FRAMINGHAM – Today is Holocaust Remembrance Day. The City of Framingham mayor Charlie Sisitsky and First Lady Robin Kaye issued the following statement:
“As we commemorate Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day, we remember the millions of precious lives lost during one of the darkest periods in human history. Today, we stand together to bear witness to the horrors of the Holocaust and honor the strength of the survivors who refused to let their spirit be broken. We pay tribute to the brave individuals who risked their lives to save Jews and other targeted groups during the Holocaust. Their selflessness serves as an example to us all, reminding us of the power of compassion and the responsibility we share as human beings to protect one another. As we mark this solemn occasion, we also reaffirm our commitment to fighting hatred and bigotry wherever it exists. May the memories of those lost be a blessing and serve as a reminder of the importance of never forgetting our past.
