Overwhelmingly Passes Holocaust Education Bill

The House of Representatives overwhelmingly passed a bill providing funding and resources for schools to provide Holocaust education throughout the country.

According to a press release from Rep. Carolyn B. Maloney (D-NY), one of the leading co-sponsors of the Never Again Education Act, the bill allocates $10 million over a five-year period toward programs providing training for teachers on the matter as well as expanding the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum’s website that provides the relevant curriculum and course materials.

The bill passed with 393 votes in favor and five against, according to Hadassah.

“I can think of no better way to honor the memories of those murdered in the Holocaust than to make sure our students know their names & their stories,” Maloney tweeted.
