Today, the Naval Safety Command observed Holocaust Remembrance Day with a special presentation and discussion with guest speaker Rabbi Yonatan M. Warren, LCDR, CHC, USN, Senior Chaplaincy Clinician, NMRTC Portsmouth.

04/18/2023

Today is Holocaust Remembrance Day, a day to honor the six million Jewish people and millions of others who were brutally murdered during the Holocaust. It is important that we remember this dark period in human history, not only to pay our respects to those who were lost, but also to ensure that we never forget the atrocities committed during this time.

Let us take a moment to reflect on the lives that were taken, the families that were torn apart, and the courage of those who stood up against hatred and persecution. May we continue to work towards a world where diversity is celebrated and intolerance is eradicated.
