President Issues Holocaust Remembrance Proclamation

He remembers the six million Jews killed by Nazis in WWII and more than a thousand Israelis killed by Hamas on October 7.

President Joe Biden released a proclamation recognizing the Days of Remembrance of the Victims of the Holocaust from May 5 through May 12.

“During Yom HaShoah and these days of remembrance, we mourn the six million Jews who were systematically targeted and murdered in the Holocaust, one of the darkest chapters in human history,“ he stated. “We honor the memories of the victims, the courage of the survivors, and the heroism of those who stood up to the Nazis, and we recommit ourselves to making real the promise of ‘Never Again.‘“

The president referenced his administration’s National Strategy to Combat Antisemitism, saying his “commitment to the safety of the Jewish people and the security of Israel is ironclad.“

“During these somber days of remembrance, we mourn the lives tragically stolen in the Shoah and on October 7th. As we hold the Jewish community close to our hearts, we recommit to remembering so that what happened can never be erased,“ he continued. “We honor the courage, strength, and resilience of the Jewish people, who have inspired the world for generations by turning pain into purpose, healing into hope, and darkness into light.“

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the president and his administration to follow through on the commitment to address antisemitism and to support the nation of Israel.
  • For wisdom for U.S. officials as they discuss the Israeli war against Hamas and other terrorists.
  • For the peace of Jerusalem and for God’s purposes to be accomplished in that nation.
