Governor signs bill ensuring Holocaust taught in Oregon schools

KTVL 10 News

A new law ensures the Holocaust will always be taught in Oregon schools.

Gov. Kate Brown signed Senate Bill 663 into law Monday morning.

The bill requires that the Holocaust and genocide be taught to age-appropriate students, starting at the beginning of the 2020 school year. 

“This has been a longtime vision of our survivor community and of the Oregon Jewish Museum Center for Holocaust Education,” said Eva Aigner, a Holocaust survivor.

Survivors of the Holocaust spoke to the bill’s impact on students.

Lakeridge High School sophomore Claire Sarnowski first reached out to legislators about creating the law.

“I think that my interest came from when I met a Holocaust survivor, Alter Wiener. And I knew when I met him at 9 years old, that his friendship would change my life,” she said.

Wiener, 92, spoke about his experiences across the state. He died in December after being hit by a car while crossing a street in Hillsboro.

“His dream came true. So, he’s watching, and I know he’s happy that he accomplished this,” said his son, Martin. “My father worked on this for a very long time, and I was crying listening to the governor, and I’m very proud that this thing went through.”

Alter Wiener was among millions of other Jews forced into labor camps by the Nazis in occupied Poland during the Holocaust. Most of his family and friends were murdered.

“I am certain that he would be grateful to know from his suffering, we have created something good,” Brown said. “And in sharing his experiences, we will bring change.”

    It is obvious that they are worried about American nationals when they begin passing laws that insist a LIE is to be taught as truth to students.

    OMG….Enough with the made up sob stories already.

    The guy is dead and six feet under. Give it a rest. Stop canonizing the bastard.

    Henry, I’m sorry to hear this in your area. Apparently the Holohoax is more important than learning our Constitution, Bill of Rights and US history.

    Unfrigginbelievable…..

      BECAUSE THE COMMUNISTS INVADED POLAND!! THE NAZI WAS THERE TO LIBERATE THE POLISH GERMANS FROM THE “JEW”.

      • # 1 NWO Hatr says:

        Every REAL survivor of those camps told the same story… they were brutalized when the Bolshevik Russians ‘liberated’ them from the Germans, and were treated well by the Germans when under their control.

        I’m still trying to figure out why this state has almost gone to sh#t (ala Commiefornia) ever since I moved here.

        Was it something I said???

    “Yes, the ‘Never Again Education Act’ will soon be sucking up taxpayer money like an enormous vacuum cleaner and creating lots of new jobs for holocaust instructors, who will, of course, all be Jewish. Public schools will be teaching the next generation about what a great place Israel is and how the holocaust justifies vigilant groups like AIPAC and ADL, though it will not mention how they have corrupted the U.S. government and turned America’s foreign policy into an Israeli wag-the-dog.”

    “It is now being asserted that the descendants of so-called holocaust survivors have been genetically psychologically damaged, in the womb as it were, so reparations will presumably continue forever.”
    — Philip Giraldi

    “One might reasonably currently expect that serial pedophile Jeffrey Epstein will use the holocaust get-out-of-jail-free card in his defense, claiming that his recollection of the event has so traumatized him that he did bad things that he would not have otherwise considered. Poor Jeffrey. He has suffered so much.”

    I think they should teach this.

    And start with that if 6 million had been killed that would have only left two million scumbag converts to a religion they reinvented and even changed the name of on whole of the planet. None of which are hebrews and none of which have ancestry from middle East. Only kasarian Bolshevik eastern europe. Hence they use a different language and culture altogether.

    Teach it.
