Jan. 27 is Holocaust Remembrance Day, a date to honor of the survivors of the Holocaust, the day the Auschwitz concentration camp was liberated in 1945. Many state leaders shared messages- some of hope for the future of learning from that day, some in somber remembrance, and some condemning anti-semitism in any form.

Gov. Spencer Cox issued a declaration, acknowledging the six million lives lost and the importance of never forgetting as we teach the future generation of the horrific events. He said “we must reject and condemn antisemitism whenever we see it.”

Rabbi Avremi Zippel encouraged the public to quit using Holocaust references “for political issues we disagree with.”

Senators Chris Stewart, Mike Lee, and Mitt Romney also made statements.
