Cicilline Statement on Holocaust Remembrance Day

Monday, April 24, 2017

PAWTUCKET – U.S. Congressman David N. Cicilline (D-RI) issued the following statement today:

“Today, the world pauses to remember more than six million innocent Jews – men, women, and children – who lost their lives at the hands of the Nazis. Even with the passage of more than 70 years of time, the Holocaust still serves as the worst example of humankind’s capacity for evil.”

“But on Yom HaShoah, we should also remember the ordinary men and women who demonstrated incredible courage in the face of unspeakable atrocities. People like Irena Sendler, Monsignor O’Flaherty, and Oskar Schindler. Everyday citizens who risked their own lives in order to save others. Let us all find inspiration in their example and recommit ourselves to the sacred promise we have repeated over the years – never again.”
