Statement from Governor Chris Christie on Holocaust Remembrance Day

Trenton, NJ – Today, Governor Christie issued the following statement to mark Holocaust Remembrance Day:
“As New Jerseyans solemnly mark Holocaust Remembrance Day, we pause to pay tribute to the lives of the six million innocent victims killed by the Nazis during the Holocaust. More than 67 years ago, when the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camps were liberated, the world stood up and promised ‘never again.’ Today gives us an opportunity to remember that horrible tragedy, reaffirm that promise and recommit ourselves to never allowing such atrocities to happen again.”
