Today we remember the 6 million Jews who died in the Holocaust of World War II. On Monday, My family was present in the California Assembly Chambers for the Holocaust Remembrance Observance. Our Speaker, John Perez presided over a powerful program which honored both survivors of the horrors of the Holocaust and the liberators. The Speaker’s office funded an amazing film called “Echos of Truth” Here is a link to the project which was headed by Assembly member Michael Allen and Assembly member Betsy Butler.
