Sunrise, FL – Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL-23) released the following statement today regarding International Holocaust Remembrance Day:

International Holocaust Remembrance Day is a time to honor the memories of the six million Jews and other stigmatized groups who were systematically murdered by the Nazis during the worst genocide in human history. We have an obligation to also remember the countless victims of the Nazi regime who were raped, enslaved, and separated from their families.

As the last generation of Holocaust survivors pass from this world, our moral responsibility to keep their memories alive becomes even more sacred and significant. In communities at home and abroad, the abhorrent resurgence of anti-Semitism and bigotry makes that mission more urgent and vital than ever.

The solemn promise of ‘Never Again’ must motivate us each day to confront hatred and protect the weak and the persecuted.

May the memory of the righteous be a blessing. Z”KL.
