Quirk-Silva Urges More Teaching of Holocaust History
(Sacramento) – In her remarks on a measure to proclaim April 16, 2018 as California Holocaust Memorial Day, longtime educator Assemblywoman Sharon Quirk-Silva (D-Orange County) said over the years there has been less and less attention on this history. Assembly Concurrent Resolution 207 would urge all Californians to observe this day of remembrance for the victims of the Holocaust. “We continue your legacy, what you went through, by telling those stories and keeping those memories alive,” Assemblywoman Quirk-Silva said. “So keep telling your stories, and thank you survivors.” Hear her full remarks in this Assembly Access video.
