This year marks the 81st anniversary since the start of the Holocaust.
Between 1933 and 1945, Adolf Hitler and the Nazi party systematically slaughtered more than six million European Jews. This week the State Senate passed a resolution to observe “Days of Remembrance of the Victims of the Holocaust” during the week of April 27 through May 4.
April 28 has been designated as a day of remembrance internationally.
State Sen. Mike Stack (D - Philadelphia) says Pennsylvanians should remain vigilant against all tyranny and bigotry.
