Holocaust Awareness Week

This week, April 7-14, is Holocaust Awareness Week, which the Colorado General Assembly will be commemorating with SJR13-026.  The Joint Resolution will be heard on the Senate floor this Thursday, April 11, and following Senate passage will move to the House.  Holocaust Awareness Week remembers the 11 million people who died in the Holocaust, at least 6 million of whom were Jewish, and strives to create awareness so that they are never forgotten, and also so that such genocide can be prevented in the future.  You can watch the General Assembly's proceedings live as they offer speeches and tributes in rememberance of Holocaust victims and survivors.  The Colorado Channel will broadcast the proceedings live on Thursday morning, but they will also be archived on the website for future access.
