Today, Congressman John Tierney released the following statement to mark the annual day of commemoration that honors the 6 million Jews who lost their lives in the Holocaust:
"On Holocaust Remembrance Day, we join with our friends and allies in Israel and around the world to recall those who perished in this senseless tragedy and to honor the lives of the survivors and their families. We must continue to speak out, today and every day, against anti-Semitism, prejudice, and bigotry of all kinds. The cost of staying silent is too great. I hope that you will join me, and others who share these values, in continuing to speak out for basic human rights and in saying we must never forget."
