Commemorating the Days of Holocaust Remembrance

Human RightsCommemorating the Days of Holocaust Remembrance

During this week of National Holocaust Remembrance, we remember the six million Jews who were murdered by the Nazis and their collaborators, as well as the millions of others, including Roma, LGBTQI+ persons, Slavs, and persons with disabilities who were persecuted and killed.  Holocaust survivors and their families are a testament to courage and resilience.  They are a living rebuke to those who sought to extinguish the future of the Jewish people and to those who try to distort or deny the Holocaust.  Nazis and their collaborators engaged in murder on an unprecedented scale, systematically killing people simply because they were different.  May we never forget the harrowing lessons of the Holocaust as we recommit ourselves to ensuring such horrors are never again perpetrated, suffered, or witnessed by humankind.
