This is the January 29, 2020 hearing "75 Years After the Holocaust: The Ongoing Battle Against Hate" held before the House Committee on Oversight and Reform. From the opening statement of Carolyn B. Maloney: "Two days ago, the entire world came together to mark International Holocaust Remembrance Day. In addition, 75 years ago this week, in January 1945, the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp was liberated from the Nazis. It was one of the most infamous sites of the Nazi genocide. More than 1 million people were murdered there. The purpose of today's hearing is to commemorate these grave anniversaries, to remember those we lost, and to honor those who are still with us. But it is not enough to simply recognize these dates. We must also contemplate what led to these atrocities. We must remember the Holocaust in order to help combat bigotry, hate, and violence of all kinds today. [...] One issue we will discuss today is what we can do to ensure that future generations never forget the lessons of the Holocaust." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Nat Shaffir, Brad Orsini, Jonathan Greenblatt, Hilary O. Shelton, Dore Gold, and Edna Friedberg.
