Today is International Holocaust Remembrance Day, a day when all of us reflect on the immense tragedy of the Holocaust, which occurred during World War II. No minority or marginalized group must ever be the target of such hate and violence. #WeRemember pic.twitter.com/QLMDoOdi4j

Today we recognize International Holocaust Remembrance Day, which marks the Jan. 27, 1945 liberation of Auschwitz. As Elie Wiesel said, "To forget would be not only dangerous but offensive; to forget the dead would be akin to killing them a second time." pic.twitter.com/Nsli6qKcjS

Today is International Holocaust Remembrance Day.
As we reflect on the hatred and lies that led to the death of millions, we cannot ignore the prevalence of those same sentiments in today’s society.
We cannot allow such a future here in America.#WeRemember

Today marks the 76th anniversary of the day that #Auschwitz & #Birkenau were liberated. Thx to @AJCGlobal, I've visited these sites of mass murder. We must #neverforget what the Jewish people (& other minorities) endured as we observe #HolocaustRemembranceDay. @AuschwitzMuseum
