This past month, Assemblywoman Stacey Pheffer Amato and her team visited the Museum of Jewish Heritage, located in Battery Park City in Manhattan, New York City. The museum is recognized as a living memorial to those who perished in the Holocaust.

Pheffer Amato was greeted by Jack Kliger, President & CEO of the Museum, who shared his familys own personal story of surviving the Holocaust.

Not long ago, Not far away a quote that stuck with me throughout the tour, reflected Pheffer Amato upon reviewing the Auschwitz Exhibit.

Auschwitz, the death camp that has become emblematic of the horrific mass extermination of Jewish people by the Nazis during World War II.

Touring the Auschwitz Exhibit was truly a somber and sobering experience, Pheffer Amato said. With my own history as being Jewish comes with a responsibility to work for peace, understanding our history, and of course never forgetting what happened during the Holocaust.
