For the 35th year, state leaders joined with survivors and families to commemorate the holocaust.
Governor Wolf joined lawmakers from both sides of the political aisle, to reflect on the horrors of the holocaust.
They also mentioned recent attacks on churches, mosques, and synagogue, including the shooting at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh in October.
“Bigotry advances no one. It advances no place. And yet, bigotry exists in America right now, as the Tree of Life attack so horribly shows,” said Gov. Wolf. “I say enough is enough. We need to step up and end this behavior, before it becomes normalized.”
Survivors and family members lit candles at the ceremony, to honor those who lost their lives in the holocaust.
