WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman John Sarbanes (D-Md.) released the following statement in observance of Yom HaShoah:

“Today, we honor the memory of the six million Jewish victims of the Holocaust and reaffirm our commitment to never forget this unconscionable crime against humanity.

“Somber remembrances, like Yom HaShoah, are an important opportunity to ensure that, as painful as it is, the terrible legacy of the Holocaust is understood by our children and grandchildren. Amid an alarming rise in hate crime, bigotry and antisemitism, these moments also help bring our communities together in a collective and urgent effort to root out systemic injustice and repair our world.”
