A teenager is making history in Oregon today as her bill to mandate Holocaust education is introduced! Go get em’ Claire Sarnowski! In loving memory of Holocaust survivor/educator Alter Wiener who worked tirelessly to make this happen and will be there in spirit, no doubt! #94Maidens was proud to provide support for this bill and author Rhonda Fink-Whitman proudly submitted testimony for today’s legislative hearing. Many thanks to Senator Rob Wagner for championing our cause! Good luck team! #thingsthatmatter #OR11
Please help us make Oregon the 11th state to mandate Holocaust education! We have a bill! SB 664 needs your support! It will be introduced in the coming weeks. Please contact OR legislators and ask them to co-sponsor it. Sample scripts and legislative contact info can be found at this link. Please SHARE and ask your friends to call and email too! Ty! #OR11
Today has been International Holocaust Remembrance Day. We continue to mandate Holocaust education one state at a time. Please view and share our viral video to help keep our momentum going. #NeverForget #NeverAgain #WeRemember
We at 94 Maidens are heartbroken and completely saddened by another devastating loss as we mourn the recent passing of our dear friend, American WWII HERO, MR. ARTHUR STERN. Arthur was sweet, humble, and as kind as they get and today would have been his 97th birthday. Arthur was an amazing father, grandfather, soldier, citizen, and we were blessed to be able to call him our friend. We thank him for his service and wish him a happy heavenly birthday. May he rest in eternal peace. This world just lost a true mensch in every sense of the word. The void is palpable. His memory is already our blessing. For many years, Arthur would not speak of his experiences as a foot soldier in Germany during WWII. In 2012, we were lucky to be able to get him to finally open up. Please click here to watch as Arthur describes what he saw when he liberated the Nazi concentration camp, Dachau. You can find more video clips of our interview with Arthur Stern at our 94 Maidens YouTube channel. RIP Sir Arthur. We adored you. You were a great man and you will be greatly missed. 😢
