City Attorney Mike Feuer Statement on Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day

"It is particularly profound that Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day, should coincide with the L.A. March for Justice, which commemorates the anniversary of the Armenian Genocide. And it is especially disturbing that on this day, as we remember the six-million Jews and millions of others murdered, and as we vow to never let it happen again, that anti-Semitic incidents in our country have climbed 86%. Meanwhile, Gay men in Chechnya are being rounded up, tortured and – in some cases – killed, according to Human Rights Watch. The Holocaust did not start in concentration camps. It started with words, escalating into brutal acts of hate abetted by those who stood by and did nothing."
