Pelosi Statement on Holocaust Remembrance Day

April 19, 2004

Washington, D.C. -- House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement today on Yom Hashoah, Holocaust Martyrs' and Heroes' Remembrance Day:

"On Yom Hashoah -- Holocaust Martyrs' and Heroes' Remembrance Day -- we remember the six million Jews who were murdered by the Nazis while the world stood shamefully silent. We weep for the innocent lives lost, and we mourn with those who loved them.

"To honor those who perished, we must educate our children and the world about the horrors of the Holocaust as a part of fighting resurgent anti-Semitism and intolerance around the globe. To leave our children a world of peace, we must combat hatred, bigotry, and extremism wherever they are found and work aggressively to eliminate the ignorance that is their foundation.

"The memory of the atrocities is a sobering call to reflection and prayer, and an urgent call to action."
