On behalf of Halina Wind Preston Holocaust Education Committee Chair, Steve Gonzer, we are honored to share the wonderful news that on Sunday, June 30th, the Delaware Legislature House Chamber passed House Resolution (HR18), which encourages all Delaware public and private school teachers to teach their students about the Holocaust and genocide. The attached resolution is now on permanent record in the Delaware State Legislature. Please know that HR18 will be shared with the Delaware Department of Education and Superintendents of all Delaware school districts as well as all public and private schools. Although not a law, HR18 serves as a catalyst for a future Holocaust education bill that will become law. We gratefully acknowledge and thank Representative Debra Heffernan (D), sponsor of HR18, as well as Representative Jeffrey Spiegelman (R), co-sponsor of HR18.
We wish to acknowledge and thank HEC Chair, Steve Gonzer, who has worked tirelessly in getting HR18 sponsored and passed. There were countless hours, meetings and behind-the-scenes efforts that allowed HR18 come to fruition.
