Washington, DC - Congressman Juan Vargas (CA-51) issued the following statement in honor of Holocaust Remembrance Week:

“April 12-19, 2015 marks Holocaust Remembrance week worldwide. This is a time for us to reflect on the atrocities committed during one of the darkest periods in the world’s history. During these days, we take the opportunity to recommit ourselves to say: ‘never again’. Recounting the stories of Holocaust victims and survivors, serves as a reminder of the pain and suffering brought upon by hatred and violence.

“I invite my colleagues in Congress and my constituents of the 51st District of California to honor Holocaust Remembrance Week as we strive to foster a more tolerant world.”
