.

I'm guessing most people are like me, - of course we know about the holocaust, we've just never heard it called "The Shoah".

It is not a question about the 'Holocaust', it is a question about 'Shoah'. ..... Likewise if the answer to the Nazi Secret Police had been 'Geheime Staatspolizei'........ not many jetpunkers would have got it right.

Shoah took me the longest too but I got it. For those that have never seen it I can recommend the French documentary Shoah https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shoah_(film)#Critical_response widely accepted as the greatest doco ever made
