New York City Mayor Eric Adams today released the following statement in recognition of Yom HaShoah, also known as Holocaust Remembrance Day:

“As we observe Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day, we honor the memory of the 6 million Jews whose lives were senselessly stolen in the Holocaust. This day serves as a solemn reminder of the atrocities committed during one of the darkest periods in human history.

“With antisemitism on the rise across the globe today, it is more vital than ever that we not only ‘Never Forget,’ but also actively remember. It is our duty to ensure that future generations learn about this tragic chapter and work together to combat hatred, bigotry, and intolerance in all its forms.

“As mayor of the city with the largest Jewish community in the world outside of Israel, today and every day, we stand in solidarity with all people of good will and reaffirm our commitment to fighting against all forms of hate, prejudice, and discrimination wherever they exist. Let us strive to create a world where the lessons of the Holocaust are remembered and respected and where the values of tolerance, compassion, and acceptance prevail.

“May the memory of the victims be a blessing, and may their lives inspire us to build a more just and peaceful world for all.”
