Published

Utah – Jan. 27 is the day the Auschwitz concentration camp was liberated in 1945, a date to honor the survivors of the Holocaust, Holocaust Remembrance Day.

Many state leaders shared messages – some of the hope for the future of learning from that day, some in somber remembrance, and some condemning antisemitism in any form.

According to Gov. Spencer Cox, “We must reject and condemn antisemitism whenever we see it.”

He issued a declaration, acknowledging the six million lives lost and the importance of never forgetting as we teach the future generation of the horrific events.

Rabbi Avremi Zippel encouraged the public to quit using Holocaust references “for political issues we disagree with.”

Senators Chris Stewart, Mike Lee, and Mitt Romney also made statements.
