Isn't there an entire legacy there of bloodshed and misery? Meh. History didn't really start until the Millennials were born, which is why they never even bother learning about it, and thereby learning from it.
On the other hand, I was born at the tail end of the Baby Boom. I was in Germany when the Berlin Wall fell, and was later stationed in former Soviet Union countries during the rest of the Cold War. My wife and her family escaped communist Cuba. I know what I’m talking about.
