Wasserman Schultz Statement on Holocaust Remembrance Day

“On Yom Hashoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day, we honor the memory of the six million Jews and millions of other social and ethnic minorities who were systematically murdered by the Nazi regime in the worst genocide in human history.

We also honor the living victims of this unspeakable mass crime and are mindful that as the last generation of Holocaust survivors pass from this world, our moral responsibility to keep their memories alive becomes even more sacred and vital.

Every citizen of this nation and of the world has a role to play in fighting the abhorrent resurgence of anti-Semitism and bigotry wherever and whenever it rears its ugly head. The sacred promise of ‘Never Again’ must motivate us this day and every day as we confront hatred and violence, and protect the weak and persecuted.

May the memory of the holy be for a blessing. ZK”L.”
