BROOKLYN, NY – On this very solemn day, International Holocaust Remembrance Day, we reflect on the moment when darkness and despair turned into hope as millions were liberated from the Auschwitz death camp 75 years ago. 

Hate can only prevail in the absence of humanity, which is why we must remain forever united against all forms of anti-Semitism.  

May we never forget Auschwitz, the millions of innocent lives lost, and families devastated by the Holocaust.

As a city that is home to New Yorkers of diverse cultural backgrounds, we must continue to fight against prejudice and bigotry.
