On Monday, January 27th, the House of Representatives overwhelming passed Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney’s H.R. 943 – Never Again Education Act to support Holocaust education across the country.
Ahead of tonight’s vote, Congresswoman Maloney joined with Members of Congress, Jewish leaders, Holocaust survivors, and educators to mark International Holocaust Remembrance Day and discuss the importance of Holocaust Education.
“As we recommit ourselves to the promise of ‘Never Again’ on this 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, I am reminded that the lessons of the Holocaust do not just apply to antisemitism – but to all forms of hate and bigotry and I can think of no better way to honor the memories of those murdered than to make sure our students know their names and their stories,” said Rep. Maloney. “If we do not learn from history, we are doomed to repeat it. I urge the Senate to act quickly on this bill.”
