TRENTON – In conjunction with Holocaust Remembrance Day yesterday, Gov. Chris Christie filed 16 direct appointments to the New Jersey Commission on Holocaust Education with the Secretary of State’s Office.
Among the New Jersey residents appointed to the commission are Frances G. Dorsky of Springfield, Paul F. Gibbons of New Providence, and Rabbi Jay Weinstein of East Brunswick.
“As New Jerseyans solemnly mark Holocaust Remembrance Day, we pause to pay tribute to the lives of the six million innocent victims killed by the Nazis during the Holocaust,” Christie said yesterday. “More than 67 years ago, when the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camps were liberated, the world stood up and promised ‘never again.’ Today gives us an opportunity to remember that horrible tragedy, reaffirm that promise and recommit ourselves to never allowing such atrocities to happen again.”
