    Bothell, WA – April 12, 2012 – In a recent proclamation, Bothell Mayor Mark Lamb proclaimed the week of April 15-22 as Holocaust Remembrance week in conjunction with the National Days of Remembrance.  He encourages citizens of Bothell to strive to overcome intolerance and indifference through learning and remembrance.

     

    The Holocaust was the state-sponsored, systematic persecution and annihilation of European Jewry by Nazi Germany and its collaborators between 1933 and 1945. Jews were the primary victims – six million were murdered. Gypsies, the handicapped, and Poles were also targeted for destruction or decimation for racial, ethnic, or national reasons and millions more, including homosexuals, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Soviet prisoners of war and political dissidents, also suffered grievous oppression and death under Nazi tyranny.

     

    “We, the people of the City of Bothell, should actively rededicate ourselves to the principles of individual freedom in a just society,” said Mayor Lamb.

     

    The Days of Remembrance have been set aside to remember the victims of the Holocaust as well as to reflect on the need for respect of all peoples.  For more information about the National Days of Remembrance, please visit the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum website at www.ushmm.org. A program about the Holocaust is also airing on Bothell’s cable station, BCTV Channel 21/26, through the month of April.
