Governor Jared Polis signs a bill that will help ensure that we willl never forget the horrific crimes against humanity that occurred in the Holocaust. In death camps across NAZI-occupied eastern Europe, millions of Jews and hundreds of thousands of Gypies, homosexuals, Catholics, socialists, and others from young children to the elderly were industrially slaughtered. From now on, Colorado high school students will learn about the Holocaust and genocide studies, some of the darkest times for humanity, so that we may never repeat history nor silently bear witness to genocide.
Thank you to Representative Dafna Michaelson Jenet, Representative Emily Sirota, Senator Steve Fenberg, and Sen. Dennis Hisey for their work on this important issue.
This bill signing took place at Jewish Colorado on Wednesday, July 8, 2020.
