To shamefully and repulsively compare what’s happening on the border to concentration camps is a form of Holocaust denial and a gross distortion of history. If Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s young followers believe her misguided analogy, they will never comprehend the true atrocities that actually took place at Nazi concentration camps in Europe. 94 Maidens is on a mission to properly teach Holocaust education in schools and AOC’s ignorant statements combined with her stature as a US Congresswoman, and her platform as such, is a detriment to our hard work and courageous efforts. She should read up on the Holocaust, visit the USHMM near her office, and measure her words carefully lest her comments be viewed as a deliberate abuse of power. Article
BREAKING NEWS! TEXAS JUST BECAME THE 12th STATE TO MANDATE HOLOCAUST EDUCATION!! Governor Greg Abbott just signed our bill! Congratulations to our amazing TX advocates – our four ladies in a car: Ginny Wind, Varda Ratner, Sharon Greenwald, and Lisa Barry for making mandatory Holocaust education a reality in the Lone Star State!! So proud of this persistent, hard-working team that never gave up!! We did it!!
Oregon became #11 last week and hopefully Maine will be #13 soon!
The Maine Holocaust education bill passed through the House but “under the hammer” meaning no recorded vote was taken and now it goes back to the Senate on Monday. So, your help is needed once again! PLEASE call/email your state senator and ask him/her to support LD 1050. The bill will then go back to the House and one more time to the Senate. They need to know how serious we are about this law. Time is of the essence! If this bill times out this legislative session we will have to start from scratch next year!! Please act now! Appreciate your support! Spread the word! Share!
Many thanks to Sharon Yesner and United Methodist Communities at Pitman for inviting 94 Maidens author Rhonda Fink-Whitman to come speak to the residents and guests about her book and her mission to mandate Holocaust education in all 50 states! It was a fabulous event chock full of good news and the very latest updates!
Thanks to the World Jewish Congress for creating this ever-expanding beautiful map! We’ll have to update it by the end of the month, adding Texas and hopefully Maine as well! 94 Maidens is proud to be leading the charge! #Mandate #Holocaust #Education

Maine’s Holocaust education bill (LD 1050) has made it through Senate committee (a vote of 34-0!) Next stop is the House where it will most likely encounter some opposition. If you live in Maine PLEASE email your local representative and ask them to support the bill! They may vote TOMORROW!
