LEGISLATIVE  RESOLUTION commemorating the observance of Holocaust Remem-
brance Day in the State of New York on April 27, 2014

WHEREAS, From 1933 to 1945, 5.8 million Jews were murdered in  the  Nazi
Holocaust as a part of a systematic program of genocide, and millions of
other people also perished as victims of Nazism; and
  WHEREAS,  Jews  who  fell  under German control in Eastern and Central
Europe were quickly stripped of their rights and property; and
  WHEREAS, The Jews who perished at Nazi hands comprised  two-thirds  of
all  European  Jewry,  and in countries such as Poland, which before the
Second World War included parts of the Ukraine and Belarus,  the  Jewish
death toll surpassed 90 percent; and
  WHEREAS,  The  People  of the State of New York should always remember
the atrocities committed by the Nazis so that  such  horrors  are  never
repeated; and
  WHEREAS,  Those  who  survived  the killing camps tell us that as many
people walked to their deaths, their last words were "Remember Us"; and
  WHEREAS, The year 2014 marks the 81st anniversary of the beginning  of
the  genocide  of  European  Jews, the darkest, most murderous moment in
history; and
  WHEREAS, We learn in the aftermath of the Holocaust that  indifference
to  genocide  cannot be tolerated; Holocaust remembrance imposes a moral
obligation to speak out; and
  WHEREAS, The Holocaust represents the darkest period in the  civiliza-
tion  of  mankind  and must always be remembered in order to prevent its
reoccurrence anywhere else in the world; and
  WHEREAS, The People of the State of New York should continually reded-
icate themselves to the principle of equal justice for all people; and
  WHEREAS, The People of the State of New York should  remain  eternally
vigilant  against  all  tyranny  and  recognize  that bigotry provides a
breeding ground for tyranny to flourish; and
  WHEREAS, Holocaust Remembrance Day, known in Hebrew as Yom Hashoah, is
a day set aside for remembering the victims of  the  Holocaust  and  for
reminding  New  Yorkers, all   Americans, and people around the world of
what can happen to civilized people when bigotry, hatred  and  indiffer-
ence reign; and
  WHEREAS, Internationally, Holocaust Remembrance Day is observed on the
27th  day  of  Nisan  on  the  Hebrew calendar, which this year falls on
Sunday, April 27, 2014; now, therefore, be it
  RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause  in  its  deliberations  to
commemorate  the observance of Holocaust Remembrance Day in the State of
New York on April 27, 2014; and be it further
  RESOLVED, That copies of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to The Honorable Andrew M. Cuomo, Governor of the State  of  New
York;  Boris  Lerman, Association of Holocaust Survivors from the Former
Soviet Union; and Pauline Bilus, Holocaust Memorial Committee.
