Congresswoman Maloney Statement on Yom HaShoah

WASHINGTON, DC – On Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day, Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney (D-NY), author of the Never Again Education Act, released the following statement: 

“Today, on Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day, we mourn the six million Jews and six million others who were violently murdered during the Holocaust. We also honor the survivors who have dedicated their lives to sharing their stories so that we may fulfill our promise of ‘Never Again.’

“If we do not learn from history, we are condemned to repeat it. That is why I am proud to have passed the Never Again Education Act last year, which will give our educators the resources and training they need to teach our children the important lessons of the Holocaust and the consequences of antisemitism, intolerance, and hate. We are in the midst of a growing crisis in our nation fueled by bigotry and must face it head-on.

“Although it has been seventy-six years since the Holocaust, the lessons it teaches us are invaluable and timeless. Violent incidents like those on the streets of Charlottesville, on the sacred grounds of houses of worship, and even inside the United States Capitol on January 6 tell us that this fight against bigotry and hate has not yet been won. Today, I call on all of us to renew our pledge of ‘Never Again’ and personally vow to combat racism in all forms, wherever and whenever it arises.”

Mission…to Alonnisos, a TNH Documentary

O oceanic you sing and sail White on your body and yellow on your chimeneas For you're tired of the filthy waters of the harbors You who loved the distant Sporades You who lifted the tallest flags You who sail clear through the most dangerous caves Hail to you who let yourself be charmed by the sirens Hail to you for never having been afraid of the Symplegades (Andreas Empeirikos)   What traveler has not been fascinated by the Greek islands, drawn by the Sirens’ song of a traveler’s dreams? TNH and our video show ‘Mission’ marked the change of the season by transporting viewers into the heart of summer.
