House Passes Holocaust Remembrance Amendment

Today, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) which included an amendment introduced by Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-05), Congressman Ted Deutch (FL-22), and Congressman Brad Schneider (IL-10) that would order the Secretary of Defense to include Holocaust remembrance in any commemorations of the 75th anniversary of World War II.

Following passage of the NDAA with their amendment, the Representatives issued this joint statement:

World War II ended with the U.S. and Allied Forces defeating the Nazis and liberating Europe from Hitler’s murderous regime. But as they fought their way through Europe, they uncovered the horrific Nazi network of death camps set up to carry out their Final Solution – the complete annihilation of the Jewish people. As our country plans for commemoration events marking the end of World War II, we must also remember and teach future generations about the 6 million Jews killed during the Holocaust and honor the Allied liberators of Buchenwald, Auschwitz, and other Nazi concentration camps.
